Ground-fault circuit-interrupters, or GFCIs, are life-saving units found on electrical receptacles (outlets), circuit breakers, extension cords, and different electrical equipment. They notice imbalances in the electrical current and rapidly shut off the power to reduce the risk of shock. For example, if you are drying your hair in the bathroom and some water splashes into your hair dryer and creates a brief circuit, the GFCI outlet will turn itself off-in a tiny fraction of a second. GFCI safety is most generally required in places where electrical energy is probable to come into contact with water.
Different techniques of GFCI safety have been available since 1971, and each revision of the National Electrical Code (NEC), which is revised each three years, has increased the requirements. There are different protecting measures built into a wiring system, however GFCI safety is the one that protects towards shock and electrocution.
