Electrical Safety Services in Victoria
An important device for your safety in your home is the GFCI outlet. GFCI is a term that stands for ground fault circuit interrupter. It is also known as GFI.
Generally speaking, GFCI outlets are required in areas wherever moisture or dampness could be.
In general, this may be near bathroom plugs, kitchen countertops, outside plugs, pool pumps, hot tubs, laundry areas, or other wet and damp locations.
These devices can detect BCriances in the electrical current, so when a BCriance is detected, they will automatically shut off power to the protected part of the circuit.
If you have a plug or a device that does not work in one of these locations, the GFCI button might be tripped. If the cause isn’t from moisture, you could have a short or surge going on that should be repaired.
First, ensure that the situation that caused the outlet to trip is resolved such as ensuring that all areas anywhere near your outlet, counters, sinks, flooring, etc are dry.
Then reset the outlet by pushing the button. The plugs have a test and a reset button. Press the reset button.
If this does not resolve the issue, you should not use the outlet and call a repairman right away. Our GFCI outlet repair experts can repair and install GFCI outlets and GFCI breakers throughout your home.
You will not only be in compliance with local building codes but will also, and most importantly, be providing safety for your family and guests.
