Why RCD testing services in Wellington are vital

With regular RCD testing services in Wellington from experts you will know that you, your employees and your workplace are safe from electric shock. It’s these specialised testing services that help ensure your home and work premises are protected against faulty electrical equipment and the fire danger they present. A high number of fires in New Zealand are caused by faulty equipment. Having that protection is too important to miss.

Not everyone is familiar with the term RCDs and what exactly they are. They are more commonly called safety switches but the industry term is Residual Current Devices (RCDs). These are small and important electrical devices which only a qualified electrician can install in your switchboard.

If you haven’t had an RCD installed at your place, then do it as soon as possible.

How do RCDs work?

RCDs have the ability to detect even minor electrical faults and once detected, they instantly trip and cut the power off. It’s the safest way to prevent both electrical shocks and circuits from overheating and catching fire. You can see how important they are as safety measure and a proven lifesaving measure.

There is one other crucial thing to know and that is, as with any other type of electrical equipment, RCDs can develop faults of their own. This is why testing RCDs is vital.

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