GFCI Outlet Installation in Boerne & the surrounding Texas Hill Country

There are not enough public service announcements in the world that can prepare you for an electrical shock. Whether you’ve experienced this sensation or not, it’s worth bearing in mind that your electrical system is not something to be toyed with. The Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) outlet was developed to prevent the risk of electrocution at times when electricity moves between a power source and a grounded surface, such as your body. They are now required throughout the home as well as outdoors. But your GFCI is only as good as the quality of its installation.

What is a GFCI Outlet?

A Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter outlet looks a lot like an ordinary outlet, in that it has two slots, the neutral wire slot being slightly larger than the hot one, as well as a hole at the bottom that offers additional grounding protection. A GFCI is visually different in that it also has test and reset buttons.

What sets this outlet apart is that it constantly monitors the electrical current flowing through that circuit. A ground fault occurs when an electrical path opens up between the current and a grounded surface. A GFCI can detect even incredibly small changes in the amperage between the current flowing into the circuit and that returning. When it detects an issue, it shuts the outlet down to prevent electricity from harming you.

The Importance of Professional GFCI Outlet Installation

But all of the protective benefits of a GFCI ultimately rely upon the quality of its installation. Whether you need a comprehensive GFCI outlet installation for a new home construction project, or you need to replace your existing GFCIs with new ones, we can take care of the job. We take electricity seriously and the GFCI is your best chance to avoid dangerous situations. These devices may also be installed directly at the breaker box to provide comprehensive protection.

It’s a good idea to test your GFCIs from time to time to make sure that they are still working.
