Have you ever tripped a circuit in your home, suddenly losing all power to one particular area of the house? That isn’t a problem and means that everything is working great! The circuit is broken by your home’s trusty Residual Current Circuit Breaker (RCCB) or Residual Current Device (RCD) as a result of detecting an imbalance in the currents through your electrical wiring.

If the power going out is greater than the power coming back, it knows that electricity is being leaked and will immediately stop the electrical current from flowing in order to stop it. If your house doesn’t have an RCCB or RCD, though, then you’ve likely never experienced a circuit trip. You can ask a professional for help and easily get an RCCB or RCD installed as a part of an electrical repair, making it possible for electrical imbalances in the wiring to be quickly and easily detected!
