Important Facts about GFCI Outlet Locations

GFCI outlets can detect when there is a problem of any type that can ultimately cause or lead to an electric shock. When this occurs the power to the outlet is cut immediately. This ensures any dangerous issues are thwarted. These outlets are a method for protection. There are specific requirements that come into play regarding their installation.

GFCI outlets are installed to address safety concerns for home kitchens, wet bars, pool lighting, bathrooms and other areas of your home or business. They are required by current building codes. Without them, electric shocks could be a common occurrence. They must be installed in residences, businesses, construction sites, garages and even hotels and motels within 6 feet of any area that is susceptible of getting wet.

When buying a home, it is important to know that as the buyer you are responsible for checking and identifying defects of any type before closing. Typically, the buyer will engage the services of a professional home inspector to help identify and analyze any potential problems. As part of this process, ensuring that your potential new home meets the required electrical standards is primary to the pre-purchase process.
