GFCI Installation Your Beacon of Quality 

GFCI Installations in Manassas

Affordable, Same-Day Service

A GFCI outlet acts as a safety control at the plug-in itself, rather than relying solely on the circuit breaker to trip if there's a surge. Beacon Home Services installs these outlets quickly and correctly for you, so you know you can count on the outlets to protect your home. Get started with our electricians in Manassas by contacting our team at (703) 343-9884.

What Is a GFCI Outlet?

GCFI outlets are easily discernable from regular outlets in that they have two buttons between each port. These buttons are the outlet's own personal breaker. If it's tripped, you simply press the "Reset" button, effectively flipping the breaker as you would at the main electrical panel box itself.

These GFCI outlets have been around since the 1960s, when they were first introduced to help protect homeowners around swimming pools. Since then, the outlets have spread through the home to dramatically cut down on incidents of both electric shock and electrocution.

The outlets in your home have enough electricity flowing through them to cause permanent damage or death. The GFCI outlet is designed to trip at the slighted surge, keeping that electricity from flowing into your body.

For this reason, our Manassas electricians recommend installing GFCI outlets throughout your house, as they are the most effective and reliable way to protect your family members from danger and your home from electrical fires. Electrical safety codes specifically require that all countertop outlets be GFCI.

These outlets are required to be installed in:

  • Kitchens at countertop height, especially near the water source or around where you will use countertop appliances.
  • Bathrooms, where you frequently use multiple appliances such as hair dryers and electric shavers.

    Troubleshooting Your GFCI Outlets

    Sometimes, homeowners run into problems with outlets that need to be either repaired or replaced. We recommend making sure you test the outlets frequently to keep these problems from becoming serious safety concerns. We'll show you how to do this when we inspect your outlets.
