What is a GFI Outlet?
Although many home or business owners may have GFI outlets in their homes, they may not recognize them or even know what they do or how they work. A ground fault circuit interrupter, or GFCI/GFI outlets (also known as receptacle) is a special type of outlet generally found in areas where water is often present and used on a regular basis. Such common areas include bathrooms, basements, utility rooms, or kitchens. You can recognize a GFI 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. GFI outlets have become standard in all modern home construction.
How Does a GFI Outlet Work?
A GFI 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 GFI 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.
