Switchboard Replacement

Old and inadequate electrical switchboards can be dangerous. They offer less protection against high voltage frequencies which can damage your valuable appliances. The switchboard controls the flow of power throughout your home. Any issues could lead to electric shock or fire.

You may need a switchboard installation or upgrade if:

  • Your current model has outdated porcelain fuses with wire
  • 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 fuse boards pose the greatest risk . Often, they no longer 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.

We provide a range of switchboard services and repairs, including a recommended and certified assessment every 18 months. This preventative electrical maintenance extends the life and provides added safety.

Electric Switchboard Upgrade

A new electric switchboard clearly organises the various electrical circuits in your home. It does away with the clutter of circuits that have been added over the years to your old switchboard and arranges things so that a look into the switchboard is not so confusing anymore.

Better than that, any old fashioned fuses are replaced with circuit breakers or safety switches. Both of these devices can be easily switched back on after they are tripped. The difference between them is that circuit breakers protect against fire and safety switches are designed to both prevent an electric shock or electrocution and guard against fire. Circuit breakers can be upgraded to safety switches if your priority is keeping your family safe.

FAQs - The Big Questions About Switchboards

What's the sitch on switchboards? Find out at below thanks to Metropolitan.

A switchboard is an electrical control panel which controls the flow of power throughout your home. First, it receives the main current supply in bulk. Then, it divides electricity up into smaller, safer amounts which are used by your appliances and devices.

Power meters distribute electricity from one electrical source to another. They are the central hub of your home’s power. They consist of one or more panes. Each has a switch that interrupts or redirects the flow of electricity supplied by your energy provider.

Fuses and switches allow a person to operate it without fear of electrocution. In order to work, the energy going in must equal the energy going out.

Switchboards divide the main current into smaller chunks which are directed to devices. These devices include transformers, panels and other devices which distribute power more evenly.

Any faults could pose a serious injury risk or even a fire risk to your home. Therefore it’s important to upgrade before failure or injury. Warning signs include:

  • Flickering lights
  • Short-circuiting appliances
  • Rewireable fuses instead of circuit breakers
  • Wiring looks overcrowded
  • No safety switch
  • Fuse board backing panel contains asbestos

Electrical upgrades must be carried out by licensed electricians to meet Australian Electrical Standards.
