Did you know?
You probably recognize this outlet, with buttons that say “test” and “reset” on the front.
Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) receptacles were invented in 1961, and first required in home applications by the 1971 National Electrical Code. Since then, electrocutions, electrical house fires, and other electrical safety incidents have been reduced by as much as 95 percent!
If several outlets in your kitchen or bathroom are suddenly not working, check around for a GFCI that may need to be reset. Here is an informative article from National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) – “5 Ways to Check GFCIs to Help Ensure Continued Safety in Homes”
And if resetting the GFCI does not bring power back to your outlets, give us a call. We would be happy to help!
