Protection for you, your family and your home

I really believe that the RCD has been a ground-breaking invention in the electrical industry. Basically speaking an RCD is fitted to a consumer unit (fuse box) and if anything were to malfunction such as a kettle, washing machine or hairdryer then the RCD would activate within less than a second and cut the power!
Potentially this could well save your life, your home and the wellbeing of your family. I always recommend my clients have an RCD fitted as it really does give you peace of mind. RCD’s save several lives every year in UK households and contribute to fewer house fires.
There have been electrical regulations around for years requiring an RCD to be fitted to consumer units, but as I have seen so many times during my travels around Oldham, Manchester and Stockport this hasn’t been happening. The good news is, all the consumer units we fit are the new 17th edition consumer units, which are the latest in consumer units and come with a Duel RCD fitted as standard, and not as an optional extra. They are also constructed of non-combustible materials.RCD
If your home has an older style consumer unit, I would recommend you consult a qualified electrician to carry out an electrical inspection in your home. Over the years these older style consumer units have been added to, causing them to become overloaded and are therefore offering you little or no electrical protection. I’m afraid you won’t be aware of this, as for now everything will appear to be working well.
So if you ever find that your electricity is not working, it may be that your RCD has “tripped”. This indicates a problem and it has done this to protect you , your family and your home. Tyry and reset it, but if it wont. It’s time to call upon the services of a qualified local electrician such as SCZ Electrical Services
