RCD Protection

What is a Residual current device or RCD?

An RCD is a residual current device. It is a safety device that is used in electrical installations to protect against the risks of electrocution and fire. RCDs are designed to break the circuit if they detect an imbalance between the live and neutral wires. This can happen if there is a fault in the electrical installation or if someone comes into contact with a live wire. RCDs can save lives by preventing electrocutions and fires.

Do I need to have an RCD?

Most domestic consumer units will have an RCD fitted as standard. RCDs are designed to protect against electrical shocks and fires by quickly disconnecting the power if there is a fault. If your consumer unit does not have an RCD, it is worth considering having one fitted.

Are RCDs expensive to fit?

An RCD  is a life-saving device that is fitted to your electrical circuits. They are not expensive to install, and could save your life.
