GFCI Outlets: Essential for Your Safety

There are about 300 electrocutions each year that occur in and around the home. Many of the electrocutions could have been prevented by a GFCI outlet. A GFCI can literally save your life by detecting ground faults, and preventing electricity from traveling through your body to the ground.What is a GFCI?A GFCI is a ground fault circuit interrupter. A GFI has a built in sensor which detects changes in the electrical current to an appliance that it is connected to. The GFCI compares the electrical flow going into the appliance and the electrical flow going out from the appliance. If a dangerous drop in the current is detected, then the GFI will turn off all power in less than one second. For example, (as explained by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission), "Suppose a bare wire inside an appliance touches the metal case. The case is then charged with electricity. If you touch the appliance with one hand while the other hand is touching a grounded metal object, like a water faucet, you will receive a shock. ...
