GFCI Receptacle Services – Install or Replace

Your home should be a safe place and Hickey Plumbing, Air & Electrical can help protect you and your family with our GFCI receptacle installation and replacement services.

Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) receptacles are designed to protect you from electrical shock and reduce the risk of electrical fires. GFCI outlets cut power quickly when imbalances or excess currents are detected. The response time is within fractions of a second – shutting off the electrical current to minimize the risk of electrocution and to prevent damage.

The National Electrical Code (NEC) requires GFCI receptacles be used in places where there is a higher chance of water coming into contact with the outlet.
