Melbourne’s older homes mostly have age-old wiring systems and now-obsolete fuse boards which function poorly to provide enough power supply to today’s latest home devices. Porcelain fuse boards are rarely equipped with electrical safety switches. The risk of electrical fire is much higher and the standard of the homes electrical safety is greatly reduced.

Modern and correctly functioning switchboards and fuse boxes play a significant role in protecting your home wiring. The majority of older fuse boards and switchboards have rewirable fuses which are made from ceramic.
These are dangerous & don’t comply with safety standards.

Switchboard UpgradesIf your home still has a ceramic fuse box with rewirable fuses in the meter box or an electrical switchboard then it has passed its use by date, and your switchboard is possibly an electrical hazard.

Today’s current homes and switchboards are fitted with automatic trip circuit breakers and safety switches which cut the electricity supply when there is an electrical fault. This can save your appliances, it can protect your electrical cables from catching on fire and most importantly save a life from electrocution.

No matter what type of property your home is, a reliable circuit breaker switchboard installed for your house, unit, townhouse or apartment offers perfect peace of mind to live life safe and sound.

Why are switchboard upgrades necessary for your household?

  • Outdated switchboards are highly prone to short-circuits and overload.
  • Their fuses are more unreliable and harmful as they tend to catch fire and spread quickly and easily.
  • There is greater chance of personal electrical shock with older boards.
  • The electrical safety switch, available these days with latest switchboards, ensures that you do not get electric shock or no serious physical damage occurs due to a fire breakout.
  • An electrical safety switch shuts down the main power supply as soon as it senses the slightest hint of any power leakage from a broken wire, switch or faulty appliance.
  • Only just a few decades ago, your household was not furnished with tons of electrical appliances or devices. In past days, just a heater, chimney, dish washer, refrigerator and oven used to do it all. Quality switchboard installations were not required.
  • In today’s age you have computers, coolers, vacuum cleaners, ducted vacuum systems, home theatres, high end audio equipment, dryers, washing machines, stereos, fitness equipment, microwaves, pumps, wine cellars, central room temperature controlling system and many more.

Do you have confidence that your old switches will be able to tackle such a huge power supply?

  • If you experience lights that flicker all the time.
  • If you experience fuses that blow from time to time.
  • If you experience power outages.
  • If you experience frequent power tripping.
  • Older boards are designed to supply power to a small number of kitchen or household appliances, not to the numerous ones you have bought and added to your home over the years.
  • If you experience heat coming from your fuse board.
  • Loose electrical terminals and poor connections create a hot spot which can lead to an electrical fire.
  • If you experience any of the above its most likely that your electrical equipment is crying out for switchboard upgrades.
