Circuit Breakers and Safety Switches
Metropolitan Electrical Contractors know all about circuit breakers. We source, install or replace the circuit breakers that are appropriate for your home. Circuit breakers differ from safety switches in that they are only designed to prevent electrical fires. Safety switches also prevent electrocution.
Metropolitan’s fully qualified and licensed electricians have the experience and training to know which sort of circuit breaker is best for your circumstances and whether it needs to be upgraded to a safety switch. In many parts of the country RCD or Residual Current Device safety switches must be installed on certain circuits. They work by breaking the electrical circuit to prevent electric shocks and serious harm. This provides added protection when using electrical devices. The use of RCD safety switches has become compulsory in many parts of Australia. So when replacing a faulty circuit breaker, you may be obliged to put in an RCD safety switch.
