If you don’t know what a GFCI repair is, just take a look in your bathroom or kitchen. Most homes are built with a GFCI, or Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter outlet. GFCI’s are designed to protect us against electrical shock. With the National Electrical Code or NEC, updating every three years, GFCI placement and requirements become more stringent and enforced. They’re required for areas that are near water such as bathroom outlets, garage outlets(even the outlet for the garage door opener), outdoor outlets, laundry rooms and kitchen outlets.
If you live in an older home, you might not have the GFCIs you need or required by code. If your GFCI outlets are not working properly, it’s important to replace them immediately. Our professional team offers a vast selection of electrical services, including GFCI installations, testing, and replacements.
GFCI outlets are essential for electrical shock prevention in Charleston. A GFCI repair should only be handled by a licensed electrician! A GFI measures differences in power, shutting off when it detects more power coming in than going out. Having GFCI’s installed in all the right places and keeping the ones you have maintained is important for ensuring the safety of you and your family. A good place to start is by making a habit to test your GFCI’S in your home or business every month.
