You should have one installed in your house, but do you know what your RCD should do? Having a basic understanding of the role of your RCD is essential for ensuring your home and family are adequately protected.

RCDs (Residual Current Devices) help protect your home. In the case of a faulty appliance or wiring, these little devices will disconnect the power to help reduce the chance of someone getting an electrical shock.

Not all homes have adequate RCDs installed so it’s best to get a licensed electrician assess your switchboard to ensure it is offering adequate protection for your household.

If we’re already attending your home for a project, we offer a free switchboard assessment. To book a project with Derek, contact 0407 522 678.
