Do I Need GFCI Electrical Outlets?

Question:
My house was built prior to 1990 and we don’t have GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) protected electrical outlets. Should we upgrade the existing outlets?

Answer:
Absolutely! Today GFCI electrical outlets are required in all wet areas around the home, i.e., kitchens, and baths, garages, basements and on the exterior of the home. They are an inexpensive way to protect your family from electrocution when using electrical devices around water
