How To Test Your GFCI Outlet

By detecting dangerous electrical current flow and shutting off power, GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) outlets save thousands of lives each year. But after around 10 years, the monitoring circuitry inside a GFCI wears out. This is why knowing how to test your outlets is vitally important.
Testing your GFCI outlet is the best way to make sure you and your family are safe. If you’re not sure if you have GFCI outlets, or need to make sure you are in code, contact us at (703) 690-0449.
