GFCI Outlet Installation Services

GFCI Fixture

GFCI stands for Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter, and it means an outlet that can prevent electrical shock in locations where water may be present. This includes those outlets in bathrooms, around kitchen sinks and appliances, and all outdoor outlets.

A GFCI device protects us from receiving electric shocks from faults in the electrical devices we use in our home. It works by comparing the input current on the hot side to the output current on the neutral side. A GFCI acts as a circuit breaker of sorts, shutting off power to the outlet and devices in use when a ground fault is detected.

A GFCI has two buttons: a test button and a reset button. GFCI outlets should be tested once a month for safety reasons.

The electrical systems in our homes are integral in ensuring that we are able to live with all of the modern conveniences that we demand. With that in mind, though, you must remember that electricity can be dangerous if not used properly within the home. These days there are more safety precautions than ever before, which allows homeowners to use electricity with confidence. One such precaution is the GFCI outlet. Chances are that you have at least a few GFCI outlets installed throughout your home.

What are some factors that affect the cost of installing GFCI outlets in Sacramento?

  • Number of Outlets: The cost of installing GFCI outlets depends on the number you need. Installing multiple outlets in one visit can be more cost-effective than scheduling separate installations. Bonney will help you determine the optimal number of GFCI outlets for your home’s safety.
  • Location of Outlets: The location where the GFCI outlets will be installed can impact the cost. Installing outlets in easily accessible areas like kitchens or bathrooms is generally less expensive than in hard-to-reach places, such as basements or outdoor areas.
  • Existing Condition: The existing condition of your electrical system can affect the cost. Homes with older or faulty wiring may require more extensive work to safely install GFCI outlets. Bonney’s electricians will assess your system and provide an honest estimate for any additional work needed to ensure safety and compliance with Sacramento’s local regulations.

Do I Need GFCI Outlets?

GFCI’s can be used to upgrade older two-prong (non-grounded) outlets to three-prong (grounded) outlets without installing any new wire. As a precaution, some homeowners choose to replace all outlets in their homes with GFCI models. You may also choose to replace outlets that have gone “bad”, or no longer work as intended.
