Round Rock Home Inspector Discusses Home Safety With GFCI’s

Home Safety and GFCI Protected Outlets

As a licensed professional home inspector, I test electrical outlets every day during home inspections. Ground fault circuit interrupters or GFCI is an inexpensive electrical device that can either be installed in your electrical system or built into a power cord.

 

These devices are used to protect you from severe electrical shocks, burns and injuries by detecting ground faults.

GFCI Outlet

 

A ground fault is an unintentional electrical path between a power source and a

grounded surface.  Ground faults most often occur when equipment is damaged

or defective, such that live electrical parts are no longer adequately protected

from unintended contact. If your body provides a path to the ground for this

current, you could be burned, severely shocked or electrocuted.

 

Areas that GFCI protection should be in or around all wet areas such as:

Pools, hot tubs, and receptacles that are located:

  • Outdoors
  • Bathrooms
  • Garages
  • Kitchens and island cabinets
  • Wet bars
  • Laundry rooms/utility sinks
  • Crawl spaces/basements

 

Consider using a GFCI protected cord if you are using power equipment outdoors.

 

GFCI receptacles should be tested often. It takes no special equipment or device to test, just simply push the test button. It should trip, and then push the reset button to power up the outlet. If it does not trip you should have the receptacle replaced.

 

Many home injuries can be avoided each year by using and testing these devices.

Round Rock Home Inspector Finds Dangerous Electric Panel

Dangerous Electrical Panel

Zinsco Electric Panel

During a recent home inspection, this Zinsco electric panel was discovered. Zinsco panels often can fail to operate properly and may leave homes and homeowners at risk to both fire and electrical shock. These panels can work fine for years, but as homes have increased energy demands, these panels may overheat and portions of it melt.

If a breaker melts to the bus bar of the panel and can no longer adequately trip in case of an overcurrent or short circuit, an extreme amount of power from the outside electrical supply surges into a home’s panel and circuits. Once that happens, it cannot be stopped or shut off manually. Electricity will burn until it runs out of fuel or the wires melt. The panel could overheat and catch fire, causing serious harm to a home and its occupants.

Round Rock Home Inspector Discovers Dirty Coil

http://www.roundrockhomeinspector.com Round Rock Home Inspector discovers this dirty a/c coil during a home inspection. A dirty a/c coil can reduce the efficiency of the unit and it can cost you money everyday even during the heating cycle. The obstruction on the coil restricts the air flow going back through the unit.

Keeping a clean filter will keep the coil from becoming dirty and by using a higher quality filter will add life and lower utility bills in the future. I recommend using a filter made by AFM Filters, they are made right here in Texas. The link to order the filter is http://afmfilters.com/CharlesSchiller.
