The GFCI receptacle is one of the best technologies that have been made when it comes to electrical devices. GFCI outlets have been designed specifically to protect you and your family from electrical shock.
The GFCI can interrupt household circuits when there is a difference between the current in the hot and the neutral wires. When the GFCI detects the difference in current, the GFCI will automatically cut off.
The two types of GFCI protection are GFCI outlets and GFCI breakers. Both GFCI circuit breakers and GFCI outlets are extremely sensitive and will detect a few milliamps difference the hot and neutral wires and trip the breaker to remove a potential shock hazard.
It’s important to know where GFCI’s should be installed around your home and business. That is where Best Electric Service can help you. GFCIs are required in your kitchen, bathrooms, garages and all outdoor outlets. Specific rules must be followed when it comes to GFCI breakers and outlets.
When it comes to GFCI’s, here is what is essential. GFCI’s should have been tested and certified by a UL certified company. Another important factor is correctly installing the GFCI? And the last key factor is, are GFCIs installed where they are required by the National Electric Code?

What Others Say About Us
I was extremely pleased with the work Joe did for me this past week and wanted to say something positive so others would consider him for jobs. But the rating has to be done through a google account, and I do not want to have an account with them – the information required is personal, and I have no doubt sold immediately to places that do solicitations. But if there is a way to insert my comments, so they contribute to the rating system, here they are. I wanted to say this: I have an older home and a not-so-robust budget. Joe inspired confidence with his knowledge, solved a sticky problem for me with my new range, left everything looking good and accommodated my work schedule. His fees were competitive and, most importantly, I am confident the work will stand up to the test of time. I would recommend him highly to anyone asking for an electrician.
I called Best Electric for a problem I was having with non-working pendant lights. Joe promptly called back to schedule an appointment. He arrived on time, was straight forward with the pricing and was able to diagnose and fix my problem in a relatively short time. While he was at my home he also was able to hang a new chandelier. I would highly recommend Best Electric!
