Switchboard Installation and Upgrade
You could be at serious risk of injury if your home’s switchboard isn’t up to modern standards. Any misfiring is a major concern. Why? The switchboard controls the flow of power throughout your home. As a result, any issues could lead to electric shock, fire, or worse.
You may need a switchboard installation or upgrade if:
- Your current model has outdated rewireable fuses instead of Australian standard circuit breakers
- The existing switchboard does not have appropriate safety switches
- Electrical system overloads cause regular power outages
- The wiring looks overcrowded and poses a fire risk
Old household switchboards pose the greatest risk. They offer less protection against high voltage frequencies. Often, they do not meet modern regulations and standards. Upgrading to a new electric meter box with approved circuit breakers and safety switches ensures the safety of your home.
