Outdoor Electrical Safety

Posted on: May 16, 2016

Who doesn’t enjoy spending time outside either hanging out with family and friends on the patio or relaxing by the pool on a bright sunny day? And we can’t deny that playing music through a sound dock or portable speaker makes spending time in the yard even more enjoyable. Even if you’re outside all day cleaning up the yard, trimming bushes or mowing the lawn, chances are you’re going to need to plug at least one electrical device into an outdoor outlet. What’s the common denominator here? Keeping your electrical devices safe during use outdoors and it all starts with GFCI installation.

What is a GFCI?

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters (GFCI’s) are electrical safety devices that trip electrical circuits when they detect ground faults or current leakage. GFCI outlets will instantly shut off power to the circuit and prevent deadly shock.

Why are they important?

GFCI devices are an essential component to your home’s electrical system and required by law in most cities and towns. ABC can help you ensure that your entire home is fully protected with GFCIs designed to keep today’s technology-filled homes safe from the danger of accidental electrocution, providing an important layer of safety for your family.

They’re required wherever any of your electronic devices have the potential to come in contact with water. This includes the kitchen and the bathroom as well as any exterior area of your home.

In order to keep your electronics protected this spring and summer, contact the expert electricians at ABC today! We’ll get those GFCIs installed right away so you can take full advantage of the beautiful weather.
