What Is a GFCI Outlet?

GFCI stands for Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter. A GFCI outlet is a device that protects you from electrical shock. It does this by monitoring the electrical current that flows through the outlet. If the GFCI detects a change in the current, it will automatically shut off the power to the outlet. This can happen in as little as 1/40th of a second.

When a GFCI outlet shuts off the power, it is called “tripping.” You can tell if a GFCI outlet has tripped because the reset button will pop out. The reset button is located between the two outlets. To reset the GFCI, simply push the reset button back in.

It is important to note that a GFCI outlet can still be working even if the reset button is popped out. To test the GFCI, push the test button. The reset button should pop out, and the power should go off. Push the reset button to turn the power back on.

Where Are GFCI Outlets Required?

GFCI outlets are required in the following areas of the home:

  • Kitchens
  • Bathrooms
  • Garages
  • Laundry rooms
  • Outdoors
  • Anywhere within 6 feet of a sink

It is important to note that GFCI outlets are required in all new homes. If you are buying or selling a home, you may need to have GFCI outlets installed in order to meet the current building codes.

Why Do I Need GFCI Outlets?

GFCI outlets are designed to protect you from electrical shock. They are especially important in areas where water is present. If you accidentally drop an electrical appliance into water, a GFCI outlet can save your life.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, GFCI outlets have reduced the number of electrocutions in the United States by 50%. However, many homes still do not have GFCI outlets installed. If your home does not have GFCI outlets, you should have them installed as soon as possible.
