GFCI Outlet Installations

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCIs) are devices designed to protect you and your family from electrical shock hazards and prevent electrical fires by shutting off electrical flow. At Aleco Electric, we have a team of experts to help you in the installation and servicing of GFCIs, ensuring your home or business is safe.

What is GFCI?

Ground faults occurs when an electrical current strays from its intended path and flows to the ground through an unintended route in forms of water or a human.  This causes electric shocks, electrocution, and even house fires. Unlike standard outlets, GFCI can detect these instances and quickly shuts off the power to prevent serious injury. This makes GFCI outlets particularly important in areas where electricity and water are close, such as kitchens, bathrooms, and outdoor spaces.

Why do you need GFCI Outlets?

  • Enhanced Safety – GFCI outlets can help you keep spaces in your home safe and prevent any electrical related accidents. Gain peace of mind that you added an extra layer of protection for your home and your family.
  • Code Compliance – Some building codes and safety standards have included GFCI outlets as a requirement in specific areas of your home. Ensuring your home is up to code helps avoid potential fines or issues when selling your property.
  • Protection Against House Fires – Electrical fires are caused by various electrical faults such as overheating and combustion. GFCI outlets help prevent electrical fires by detecting ground faults and providing immediate solution.

Safety starts with a simple step.
