Securing Your Property with GFCI Outlets
The term “GFCI” or “GFI” is short for “ground fault circuit interrupter,” and it is a critical outlet to have in your home or business in order to keep you safe in locations where there is a high likelihood of being electrocuted. Bathrooms or kitchens, which are close to water sources, are extremely dangerous if there are no GFCIs to carefully monitor the flow of electricity. Whenever the GCFI identifies the slightest imbalance because the current has broken from its designated channel, it will break the circuit, thus keeping you safe from harm even in ungrounded outlets. It is important to never use these with large appliances like refrigerators or freezers, however, because they can trip on their own, catching you unawares.
Some critical places that we can install reliable GCFIs include:
- Laundry rooms
- Utility closets
- Pools and spas
- Interior and exterior bars
Installing AFCI Outlets
Other important types of breakers to have are arc-fault circuit interrupters, also called AFCIs. While these devices also preserve you from electrical hazards, they detect an alternative kind of issue – that of electrical fires. If an electrical appliance is overheating, or a wire has become damaged on account of being torn out or even being chewed by rodents, this creates a dangerous situation. AFCIs monitor whenever such arcing is occurring, and immediately halt the current in your outlet before a devastating fire starts. We can install powerful AFCIs to properly secure your home.

Whenever you need any installations, repairs, or replacements for your outlets or switches, it is important to get in touch as soon as possible with our dedicated experts. Building codes for recent construction require that you have these updated devices; however, even if your property is older and does not have such mandated codes, it is in just as much danger – if not more – of such electrical hazards. Keep your property secure and safe by immediately reaching out to our experienced team at Patterson Electrical Service Inc.
