If you’re like the average homeowner, you don’t know what a GFI is, and because of that, you should avoid any DIY home improvement projects in that area. A professional electrician knows that a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter outlet, or GFI/GFCI, protects you from electrical shock. These types of outlets are required for outdoor areas and should be installed in kitchens and bathrooms as well. For proper installation and replacement of your GFIs, choose the professionals at All Star Electric. We have decades of experience and all the necessary tools to handle a variety of GFI-related services in San Antonio.
A Ground Fault Interrupter outlet provides electrical shock prevention by shutting off when it detects a major difference in power coming from the “hot” side. Since they play such a critical role in the electrical safety of your home, you should always work to maintain the outlets. One of the simplest steps you can take from home is testing ground fault interrupters every month.
If you test an appliance and it doesn’t shut off and let you “reset,” the outlet isn’t working—don’t panic though! All Star Electric has you covered. As part of our residential electrician services in San Antonio, we check and replace GFIs while offering many benefits, including:
