Switchboard Upgrades & Installations Sydney | Alan Oxfords Plumbing Hills District

Higher Power Usage

As technology advances, our homes and businesses are requiring more electricity than ever before to keep them operational. Older switchboards however, were not designed to cope with our increased use of electricity. With this in mind, a switchboard upgrade will ensure that your switchboard is able to power your home or business at all times, without getting overloaded. 

Increased Safety

New switchboard installations offer a higher level of safety than older switchboards found in old homes and businesses. They feature inbuilt safety switches that reduce the risk of hazards occurring, such as fires, electrical shocks and blown fuses. Also, older switchboards may have ceramic fuses, which can be dangerous to replace, as well as Asbestos panelling which can be detrimental to our health.  

Non-compliant with Regulations

Electrical safety regulations have evolved over time. Older switchboards may no longer be compliant with current safety regulations and standards, deeming a switchboard upgrade necessary. 

Signs that you need a switchboard upgrade

A switchboard upgrade may be necessary if any of the following issues are occuring:

  • Blown Fuses - Fuses blowing on a regular basis.
  • Electric Shock - Experiencing electric shocks whilst plugging in appliances.
  • Electric Sparks - Electric sparks appear as appliances are plugged in.
  • Appliances keep Short-Circuiting - Older switchboards may not be able to cope with increased power usage, causing appliances to trip the power.
  • Flickering Lights - This can be a sign that the switchboard is damaged or wiring is loose.
  • Rewireable Fuses - New switchboard installations use circuit breakers, however older switchboards use rewireable fuses that contain copper, which becomes a safety hazard when the switchboard is overloaded.
