RCD testing services in Christchurch

Why RCD testing services in Christchurch are important

With regular professional RCD testing services in Christchurch, you, your staff or your workplace are kept safe from the dangers of electric shock. It’s another important way to ensure your home and work premises are protected against fire. Faulty electrical equipment is a major cause of fires.

You might be asking what are RCDs? Residual current devices (RCDs) are the industry term for what are commonly called safety switches. They’re small but crucial electrical devices that a qualified electrician installs in your switchboard. If you haven’t had one installed at your premises, then you need to get it happening ASAP.

RCDs detect electrical faults and once detected, instantly trip and cut the power off. They prevent electrical shocks and circuits from overheating and catching fire. You can see just how vital they are as safety measure and can prove to be a life saver.

An important thing to remember that, as with any other type of electrical equipment, RCDs can develop faults of their own. This is why testing RCDs is so important.

This specialised testing needs to be performed by a fully trained professional.
