You can rest assured that your upgraded switchboard with the latest safety switches will provide optimum safety from potential electrical faults.

Your switchboard or fuse box upgrade will be safe and compliant to current regulatory Australian Standards.

Many older properties and installations are not designed to keep up with the demands of today. This can lead to problems as the switchboard equipment is simply out-dated. The performance of your electrical system and appliances is very much reliant on the switchboard providing adequate power for them to run as required.

All current switchboard installations are done with circuit breakers and residual current devices (RCD’s). This allows for easier restoration of power when a circuit is tripped due to an overload or fault as well as providing the latest protection against electrocution.

Not sure if you need an upgrade? If you are experiencing any of the following, then it’s likely you need to consider an upgrade.

  • Can you see ceramic fuses in your switch board?
  • Do you have any Residual Current Devices (RCD’s/safety switch) installed?
  • Does your power tend to trip if you run more than a couple of kitchen appliances at the same time?
  • Can you see old, cracked or frayed cables in your switchboard?

If you said “Yes” to any of these questions and “No” to the second question referring to RCD’s, then its likely you need a switchboard upgrade.
