GFCI Outlet Installation

What does GFCI stand for and what are they?

GFCI stands for ground fault circuit interrupter. They’re electrical devices designed to protect people from electric shock by monitoring the flow of electricity in a circuit. If a ground fault (an unintentional electrical path to ground) happens, the GFCI detects it and quickly shuts off the power to prevent dangers or damage to anything plugged in.

They’re sensitive to changes in current, typically shutting off within milliseconds of detecting a fault. This quick response prevents electric shock injuries and fatalities.

Where do you need them in a house?

According to U.S. electrical codes, GFCI outlets are required in specific areas of a house where water is present, as water increases the risk of electrical hazards.

These areas include:

  • Bathrooms
  • Kitchens
  • Garages
  • Unfinished basements
  • Outdoor locations

Additionally, any place within 6 feet of a sink, such as laundry rooms or wet bars, should have GFCI protection. These locations are more prone to dangers due to how close they are to water, making GFCI outlets an essential safety feature.

What’s the benefit of having them in rooms where they’re not required for code?

Installing GFCIs in rooms not mandated by code, such as living rooms or bedrooms, can provide additional safety benefits. Even though these areas are less prone to water exposure, the presence of GFCI outlets can still protect against electric shocks from faults in electrical devices or wiring issues.

By ensuring that all areas are equipped with GFCI protection, homeowners can improve overall electrical safety and reduce the risk of electrical fires, contributing to a safer living environment.

Can I install them myself?

While it’s possible to install GFCIs yourself if you have electrical knowledge, we recommend you hire a licensed electrician to ensure proper installation and compliance with local codes. Incorrect installation can result in the GFCI outlet not functioning correctly, which could leave you vulnerable to electrical hazards.

If you decide to install them yourself, turn off the power at the circuit breaker, follow manufacturer instructions carefully, and use a voltage tester to confirm the power is off before starting work. If you have any doubts or lack experience, contact a professional for this job.
