Ground Fault Interrupter Outlets In The Minneapolis & St. Paul Area
Ground fault interrupter outlets (GFI), protect your Minneapolis family and visitors from a potentially dangerous electrical shock where water is present near an outlet.
Areas near water sources such as sinks, bathrooms, kitchens, outdoor areas, and garages should have GFI outlets installed. The GFI senses moisture and shuts the current off when it's present in order to protect you from electric shock. You can identify these outlets by looking for a "reset" or "trip" button.
If you don't already have GFI outlets, call the expert electricians at Electric City Corp to have them installed in your Minneapolis home as soon as possible. Our professionals can also assist you with outlet repairs and other residential electrician safety services.
