Los Angeles, CA, February 12, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- The California Real Estate Inspection Association (CREIA) advises homeowners to test GFCIs.
GFCIs (ground fault circuit interrupters) save hundreds of lives each year, but like all mechanical devices they can fail or their circuitry can simply wear out. Learning how to test them can help identify GFCIs that need replacement.
Gary DeWitt, a Certified CREIA Inspector demonstrates how to test GFCIs in this online video: https://vimeo.com/152820198
If you are unsure, home inspections provide an important independent evaluation of property.
CREIA is dedicated to consumer protection and education. Go to www.CREIA.org/Find-An-Inspector to locate a qualified CREIA inspector near you.
