RCDs and Smoke Detectors

RCDs save lives, that's why from 2009 it became law that all home sellers and landlords needed to install at least two RCDs to protect all lighting and power circuits.

RCDs are a safety device that monitors the flow of electricity in the home, if there is an imbalance, this will cause the RCD to trip almost instantaneously. Usually this will trip before anyone touches a faulty device, however the speed of the device is designed so that if the imbalance is caused by a human touch, it will react quickly enough to protect your life.

Any problems with the RCD not tripping or resetting is something you need to rectify.

Call us to discuss your options.

We can also test the RCD using a special meter that measures the exact current that causes the device to trip and can pinpoint exactly to the millisecond how quickly it shuts down the power.
