GFCI Outlet Wiring & Installation
Need a GFCI outlet installed or moved? We can install your GFCI outlet, or any type of electrical outlet, for that entertainment unit you just purchased. We can also move an existing outlet to accommodate renovations or new furniture.
What’s GFCI outlet wiring?
GFCI stands for ground-fault circuit interrupters. You’ve seen them before. They look like regular three-pronged outlets, but they are actually mini circuit breakers that can shut off current to an outlet in as fast as 1/40 of a second.
Why GFCI outlet installation matter?
- Safety first: GFCIs are much safer than traditional outlets. They’re required on outlets that come within six feet of a water source, but we recommend you put them on all outlets in and around your home.
- Technology: Keep your home up to date with the latest technologies and building codes.
- Resale: Most home inspectors now require that GFCI's be installed before a home is purchased/sold. Swap things out before you have to. Making changes on your terms can save time, money, and help avoid hazardous incidents.

What Can Cause a Power Surge?
A lightning strike to a nearby power line may trigger a surge to enter your home, or something as simple as turning on the vacuum cleaner can trigger a surge as well. Anything that’s plugged in can get “fried,” whether it’s turned on or off. Avoid such a costly home mishap with a quality surge protector system.
