GFCI Outlets

GFCI Outlets – In newer homes there are usually 4 or more GFCI circuits.  These are more sensitive to grounding than normal outlets.  You can identify these outlets by the test and reset buttons on the outlet face.  Their normal locations are 1 in the garage, 1 in a bathroom and 2 in the kitchen.   Older homes may not have as many if any at all.   We recommend you test and reset each GFCI to ensure their proper operation. For more information on GFCI outlets see our post Here.
