I own a house built in the 1950's so currently none of the outlets are
grounded. idealy/eventually i want to add a grounding rod and rewire
the house but until then i was wondering how good of an idea replacing
all the 2-prong outlets with GFCIs is ? My understanding is that such
a replacement is blessed by the NEC ?GFCIs are subject to nuisance tripping. No way in heck that you want them

on refrigerators and stuff like that.
