What is a GFCI protected outlet?

A GFCI (ground-fault circuit interrupter) is only as good as its installation and inspection. A GFCI is the only protection device designed to protect people against electric shock from an electrical system. 

GFCI outlets are typically installed in bathrooms and kitchens, where a water source may be present. The GFCI can be integrated into the outlet. When you plug in an appliance, such as an electric shaver, the GFCI outlet monitors the amount of power going to the device. If you accidentally drop the appliance into sink full of water, the GFCI detects the interruption in current and cuts the power ... and possibly saves your life. 

How can you tell if you have an outlet equipped with GFCI capabilities? You will notice a "Test" and a "Reset" button (and sometimes an indicator light) built right into the outlet.

When the "Test" button is pressed, it should deactivate the outlet and any other outlet fed from it – indicating a properly functioning device.  The "Reset" button is the one that you depress to reactivate the outlet or outlets in the event of deactivation resulting from a fault.

Does Koryente offer after hours service?

Why should I hire a licensed electrician? Can't I hire anyone to do my electrical work?

In the state of Texas, a person must be licensed to perform electrical work.  From the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) website:

Anyone who performs electrical work in the state of Texas must be licensed.  Electrical work is defined as: Any labor or material used in installing, maintaining or extending an electrical wiring system and the appurtenances, apparatus or equipment used in connection with the use of electrical energy in, on, outside, or attached to a building, residence, structure, property, or premises;

Service entrance conductors, as defined by the National Electrical Code.

There are exemptions to this, i.e. a homeowner can do his/her own electrical work, however, in most states, this also requires permitting.  

When you hire a licensed electrical contractor, you are hiring a professional that has met the requirements of the state examination, knows the National Electric Code(NEC) and continues to educate him/herself through continuing education courses required to renew their license each year. A licensed electrical contractor focuses not only on your project, but on the safeguarding of persons and property from hazards arising from the use of electricity.  

Licensed contractors are also required to carry business insurance in case of property damage, loss of property or life, which adds another layer of protection for the customer.
