Difference Between Circuit Breakers And Safety Switches.

Circuit breakers are a vital part of every switchboard within domestic homes. They serve to protect the electrical circuits and appliances from overloads, short circuiting and potential hazards.

They play a crucial role in preventing further damage to equipment, fires and ensuring safety to the premises.

Safety switches, also known as RCD’s or RCBOS differ by preventing electric shocks to the occupant. The primary function is to monitor flow of electric current and quickly disconnect the power supply when it detects any imbalance or leakage of current.

Safety switches are usually installed on circuits that are most prone to potential hazards, such as power outlets, lighting circuits, and areas where water or moisture may be present, like bathrooms and kitchens. In Melbourne safety switches are mandated by regulations to ensure a higher level of electrical safety in your home.
Safety switches protect YOU.

    I've requested a service call about Braemar heater warranty. The service engineer came the next day, 20 minutes of work and voila, everything works, under warranty. Very professional, fast, nice and polite. I suppose, this is how service industry should look like 🙂

    Easy to deal with, good communication. Got the cooler fixed pretty quickly and similarly the service of the heater. Only thing I would have liked, was for the attendant to take off his shoes when inside my home. I have a crawling toddler so very conscious of keeping my floors clean.

    Really excellent service. I use them for all my evaporative cooling servicing and warranty repairs (I'm still under the 7 year warranty). Initially had an appointment for next week, but they called me back and managed to fit me in to a next day service. The serviceman was also really professional, friendly and knowledgeable.
