A GFCI or ground fault circuit interrupter is one of the greatest advancements in electrical safety in the past four decades. These are the outlets you often come across in areas of the house where moisture poses a risk. Some common areas include:
- Unfinished basements
Use the GFCI Protector Outdoors
As rain, snow and humidity present a problem for outdoor receptacles, it is also ideal for outdoor installation. This helps to ensure that your lights and anything else you plug outdoors, such as stereo systems or the car vacuum, is safe from interference from moisture.
GFCI protection is one of the best investments you can make to protect your outdoor outlets from moisture.
