Is it time for a switchboard upgrade in Melbourne? Protect your home and family by choosing the experienced and qualified Melbourne electricians at Precision Electrical & Plumbing.
If your home has old switchboards, you may need to upgrade them to allow for a greater current flow capacity. By upgrading your switchboard, you’ll reduce the risk of your electrical appliances being damaged by an overflow of electrical current.
But, this job is best left to the professionals, such as our trained electricians. For the best switchboard upgrades in Melbourne, contact Precision Electrical And Plumbing for commercial and residential electrical services such as a switchboard upgrade.
A switchboard is like the heart of your electrical system. It distributes power to different parts of your home or office, and ensuring it’s always in good condition is important. You may need to have an electrical switchboard upgrade if you notice the following signs:
A faulty switchboard can be extremely dangerous and can even lead to electrical fires. So, give our Melbourne emergency electricians a call if you notice any of these signs.
From safety to government regulations, there are several reasons why you might want to upgrade your switchboard.
Firstly, you’ll need to upgrade your switchboard to accommodate smart meters and solar power since older boards don’t support these facilities. An upgraded switchboard allows them to work properly without any electrical short-circuit risk.
Secondly, newer switchboards include safety switches, which are essential to your home’s electrical safety. By upgrading the board, you’ll reduce the chances of an electric shock to nearly zero.
And lastly, an upgraded switchboard will manage voltage fluctuations better, minimising the chance of tripping circuit breakers. Unexpected power surges can happen, and a new switchboard will protect your circuit breakers from them.
The government has mandated that only certified electricians in Melbourne can upgrade switchboards. With official regulations in mind, our trained professional will ask you a few questions about your existing switchboards. These involve the age of your home and wiring, the state of your lights and appliances and past issues with the fuses.
Once our technicians have the necessary information, they will begin upgrading. We will begin by restricting your home’s power to the main electrical board and removing old fuses and protection devices. After this, pole enclosures, circuit breakers and RCDs will be installed in your home as necessary.
Our local electrician will connect the circuits to a circuit breaker and RCD combination breakers per the electrical standards. To cap off the process, they will inspect your Main Earthed Neutral and finish the upgrades by performing electrical tests to ensure your safety. The process can take up to four hours, depending on the complexity of the project at hand.
Old switchboards can be a major fire hazard. If you have an old or damaged switchboard, a professional must replace it as soon as possible.
A new switchboard will help protect your property from electrical hazards and ensure your devices have an adequate power supply.
