Glenn McMillan with American Certified Home Inspections did a inspection today and found faulty GFCI outlets. This is a newly renovated or flip house. You should check your GFCI and AFCI outlets from time to time.
Today more than ever homes are equipped with important electrical safety devices to help protect people and property. Most prominent are the GFCI Receptacle, which helps protect people from shock or electrocution resulting from ground faults, and the recently introduced AFCI Receptacle to help prevent electrical fires caused by dangerous arcing conditions. Leviton combined these 2 technologies to create the new SmartlockPro Dual Function AFCI/GFCI Receptacle, offering homeowners the assurance of both shock and fire protection in one smart device. The SmartlockPro AFCI/GFCI offers an effective alternative to a DFCI breaker and features the convenience of localized test and reset. It provides clear visual indication of status making it intuitive for users to assess various conditions such as power availability and GFCI self-test status. The device also clearly distinguishes between a trip caused by a ground fault and a trip caused by an arc fault.
