What are RCD Switches and Why are They Vital

RCD (Residual Current Device) switches, also called safety switches, are essential electrical safety mechanisms in your home’s switchboard. RCDs constantly monitor the flow of electrical current in your circuits. If there is any imbalance, like a person receiving a shock, the RCD detects the fault and cuts the power in milliseconds to prevent electrocution and fire risks.

While fuses and circuit breakers protect appliances, only RCD switches protect lives by preventing severe electric shocks. Unfortunately, deaths still occur that could have been avoided with properly installed and maintained RCDs.

Is Your Home Compliant?

Since 1991, Australian regulations require RCD switches to protect power points and lighting in all new constructions and upgraded switchboards. However, pre-1991 homes may still be non-compliant. If your property was built before then or you are unsure, contact Web X Electricians Perth for RCD safety checks.

Why RCD Maintenance Matters

Like all electrical systems, RCD switches must be periodically serviced and tested to ensure proper function. Reasons include:

  • Switches can degrade over time and fail to trip when needed in an emergency. Our testing ensures instant shut-off.
  • Faulty RCD operation can also cause unwanted power loss in nonemergency situations. We verify reliability.
  • Periodic resets keep switches operating at peak performance to protect your family.
  • Visual inspections spot damaged or deteriorated switch hardware for preventative repairs or replacements.

RCDs Guard Against Electrical Dangers

RCD switches evaluate differences between the current entering and leaving circuits. When current leaks through damages or a person’s body to the ground, they instantly break the circuit.

Common Causes of RCD Tripping:

  • Unsafe conditions like damaged wiring or cords
  • Appliance faults allowing current to escape
  • Water immersing cords and entering circuits
  • People receiving shocks – RCDs shut off power flowing through you

When an RCD trips, it is doing its job to prevent disaster. Have Ken Hall Electricians investigate and restore your system’s safety.
