Key Features of Our GFCI Outlet Installations

Our fully insured electricians can take care of any GFCI outlet issues you experience. With our updated equipment, we’re able to install GFCI outlets in Port St. Lucie quickly and easily. We also provide regularly scheduled testing services for them.

Some of the key features of GFCI outlets are:

  • A third grounding outlet (instead of the normal 2-pronged ones) to remove the necessity for grounding adapters
  • Protection in their locations and the locations of other outlets that run to the same circuit breaker
  • Ability to cut off electricity if a dangerous electrical change is detected

When to Consider GFCI Outlet Replacement

There are several clear indicators that signal the need for a new GFCI outlet installation. Firstly, if you notice that your existing GFCI outlet is frequently tripping, even after resetting it, it may be a sign of internal wear and tear, and it's time for a replacement. Additionally, if the outlet shows any visible signs of damage, such as cracks, discoloration, or exposed wires, this poses a safety hazard and necessitates immediate replacement. Lastly another sign is if the GFCI outlet is situated in a moisture-prone area like a bathroom or kitchen, and it has not been functioning reliably, as moisture can contribute to electrical issues. 

Ultimately, ensuring the proper function of your GFCI outlets is crucial for electrical safety, so if you observe any of these signs, it's advisable to consult a professional electrician to install a new GFCI outlet promptly. Our team at Excel Electric, can assess your needs and recommend your with the proper GFCI outlet needed. 

Benefits of Our GFCI Outlet Installation Services

Compared to standard electrical outlets, GFCI outlets are an incredible step up in helping protect your family – and your home – from any electrical disasters.

Some of the more significant benefits of GFCI outlets include:

  • Built-in electricity flow sensors to stop arcing and electrocution
  • Their ability to detect ground faults and fend against electrical fires
  • Their ability to minimize any damage an out-of-control electrical current may cause to the major appliances in your home

Where are GFCIs Required to Be Installed?

In Florida homes, GFCI outlets are required by the National Electric Code. These receptacles are necessary for providing additional protection and preventing shock hazards in areas where it is likely moisture will accumulate and come into contact with electrical components. GFCI outlets must be installed in:

  • Bathrooms
  • Kitchens (within 6 feet of a sink)
  • Garages
  • Outdoors (outdoor receptacles)
  • Crawl spaces
  • Unfinished basements
  • Boathouses

Installing these outlets can greatly reduce safety risks and protect your family from potential shock related accidents.

Excel Electric looks forward to helping you improve the safety of your home by installing new GFCI outlets.
