GFCI Installation

What is GFCI?

A ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) can help prevent electrocution. It a person’s body starts to receive a shock, the GFCI senses this and cuts off the power before he/she can get injured.

GFCis are generally installed where electrical circuits may accidentally come into contact with water. They are most often found in kitchens, bath and laundry rooms, outdoors and garages.
