To protect you from electrical shock or in some cases, fire, RCDs monitors the flow of electricity in your home. If there’s a fault, the RCD will trip to cut off the electricity supply to the circuit. These safety devices are crucial in any home or business, and if you’re thinking of installing or modifying a circuit, they are also a legal requirement under the Building Regulations (Part P).
Installing an RCD involves working with your home’s wiring and electricity, so we strongly recommend asking a Part P qualified electrician to help. They’ll turn off the main power before mounting the RCD and connecting the incoming cables to the terminals. Once they’ve secured the connections, they’ll turn the power back on and test the device. If they spot any faults, they’ll adjust and tweak their handiwork to make sure everything is in order before they go.
If you’re thinking of installing an RCD, you probably want to get it done as quickly as possible. And that means finding a tradesperson that’s local to you. With hundreds of professionals on our platform, we can match you with a Part P qualified electrician in your area in minutes.
You can coordinate diaries and decide on a date that suits you both. Your electrician won’t have to drive far, so there’s no need to factor in travelling costs and you can book them for emergencies and any other non-urgent jobs too. They’re also fully up to date with national regulations. It’s never been easier to find a reliable Local Hero.
