Why you should get an electrician to install an RCD

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.
