Your switchboard is the centre of your electrical system, and it is essential that it is up to date, compliant, and safe.
An up to date switchboard ensures that your electrical system is running efficiently. A switchboard is responsible for controlling the flow of electricity throughout your home or business, and an outdated switchboard can cause significant problems such as overloading and tripping circuits. An up to date switchboard is designed to handle the latest technology and appliances, which reduces the risk of power surges and electrical damage.
Secondly, compliance with electrical standards is essential to ensure the safety of your family or employees. An outdated switchboard may not comply with current electrical safety standards, which can put everyone at risk of electrical shock or fire. Compliance with Australian standards ensures that your electrical system is designed and installed correctly, and regular maintenance ensures that it remains safe and compliant.
Thirdly, an outdated switchboard may not have the safety features required to protect against electrical hazards such as arc faults or ground faults. A safe switchboard is designed with protective features that detect and prevent hazards before they become dangerous.
