Frequently Asked Questions

How do you make a GFCI circuit protected?

GFCI circuit breakers are simple: By installing one in the service panel (breaker box), it adds GFCI protection to an entire circuit, including the wiring and all devices and appliances connected to the circuit.

Can a GFCI outlet protect its own outlet?

Yes. The GFCI outlet will only protect its own outlets and any outlets that are connected via it's 'Load' connections. Anything spliced before the GFCI will behave as if there is no GFCI.

Is it OK to use GFCI in a bathroom?

Yes it is perfectly fine, only certain areas need gfci, and if the usage numbers for that circuit allow it, it could go other places in the house e.g., bathroom gfci to hall outlet, hall outlet doesn't need to be gfci protected.

Are there non GFCI outlets downstream of a ground fault?

Are non-GFCI outlets that are downstream of a GFCI outlet ground fault protected if they are fed from the GFCI outlet's load side?

Where to put ground fault protection fuses in your home?

For homes protected by fuses, you are limited to receptacle or portable-type GFCIs, and these may be installed in areas of greatest exposure such as the bathroom, kitchen, basement, garage, and outdoor circuits. A GFCI should be used whenever operating electrically powered garden equipment (mower, hedge trimmer, edger, etc.).
