GFCI Installation in Atlanta

Ground fault circuit interrupters, or GFCI outlets, protect against electrical shock. GFCI outlet installation is a cost-effective way to protect yourself from electrical shock while also bringing your property up to contemporary building code requirements. MD Electrical Integration offers GFCI installation in Atlanta, and will execute GFCI outlet installs and replacements to keep your family safe.

When you have an electrical current flow through a circuit, there is the potential for danger. If you should touch something that is connected to a live wire, there is the risk of receiving an electrical shock. GFCI outlet installations protect against the risk of shock by monitoring the flow of current in each outlet. If there is a significant drop, the GFCI will cut the flow of current preventing the risk of electrocution. GFCIs are a great way to keep your family safe.

Talk about beautifully, skillfully, professionally done work! MD Electrical truly Blessed our kitchen with their Exceptional service!!! After being disappointed by the poor workmanship of a previous contractor, I sought the help of proreferral.com to find a license electrician in the area. Through that service, I was contacted by Mark of MD Electrical and he scheduled my consultation for the very next day. Based on his consultation, I could tell that he was knowledgeable and very serious about his work. He discovered that the poor job featured measurements that were not symmetrical, lights were not matching, ceiling cuts were not clean, and the overall electrical work not being up to code. He was very informative. Later that evening, as promised, I received his invoice along with a sketched visual of his corrections for the job! After paying a reasonable deposit, he came out the next day and worked diligently to beautify the project! There weren’t any hidden fees and I loved most that he did exactly what he said he was going to do. Additionally, he was very kind and respectable to my family, which was a plus. I most definitely recommend him to any and everyone who needs a professional licensed electrician! (See before and after)

I had an incredible experience by objectively selecting MD Electrical Integration LLC. I had the opportunity in reading this company's history, which indicated they were well organized. As we are all aware, due to COVID-19, there has been serious delays with parts and service companies, absolutely devastating for over a year. I purchased a water heater that needed to be brought up to the current City of East Point Modification Code, After reviewing MD Electrical Integration LLC's History, I decided to seek their help in passing the necessary code. I had the opportunity in meeting Electrician Mr. Mark Howell, which was very impressive in the way he carried himself, especially in a positive professional manner by displaying his knowledge and skills. Mr. Howell was punctual, courteous, and a people's person. I was very pleased with him bringing my water heater up to modification required code. Mr. Howell performed a disconnect procedure which was absolutely necessary in order to pass The City of East Point, mandatory code. When East Point Building Inspector Mr. Timothy Scott, came to do his inspection he stated. "This is what I wanted to see, an excellent job well done". If I may express to all, when it comes that time in your life that you will need electrician, by all means call Mr. Howell and I can guarantee you'll be just as humble and grateful as I'm with Mr. Howell's abilities. Sincerely, Ruth Harris

GFCI Installation in Atlanta - What Is a GFCI Outlet?

GFCI outlets are necessary in locations where there is a high risk of electrical shock, such as kitchens, baths, and garages. The “test” and “reset” buttons on the GFCI receptacle can be used to identify it. By measuring the quantity of energy flowing in a circuit, these outlets help safeguard you from electrical risks. The GFCI turns off power to the outlet when it senses an imbalance in the flow of electricity.

If you have concerns about the safety of your electrical system, you can have a licensed electrician install a GFCI outlet. You should also install GFCI outlets in high-risk areas of your home.

These include A garage: You should have a GFCI outlet installed in the garage, where you keep your lawnmower, bikes, and other potentially dangerous equipment. A kitchen: You should have a GFCI outlet installed near your kitchen sink. A bathroom: You should have a GFCI outlet installed in the bathroom, where you keep your power tools. A laundry room: You should have a GFCI outlet installed in the laundry room, where you keep your clothes dryer. A basement: You should have a GFCI outlet installed in the basement, where you store potentially dangerous items like chemicals.

GFCI Installation in Atlanta - How to Operate a GFCI Outlet

To restore electricity, push the “reset” button on your GFCI outlet if it stops working under normal operating conditions. Because GFCIs are more sensitive to slight fluctuations in current, they are far more dependable than relying on the circuit breaker in your electrical panel to stop current flow. In fact, before an electric shock may impact your heartbeat, they are intended to cut off power flow. Because of this vital safety feature, it is crucial to test all GFCI outlets in your home on a regular basis.

Where can I find a GFCI outlet? GFCI outlets are typically found near sinks and showers, or in basements, where water can flow through the floor and harm a less reliable outlet. To test the outlet, unplug the appliance and flip the circuit breaker to the “on” position. If the outlet cuts power, it is likely a GFCI. Where can I find a GFCI breaker? GFCI breakers are typically found inside the electrical panel in your home, and they are not as reliable as a GFCI outlet. To test the GFCI breaker, unplug the appliance and flip the circuit breaker to the “on” position. If the power doesn’t flow, it is likely a GFCI.

GFCI Installation in Atlanta - How to Test GFCI Outlet Performance

If your GFCI outlet fails any element of this test, contact MD Electrical Integration for a GFCI installation in Atlanta.

GFCI Installation in Atlanta - Where Are GFCI Outlets Required?

Since 1971, when they were authorized for use with swimming pool equipment and along the outside walls around pools, GFCIs have been needed in residences. GFCI outlets are now required in many additional places of your house, particularly in locations where the risk of electrical shock is heightened owing to probable exposure to risk factors such as water.

GFCI outlets are needed in the following areas:

GFCI Installation in Atlanta - Limitations of GFCI Outlets

Refrigerators and freezers should not be plugged into GFCI outlets. These appliances can cause electromagnetic interference, which can cause GFCI outlets to trip. GFCIs are not compatible with most stoves and dryers, which require 240 amp power outlets. GFCI outlets can also be tripped by small appliances with heating components, such as irons, hair dryers, or toaster ovens. Finally, overloading an extension cable with too many gadgets will trigger the GFCI outlet into which the extension cord is plugged.

If a GFCI detects that it has been tripped and no water has flowed through the circuit, it will immediately shut off power to the outlet to prevent water from flowing through it and potentially damaging the GFCI. Most homeowners will plug all of their devices directly into the wall receptacle, which is what a GFCI is designed to protect. However, some homeowners will choose to use an electrical outlet that is protected by a circuit breaker instead. With an outlet protected by a breaker, a GFCIf will not trip when too many different devices are plugged into it.

Upgrade Your Home’s Power Receptacles to GFCI Outlets

For a long time, many older homes lacked GFCI outlets, placing their residents at danger of electrical shock. Install these low-cost, possibly life-saving gadgets as soon as possible.
