Switchboard Upgrade and Repair

 

Switchboard Upgrade and Repair

Our team of Master electricians can carry out all of your electrical switchboard wiring and switchboard upgrades to your home or commercial property.
Older style buildings and homes that have rewire-able fuses pose a much higher risk of having an electrical fire occur. They also increase the risk of electrical shock. All modern switchboard installations have mandatory electrical safety switches installed, under the Queensland law. Safety Switches act when an electrical fault occurs and will isolate the circuit immediately.

If you are installing new appliances or having renovation work carried out in your home we would recommend you have your current switchboard assessed for an upgrade, repair or installation of new switchboard to prevent overloading.

Why would you need an electrical switchboard upgrade?
Older style switchboards with ceramic rewire-able fuses are designed to cater for a couple of household appliances. When these fuse boxes were installed homes had a fridge, washing machine and oven. Modern houses have so many more appliances in use every day that the old switchboards are now potential fire hazards due to overloading.

Because of this overburdening of the switchboards these homes and businesses experience frequent power outs and tripping.
If you have added an extension to your home or business the current electrical switchboard may need to be upgraded to cope with the added needs. Even if your extension has only added lights and a few extra power points this could be enough to exceed the switchboard limits.

Renovations such as a kitchen or entertainment room could add extra stress to your electrical switchboard. Newer appliances and electrical equipment can draw more power and add to the demands of your fuse box.
Often older electrical switchboards are not fitted with electrical safety switches.

Rewiring

Another possible reason for unreliable or intermittent power supply could be older wiring in your home.  We can assess the reliability of your current wiring and perform any rewiring work to bring your home up to a reliable and safe working standard, reducing the risk of fire and electrocution.
