Installing Electrical Outlet

How Does It Work?

  • The difference between a GFCI outlet installation and a regular outlet is that the GFCI outlet works on the balance between the hot and neutral wires. It senses water or a short immediately when either touches the hot (“live”) wire.
    The GFCI immediately stops power flow and protects you from electrical shock. It also protects plugged-in devices from shorting or burning.
