What is a safety switch and why should you install one?

A electrical safety switch is an essential component for electricity which can be used to ensure safety when using electronic devices in your home. Quickly interrupting an electrical circuit to prevent electric shock, these devices can cut power output in just 0.3 seconds.

Serving as a crucial barrier between your body and electrical shock, they work by picking up small differences in electrical currents. This sort of activity indicates that electricity is being directed improperly and could potentially cause harm. In NSW, safety switches are mandatory in all buildings and must be added if not present, should alterations of extensions be made to an existing structure. 

What are your options for safety switches?

When choosing a safety switch, you have 3 options:

  • Portable units, which are ideal for portable power tools and extension cords.
  • Power point units, which can be integrated into a single power point, rendering circuit protection for a single unit.
  • Switchboard units, which are installed on the main electric switchboard and give full or selected circuit protection. 

 

Safety switches vs fuses & circuit breakers 

Safety switches and fuse/circuit breakers serve completely different purposes. Safety switches are installed into a switchboard and used as a safeguard to protect people from electrical shock, working alongside circuit breakers. 

Circuit breakers or fuses designed to cut power off when the electrical wiring has too much current passing through, which could potentially heat the wires of appliances and cause an electrical fire. Safety switches should be present in every home and shield wiring and appliances in your property – not people, like safety switches.

How much does it cost to install a safety switch?

Depending on your electrical setup, the our safety switch installation cost for service may vary. Offering competitive, upfront pricing, whether you’re experiencing an emergency or looking to plan ahead, Overhead Electrical is happy to assist you. Our prices range from $1000 – $5000 depending on the installation at hand.

Maintaining your safety switch

After installing your safety switch, it’s easy to forget it’s even there. However, regular maintenance is crucial to ensure it is still working properly. There are a few things you can do on your own to check the maintenance of your safety switch, including:

  • Check the meter box where the safety switch is located and make sure it is clean and free from moisture.
  • Manually reset or trip your safety switch every 6 months.
