GFCI Outlets Installation Houston
GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter), is an outlet that can prevent electrical shock in wet locations such as bathrooms, kitchens and outdoor areas of your Houston home. Having a GFCI can help prevent electric shock and house fires caused by electrical outlets. GFCIs turn off an electric power circuit when it senses a current flowing along an unintended path, such as through water or a person. Once the problem is fixed then you can reset the GFCI by pressing the “reset” button.

Once you have GFCI outlets in your home, you should test them monthly. Press the “test” button next to the “reset” button. If the power does not cut off then the GFCI is not working properly. If this is the case you should have it replaced. You’re relying on it to protect you and your family so make sure it’s working properly.
