Safety Switch Installs

Are you sure you are protected from electrical shocks in your house? Safety switches are a cost-effective and convenient addition to your switchboard, and they are the minimum safety standard throughout Australia.

These switches are now a legal requirement in rental properties. At Rise Up Electrical, we can integrate them into your existing switchboard or install them as part of a switchboard upgrade.

How does a safety switch work?

Safety switches have been available for decades, and these small life-saving devices are also known as residual current devices (RCD). They prevent electrical shocks caused by problems such as a short circuit.

A safety switch simply measures the current going into a circuit, such as the cables leading to a power socket, and compares it to the current going out of it. If both measurements match, the safety switch does nothing. In fact, you will never know the device has done any work at all.

Currents not matching means there is a leak in the circuit. The leak may not be dangerous, but the safety switch will ‘trip’ and cut off supply to the area, just in case. Most of the time, current is lost through an appliance or a fault in a cable. However, if something is truly amiss, this simple switch prevents a more serious electrical shock.

Isn’t that the same as a circuit breaker?

Not quite, is the answer. Rather than highlighting a loss of current circuit breakers detect an overload in a system. Once this overcurrent is reached, the circuit breaker trips. It prevents further damage and fire but cannot save you from an electric shock.

Why Choose Rise Up Electrical

What causes a safety switch to trip?

Every house is different, and even professionally installed and well cared-for electrical fittings might have a few common problems. These include:

  • Water leaking from a roof or window into power sockets and light fittings
  • Pests like possums and termites chewing through wires
  • Faulty wiring in older buildings or simply household appliances failing

What’s more, you can easily test your safety switches simply by pressing a button. We recommend that you test your switches at least twice a year.

From booking online to the completion of the job was seamless. Ben arrived super quick and was the utmost professional and really new his stuff. He took the time to explain what the problem was and what he was going to do.

Very happy customer! I can't thank Ben, Fouad & Bradley enough for fixing an electrical fault (and dodgy wiring from times gone by) to make my home safer (as well as installing some additional points, tidying up some others and installing new interconnected smoke alarms).

Always use this Service as they are always reliable, give a full explanation of work needed, and do a great job. Highly recommended. Many thanks to Ben who did the work.

Great experience, they actually turned up when they said they would. The guy took the time to look for leaks other than the obvious one, and found them. Saving us a return visit. Pricing is fair. Would definitely recommend.
