GFCI Outlet Installation

Not all household outlets are created equally. Ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) outlets work to prevent electric shocks. They detect when electricity flows out and starts to enter the body and cut off power almost instantaneously.

The National Electric Code specifies GFCI outlet installation by licensed Springfield electricians in certain areas throughout the home.

  • All bathroom outlets must be GFCI
  • In kitchens, any outlet within six feet of a sink or serving countertop spaces must be GFCI
  • In laundry rooms, outlets within six feet of a sink’s outside edge must be GFCI

Outdoor Waterproof Outlet Installation

Per the National Electric Code, almost all outdoor outlets must be GFCI. Weatherproof covers need to be installed to protect the outdoor GFCI from moisture. Outdoor waterproof outlet installation helps homeowners protect against moisture intrusion while still having the ability to use the outlet when it’s raining.
