The Importance of Safety Switches

Have you protected your home with professionally installed Safety switches?

Safety switches are designed to prevent electric shock and save lives. They monitor the flow of electricity through a circuit and routinely shut off the electricity supply when an imbalance is detected in a circuit.

Our KNP Perth Electricians are frequently told by customers that they are unsure of why they need a safety switch when they have circuit breakers installed? The answer to this is- because safety switches will save your life while the circuit breakers will save your home.

Some of the most common causes of safety switches being activated are:

  • Faults in Electrical Wiring
  • Disrupting wiring such as hammering nails into walls
  • Faulty Appliances
  • Bugs and termites tripping circuits due to entering power sockets
  • Rodents eating your wiring
  • Water entering outside power sockets, lights or your roof and damaging your wiring

All of the above are everyday occurrences in residential home and without a safety switch installed, safety of your family and occupants are at risk.

Often people ask which circuits need a safety switch installed?

Our Professional Perth Electricians suggest to have a safety switch installed on your power circuit and ensure there is one installed on the lighting circuit., Lighting circuits are a hidden danger zone of rodents and rain damage so ensure you call your local Residential Perth Electrician to aid your with safety switches and electrical wiring.
