Ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCI) protect you from the risk of electrocution. They also defend you against a nit-picky home inspector. Homes in Spring must have GFCI outlets or breakers in kitchens, bathrooms, garages, laundry rooms, and other places near water. A quick visit from Aaron’s Electrical Service’ Spring electricians can determine where you need GFCIs and can professionally install them.
We recommend adding GFCI outlets if you plan on buying or selling a home in Spring or if a long time has passed since your last electrical inspection. New editions of the National Electrical Code require GFCIs in more places because it’s become clear that safety is necessary.

GFCI Outlets in Spring: What to Know
A GFCI outlet detects when electricity is flowing to an improper grounding point. When water is present, it’s more likely that this will result in injury from shock. That’s why the electrical code in Texas requires GFCI protection in rooms with plumbing and outdoors. Spa tubs, wet bars, and laundry rooms are some of the places that older homes probably need GFCI added—talk to our electricians in Spring, TX about your particular needs.
In Spring, we all love to spend time outdoors on our decks and patios or around the pool. The electrical outlets that serve these areas must be GFCI to protect against electric shock from an electrical system.
Installing GFCI Outlets in Spring
Any outlet replacement, or a new outlet installation, should be performed by a licensed electrician. A GFCI outlet installation that is not completed by a professional electrician may result in sparks that could cause a fire. GFCI outlets are not more difficult to install than regular outlets, but it must be done right or else you won’t have the proper and effective GFCI protection.

If you don’t want GFCI outlets, we can install GFCI breakers at the panel. These breakers will protect every outlet on the branch, but you will need to visit the breaker panel to test and reset the GFCI function.
