In this, Episode 008 of our InspectBits series, Gary Gentry of Quality Residential Inspections and your Raleigh Home Inspector, present some information regarding Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) devices. We get asked allot of questions regarding these very common, and required I might add, devices. What we often find is they just simply aren’t functional…or that they’ve been physically damaged in some way. These devices are required to be installed to protect us…the people that occupy the homes where they are found. They prevent us from being electrocuted should we find ourselves in contact with water and electricity at the same time…That’s not a very good combination and the results are unpleasant at the best and potentially deadly at the worst.
We hope you found this video informative…the proper function and operation of GFCI devices is something that should always be part of a professional Home Inspection.
