RCD’s ( Residual Current Device) are the best electrical device since sliced bread when it comes to consumer protection in my opinion.
As many New Zealand’s RCD-protected homes continue to increase, the existing and these additional RCD protected homes and installations are expected to save at least two lives every year and will probably prevent more than ten injuries in the same time caused by people accidentally coming into contact with live parts.
This additional RCD roll out and protection may also reduce property loss that can be caused by electrical faults up to and probably more than $3.5 million per year.
But disregarding the above I believe myself if anyone uses electricity whether it is in a home or outside in the garage or even just if their are children in the home then RCD protection is like a life raft for your home and a MUST have!
Although you probably will never need it but in that one instance that you do you will be so very glad you have them.
If you are unsure if you have the latest minimum protection on your fuse-board/circuit breaker board then contact us for an inspection.
