Common Home Concerns: GFCI Protection

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs) have been used in homes since the '70s and are often installed in "wet or damp" locations. Current requirements call for all 120 volt 15 amp and 20 amp receptacles in the garage, kitchen, bathrooms, exterior, and crawlspace/unfinished basement be GFCI protected.

Receptacles at outdoor locations, and at indoor locations near sinks, tubs, or showers, should have ground fault protection to reduce the risk of fatal shock. Is your home protected by GFCIs? We would be happy to inspect your home for electrical issues and more, give us a call.
