You’ve probably encountered a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) before without knowing it—it’s an outlet that has a red test and a black reset button. These devices are instrumental in promoting electrical safety because they can turn off an electrical current as soon as they detect problems with that current, thereby reducing the chance for electric shock and even an electrical fire.
The following infographic is a visual representation of just how GFCI outlets work to keep you and your family safe. If you don’t already have these installed in your home, call J-Five Electric at 214-703-3995 and ask about our electrical outlet installation specials.
