A GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) outlet is a must-have in any type of home. This type of receptacle prevents against electrical shock, and is installed in rooms such as kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, garages, unfinished basements, crawl spaces, and near hot tubs and pools, where water is existent. The licensed master electricians at KB Electric LLC install numerous GFCI outlets in and around the Philadelphia area for older homes and new homes. In order to keep your house up to code and keep you and your family safe, it’s important that the areas mentioned above contain GFCI receptacles.
Most older homes lack GFCI outlets. In just the U.S., about 200 people die each year from ground faults. That’s roughly two-thirds of all electrocutions that happen in the home. Getting GFCI receptacles installed in the required places of your house can protect you and your family from the dangers of deadly ground fault electrocutions.
