Switchboard Upgrades Gold Coast
Is your switchboard up to standard?
Attention property owners of residential and/or commercial use. If you haven’t checked the state of your switchboard recently, one of our licensed electricians at Powertrip Electrical Services can come for an inspection at your earliest convenience. Whether you are moving to a new home or have occupied your current residence for many years, the old switchboard on the property may not meet the national standards in new regulations. Not only that, but the risk of fire and/or property damage might be higher than you think.
Many homes still use old-style fuse switchboards as part of their electric systems. Unfortunately, these switchboard types are known to cause electric faults that cause hundreds of home and office fires across the country every year. Australian government is constantly updating electrical usage laws that we all must comply with because they make sure that electricity usage is safer, and that the likelihood of fires is reduced. Current law says that all switchboards and electrical systems be replaced and upgraded to the Australian Standard AS3000. Upgrading your switchboard from time to time is also important to save you money and prevent property damage because an outdated model can cause dangerous faults. Read more below to understand why you might need a switchboard upgrade and how we will take care of it for you…
What is a switchboard and why it needs upgrading?
The electric box in your home or commercial property that has various switches inside it is connected to wiring and circuits that power all the appliances and sockets on the premises. The panel inside this box is called a switchboard and it is a device that directs electricity from sources of supply to many smaller outlets of usage constantly. Older switchboard models have equipment that doesn’t insulate heat very well or have the capacity to control surges in any of the circuits. This is dangerous because these models are not equipped to protect the systems and appliances connected to itagainst shock or other potential fault conditions.Unfortunately, if you have one of these models, they are just not designed to keep up with the requirements of modern electricity. The modern standards for switchboards are not only regulation compliant but can increase efficiency and safety on your property. Commercial property electrical experts are the best to handle commercial switchboard installations.
