What Is a GFCI Outlet?
GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters) outlets and circuit breakers are designed to guard against electrical shocks. They work by monitoring electrical current and tripping or cutting power when outlets detect excess current flow down an unintended path. They’re easily installed, inexpensive, and work faster than fuses or circuit breakers. They also work in outlets that aren’t grounded.
GFCI outlets are required by code in wet or moist locations such as:
- Spa and pool areas
- Wet bars
- Unfinished basements and crawl spaces
- Outbuildings and garages
- Utility and laundry rooms
