No. It's against the law for anyone other than a qualified electrician to perform any wiring work. Even if this work is carried out according to industry standards, it won't meet certification - which doesn't bode well if you need to sell your property. Make sure you only hire a qualified professional, such as those on the Ralph Ottmann Electrical team, to perform all your wiring. You'll ensure the safety of your property, family and friends in addition to your own.
In normal power circuits, a current traveling to an appliance returns through the neutral wire. If your circuit is defective or compromised, the electricity can travel to earth through a person who comes in contact with the appliance. This can lead to serious injury or even death.
Safety switches work to detect a power loss from the circuit and take as little as 30 milliseconds to cut the electrical supply. This rapid response time is important, as it's faster than a heartbeat's critical section and greatly reduces the devastating impacts of potential injury or death.
Safety switches protect people from accidents, while circuit breakers conserve wiring and electrical systems. Safety switches activate when they sense a potential electrical shock about to occur. In contrast, circuit breakers cut the power when they detect a fault with the current or an overload, often caused by multiple appliances going into a single outlet.
In this way, it prevents electrocution or fire. It's important you have combined circuit breaker safety switches on your property, to make sure you, your family, and your appliances will be protected at all times.
