What are GFCI outlets?
When you take a look at an outlet in your home, you will see that there are two slots and a hole. The left slot is a little bit bigger than the right slot, also known as the neutral slot. The right slot, which is the smaller of the two, is known as the hot slot. The hole that is between the two slots is the ground.
A GFCI outlet closely monitors the amount of current that is passing between the neutral and hot slots. If an imbalance is detected between the two slots of more than 4 or 5 milliamps, the GFCI outlet will trip the circuit to prevent an overload. This is a key safety feature that makes GFCI outlets very safe, which means that they will almost never cause an electrical fire or shocks.
How are these used in the home?
GFCI outlets are very useful in many areas in a home. Any room that has running water in it should be equipped with GFCI outlets. This is because moisture in the air greatly increases the risk of shock in an electrical outlet.
This means that you should equip your kitchen and bathrooms with them. If you have a pool, then it is crucial that you have GFCI outlets installed near it, as well. Even rooms that have a lot of plants that need to be watered frequently should have GFCI outlets installed.
If you want to make your home’s electrical system as safe as possible, you should make all the electrical outlets in your home GFCI outlets. This will ensure that everyone in your home is protected from the threat of shock when they are using an electrical outlet anywhere in your house.
