Install RCDs

If you’ve been experiencing power stoppages or fuses blowing in your home, there could be underlying problems that can put your family’s lives at risk of electrocution. Power stoppages or fuses blowing could be caused by an imbalanced flow of electricity from your main switchboard. If you are experiencing this, there are a number of reasons for it to occur, but it may likely be caused from not having RCD’s correctly installed in your home.

Legal Requirements

Since 2009 in Western Australia it is a legal requirement that all homes must have at least two RCDs installed, to protect your power points and lighting circuits through their cut-off function, however some older homes may not have them installed at all. If you have recently discovered that your new home or rented property doesn’t have RCDs installed, you should immediately call the professionals to perform the installation.

In Western Australia, penalties of up to $15,000 for individuals and $100,000 for body corporate applies if there is breaches of regulations, and always remember that electrical work in Perth and WA always requires completion to be carried out by licensed professionals.
