Safety Switches Are Essential to Protect You and Your Family
Every home needs quality safety switches fitted by a professional electrician in Brisbane. These smart pieces of equipment will monitor electricity flowing through a circuit and if any leakage is detected, the power will be shut off automatically in milliseconds. This type of thing happens if an electrical appliance or power point has a fault.
A Safety Switch Can Even Save Lives
It’s recommended to have safety switches fitted throughout your home to cover each circuit. One safety switch is not enough; you can still get an electric shock from another circuit with no safety switch. Some places to install safety switches are;
- Power points
- Air conditioning
- Hot water
- Pool equipment and circuits
If you notice one electrical appliance repeatedly causing the safety switch to flick, this should be checked by a professional, call the team a Rob Martin Electrical. Do not touch a faulty appliance while the electricity is still on.
The Difference Between Circuit Breakers and Safety Switches
Circuit breakers and safety switches work differently. A circuit breaker quickly cuts power when there is a fault or high current overload. A safety switch shuts down the electricity supply when a leakage to earth is detected. Safety switches are essential to protect people and circuit breakers protect wiring.
