GFCI Outlets

…The safety of our St Petersburg community and the homes that they live in are very important to us

GFCI outlets or ground fault circuit interrupters, protect against the risk of electrical shock.

Installing them in your St Petersburg home provides an inexpensive solution to preventing incidents of shock, and bringing your home up to code. A GFCI outlet in your St Pete home detects that the current in an appliance is no longer flowing in its proper circuit. It shuts off the current within milliseconds. Great for any place where water may be such as kitchen, bathroom, laundry and garage.

GFCI outlets are similar to a normal outlet with two plugs, but these outlets are equipped with a button that reads test/reset on it. GFI outlets are known for their safety features when it comes to electricity around water. Direct Splashing of water in a bathroom or pool would cause a GFCI to trip preventing electrocution. GFCI outlets prevent electrocution by stopping the flow of electricity protecting you from shock, or damage to the breaker that could cause a fire in your home.

Do not use GFCI outlets for receptacles for refrigerators, freezers, or other appliances, as they could trip without your knowledge. Older homes most often lack the safety of GFCI outlets.
