Switchboard Upgrades

Is your switchboard up to current standards?

With the rise in renovation TV shows more and more homeowners are taking the plunge to modernize their older style homes. One major factor that often gets overlooked by renovations is the switchboard upgrades.

How can our electricians help today?

Why upgrade my switchboard?

The demands for electricity are higher now than ever before. Tablets, big screen TV’s, microwaves, computers and other types of electrical equipment are constantly plugged into power sources throughout the home. All of this demanded power is provided and regulated by your current switchboard.

Simply put, modern power demands require a modern switchboard to meet those demands. Using an inadequate switchboard can result in electrical problems such as electrical faults and electrical shocks. The risk of electrical fires is dramatically increased compared to that of a modern switchboard.

What is involved in upgrading a switchboard?

When you have your switchboard upgraded you will have safety switches installed on all circuits for added personal safety. The circuit breakers will also need to be replaced with modern breakers that can handle heavier energy loads. Fuse boxes will be swapped out and thicker gauge wire that is more suited will be installed.

All of the work that we provide to your home in relation to switchboard upgrades will meet and exceed any and all Australian Standards.
