Upgrading your switchboard? Use the experts

The switchboard is the piece of electrical equipment that connects your home to the electrical grid. In other words, its super important! Which is why it’s important to keep your switchboard well maintained and safe!

Old switchboards can be a serious safety hazard. Besides the inconvenience of flickering lights, frequent outages and having to dig around in the dark for a spare fuse, older switchboard models that haven’t been properly maintained, and even some that have, can present a real fire safety risk.

If you’ve got faulty or exposed wiring, botchy ceramic fuses, or many of the other hallmarks of older switchboard models, you could be at risk of serious electrical issues.

Many older model switchboards simply aren’t designed to cope with the workload of a modern Sydney home. A lot of the appliances we now consider essentials simply didn’t exist when the switchboard was first installed!

Is your switchboard old and outdated?

Switchboards and fuse boxes play an important part in protecting your homes wiring and keeping the electricity in your house safe. Old fuse models made of ceramics, can be dangerous and just don’t meet today’s modern standards for switchboards. You can find some very useful information on the risks associated with switchboards and RCDs in this article about Residual Current Devices by Safework NSW.

If your property is over 25 years old, it’s especially important to update your switchboard if you haven’t done so already! These older homes are much less likely to have new models installed, leading to frequent power outages and the risk of fire or injury.

A relatively new addition to the switchboard is the safety switch! The safety switch is recommended by the NSW State Government for protecting your home. They’re even mandatory in most workplaces! Best practice means following this advice and installing a safety switch as soon as possible.

Why its time to upgrade your switchboard

The electrical industry has come a long way in electrical fitting design and safety in the past couple of decades, which is why a lot of older switchboards are now very outdated. Older models are prone to short circuiting, causing electric shocks, and present as a high fire hazard.

The electrical safety switch installed on modern switchboards ensures you’re at a far, far lower risk of an electric shock or other physical injury. The switch operates by cutting down the main power supply to your home as soon as it’s sensed a leakage, a surge, or a broken wire. A safety switch can shut off electricity in as little as 0.3 seconds. While fuses and circuit breakers protect against short circuits and current overloads, it’s the safety switch that defends from electric shock.

Of course, it’s important to upgrade your switchboard for other reasons too. While older models may have been enough for their time, homes back then had far fewer appliances and a much smaller power load as we were less reliant on digital technology. In order to keep up with the times, it’s important to update your switchboard. Appliances such as computers, air conditioning units, dryers and washing machines can be power hungry items, so ensure you’re not overloading your system by updating your switchboard.

Switchboard upgrades are also needed to fix flickering lights. It can be a real headache having a light vibrating off, on, and off again, especially when you’re trying to work or entertain guests! Flickering lights can be a symptom of a broader electrical fault, if changing the bulb does nothing, it’s time to call the switchboard experts.

If you’re experiencing frequent power outages, it’s probably down to an old, faulty board. These models were built for far fewer appliances, and don’t always cope with the high-power demands of the modern world! If you’re struggling to keep everything switched on without overloading your circuit, it might be time to upgrade your switchboard.
