The National Electric Code, also known as the NEC, was first published in 1897. Since its beginning, the NEC has remained America’s central standard code for electrical installation. Every three years, the National Fire Protection Association updates the NEC to ensure that the national standards remain at the forefront of current societal demands, emerging technologies and new discoveries. One significant example is GFCI protections. Years ago, GFCI circuits weren’t required, but today, all newly built homes and businesses must use GFCI protection for any circuits installed in areas where water may be present. Still, there are countless bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms that remain unprotected despite this change in the NEC code. It’s very important that your electrical system remain up to date, not only for the sake of selling your home in the marketplace, but also for the safety and wellbeing of your family and friends.
