Is GFCI required to pass a 4 point inspection.
Tuesday, December 7, 2021
GFCI-protection is not required to pass a 4 point inspection. A four point inspection is not the same, or as thorough, as a home inspection. The inspector simply answers a list of questions on a standard form that provides information for an insurance company about any problems that could cause a claim in the near future. The form that is acceptable to most insurance companies in Florida is the Citizens Insurance “Sample Form Insp4pt 01 18,” and it has no questions about whether GFCI-protection is provided for circuits in the wet areas of the home. But, if there are GFCI’s, an inspector might test them and note any that do not trip on the report.
