What is a GFCI Outlet?

Although many home or business owners may have GFCI outlets in their homes, they may not recognize them or even know what they do or how they work.

Such common areas include bathrooms, basements, utility rooms, or kitchens. You can recognize a GFCI outlet by it’s red and black buttons which are used to reset or test the outlet in order to make sure it’s working properly. GFCI outlets have become standard in all modern home construction.

How Does a GFCI Outlet Work?

A GFCI outlet works by monitoring the current running from the wall into any electronic device such a hair dryer or a toaster. If the current flowing to the electronic device is not even with the current returning from the device, then the current is leaking or moving toward a dangerous area such as water. The GFCI outlet automatically cuts off the current and avoids possible disaster. This reduces or eliminates that possibility of electrocution by water. In order to re-engage the outlet, you’ll simply push the restart button which is generally the red button. Keep in mind, however, pushing the reset button will only work if the danger of electric shock has been removed.
