Safety Switches Perth
A safety switch, commonly referred to as an RCD, enables an almost instantaneous disabling of power in situations where a problem has occurred. Thanks to our residential electrician Perth services, we can install any number of RCDs and provide your family or work place with the peace of mind that the risk of electrocution is eliminated.
Safety switches Perth have other practical daily benefits as they help regulate your home’s electrical output, which ensures you can access every electrical outlet and use all appliances as and when required. Have you ever had an old iron that keeps tripping the electrical supply? An RCD is a great way to identify your faulty items.
Residential Electrician Perth - How RCDs Save Lives
RCDs will instantly cut off the power supply if a person touches a live part and receives an electric shock. If severe enough an electric shock can be fatal, which is why RCD safety switches are mandatory if you are going to put your property on the market for rent or sale.
Our residential electrician Perth RCD services can ensure that residual current devices (RCDs) are installed in accordance with the wiring rules to protect all the power points and lighting circuits within the home. This safety check must be performed before the land title is transferred. If two or more RCDs protecting all power points and lighting circuits are not installed, you will need to engage a licensed electrical contractor to install them to comply with the wiring rules (AS/NZS 3000).
If you are renting your property out landlords must ensure RCDs are installed in accordance with the wiring rules on the switchboards of their rental premises. If RCDs are not fitted tenants should contact the managing agent or landlord and request that RCDs be installed as required.
EV Electrical Services will happily perform all safety checks and any installations required, to ensure the property is fully compliant prior to sale or renting.
How many RCDs?
Two RCDs is a legally required minimum but more than two may be needed. A fully qualified member of our expert team can visit and assess your RCD requirements prior to installation and advise you of the correct number and rating of RCDs to ensure your premises complies with the regulations.
By installing two or more RCDs, the property’s circuits can be divided evenly between them, ensuring some light and power remains if one RCD operates.
