GFCI Tripping

Our Electricians Troubleshoot & Fix All GFCI Issues

Ground fault circuit interrupters are one of the most important safety features of a home’s electrical system. These devices are important because they protect residents from dangerous electric shock from outlets.

GFCIs trip for a variety of reasons. Frequent tripping could be a sign of an issue that needs to be fixed with your home’s electrical system. If you have a GFCI issue, it’s important to call the professionals from Mister Sparky® for help. Our team is prepared to safely diagnose your GFCI tripping and offer effective repair or installation to fix the problem.

What Do GFCIs Do?

A GFCI outlet is most common in areas prone to damp conditions such as a bathroom, kitchen, pool area, and other outdoor locations. A GFCI detects unexpected electrical behavior, which could cause electricity to flow from a person to the ground—an event that can be deadly. While fuses and breakers protect devices from electrical surges, GFCIs have the important task of protecting humans.

What Causes a GFCI to Trip?

A GFCI can trip because it’s doing its job or because it is going bad. As with any device, a GFCI can fail after years of use. Electrical trips are also known as ground faults and can happen for a variety of reasons.

GFCIs can be tripped because of the following:

  • Water
  • Debris
  • Wiring deterioration
  • Bad insulation
  • Overloaded circuits

Regardless of what’s causing your GFCI to trip, an electrician should address the problem as soon as possible. Since GFCIs are important safety features, they should always be working properly. In some instances, a GFCI trip can be an early indicator of an electrical emergency.
