Protect your home with Safety Switches

What is a Safety Switch or Residual Current Device (RCD)?

Safety switches are essential for your electrical safety when using all electrical appliances. They are a vital safeguard which protect users from getting electric shocks. RCDs and safety switches closely monitor the electric current and shut down within seconds if there’s a sudden change.

Safety switches reduce the danger of electric shocks and increase your safety in the home and workplace. However, a safety switch only protects the circuit it is installed on, therefore it is important to contact a licensed electrician to ensure safety switches are installed on every circuit like hot water, pool, or air conditioning as well as the power point circuit.

Circuit Breakers are not the same as Safety Switches

Many people get confused about circuit breakers and safety switches. While circuit breakers, fuses and surge protectors protect electrical wiring and appliances, safety switches are designed to protect people. A safety switch is essential to maximise your protection and give you the sense of security you need.

If you are unsure about the safety switches installed in your Gold Coast home, give us a call and we will be happy to help.
