Older electrical systems and switchboards can pose a serious threat of electrocution and/or can lead to fire hazards in your home or business.
To ensure your family are safe, it is recommended that you upgrade your electrical system and switchboard so that your home or business is compliant with the latest standards and regulations. Your switchboard is your main electrical distributor that feeds your main switch and each individual safety switch or fuse. Contact us today for more information on your switchboard upgrade.
Here are some more reasons why you should upgrade your switchboard:
Electrical Safety - Ageing switchboards or fuse boxes don’t provide the same electrical safety protections for homes than what a modern system does
Fire Hazards - Old wiring that has not been checked for some time may come loose over time causing arcing which can lead to overheating or fire
Safety Switches / RCD’s - are required by law due to the life saving protection they provide. By Upgrading your switchboard, you will have further protection for your family from electrocution.
Electrical Capacity - With all of the home appliances which most homes have these days, older switchboards do not have the capacity to keep up leading to overheating, tripping and increased fire risk.
Experiencing regular short circuits - if the power trips out regularly this is a clear sign something is wrong with your electrical systems
