Switchboard Upgrades

Your switchboard is the backbone of your electrical system, responsible for delivering power to every part of your home. Did you know that outdated switchboards can pose serious risks to your family’s safety.

That’s why upgrading your switchboard is an essential step towards ensuring your home is safe and compliant with Australian standards. If your home is over 25 years old, it’s quite possible that your switchboard is outdated and in need of an upgrade.

How do I know if I need to upgrade my switchboard?

There are many signs you may not notice that indicate your switchboard needs upgrading, including wiring and cables that don’t meet safety standards, audible buzzing noises coming from your current switchboard, meter installed on timber or asbestos panels or old ceramic fuse is used rather than safety circuit breakers.

Ignoring these signs can put you and your home at risk of electrical fires or electrocution. If your switchboard is outdated or your fuse board is still giving you issues, call us now to make sure your current switchboard is safe.

These functionalities provide added convenience, protection, and energy efficiency, allowing you to have better control over your electrical system.

Frequently asked questions

What should I look for in a switchboard upgrade?
There are several factors you need to look out for such as circuit capacity, voltage, the amount of space and type of enclosure needed. Be sure to consult with us to determine which type and system is best suited for your needs.
Who can upgrade my switchboard?
When installing, replacing or upgrading a 3-phase switchboard, it is mandatory to require a level 2 ASP electrician. Older properties are more likely to have an asbestos panel, which is potentially hazardous. As a Level 2 Electrician, we know how to safely remove it and upgrade it to a modern switchboard.

Level 2 electrical work is not something to be taken lightly, not upgrading your switchboard can impact the amount of power going to the property and also reduce the risk of electrical fire due to overheating of cables.

Have to say it's rare to come across any companies such as selectrical services these days. Their custom service is excellent and backed with prompt service. They would text you to inform when their electrician would arrive. When they promise something, they would keep their promise. We had really good experience having them to carry out electrical work.
