Safety Switches

Safety Switches

Safety First: The Importance of Residual Current Devices

 

Safety switches are vital devices that every household needs to protect themselves from electrical accidents. A safety switch is a device that turns off the electricity whenever there is a fault detected. It is designed for the purpose of preventing damages that can occur from the result of electric shocks. Think of instances such as faulty appliances, or children playing with sockets, or even just lack of basic maintenance.

 

These are all examples of when residents can suffer from electrical shock and potentially affect houses by blowing up the switchboard, or damage the wiring. If you need to ensure the protection of your home and family from electrical accidents, check that you have a safety switch installed in your property as soon as you can.

 

There are different types that can be put in place, with each offering a different layer of protection. Safety switches can only be installed by a licensed electrician. If you are living in Sydney, and need assistance with installing or maintaining safety switches, call Electrician To The Rescue and we would be more than happy to help.

 

Safety Switches – A Must Have for Homes and Businesses

 

Safety switches are also known as Residual Current Devices (or ’RCDs’). The importance of the RCD has been ratified into NSW Workplaces legislation, where it is essential for all workplaces to install a safety switch for each powerpoint. This law was passed in February 2014 in order to protect employees of organisations from serious injury or electric shocks.

 

Electrical shocks can occur anytime, from a variety of problems. Reports indicate that a lot of causes can be traced back to faulty appliances in the household, which can trigger charge in electricity and therefore cause shocks when the appliance is mishandled. There have also been issues with children playing with power outlets, where their fascination outweighs their understanding of the danger that could arise. This is why that all residential properties in NSW require at least one RCD in the lighting and power circuits, to ensure a minimal level of protection.

 

Installing a safety switch prevents a whole host electrical problems relating to current and power surges. It is a multi-layered method of protection that could save your home from damage to your property and avoid your family being at risk of electrocution. Our electrician in Sydney is fully experienced at this type of service, and installation of safety switches is backed by a 100% lifetime labour warranty for your peace of mind.

 

We Can Install Your Safety Switch in a Flash!

 

A lot of houses and properties built prior to 1977 are highly unlikely to have had RCDs installed during their construction. That’s why there are still many households in Sydney that are unfamiliar with the need for RCDs and what type of device is best suited to install in their property.

SMOKE ALARM INSTALLATION

 

Did you know that there are around 11,000 house fires recorded in Australia every year? It is a minimum requirement that you have at least one smoke alarm installed per floor of your home. However the NSW Fire Brigade recommend that you also install them outside all sleeping areas and inside all bedrooms.

 

They may only be small, but that little disc on the ceiling could well save your life one day! They are designed not only to detect a fire, but ensure that they alert everyone in your home before the fire takes a hold, so that you and your family can call emergency services and make a safe escape.

 

There are two main types of smoke alarms that detect residential fires in different ways:

 

Ionisation smoke alarms – This type of smoke alarm can effectively “smell” the smoke from a fire, which makes them better at detecting fast flaming fires, however, they may be slower to detect slow burning fires.

 

Photoelectric – Effectively, this type of smoke alarm can “see” smoke before it bursts into flames. This makes them more effective detectors of slow burning or smouldering fires as they can detect smoke from a house fire earlier than Ionisation smoke detectors. If an electrical fire has started in the home (which are caused by appliances or overloaded circuits), these extra minutes can prove to be lifesaving because at this stage of the fire, air is still breathable and visbility may not be affected.

 

Smoke alarms save lives, so keep you and your family safe. Our Sydney based electricians install smoke alarms in a flash and can provide expert advice about smoke alarm safety, so call us today on 1800 893 218.
