Switchboard Upgrades for Older Homes:
We recommend getting your switchboard upgraded on any home that is older than 30 years. The reason for this is that the systems that were used 30 years ago have become outdated and have since been replaced with safer technology. Depending on the exact system that your property is using, some of the safety risks that your system might pose include:
- Electrocution: if you have old ceramic re-wirable fuses then you may have a higher risk of electrocution due to the way that blown fuses are replaced in these systems.
- Safety of Children: with a ceramic fuse removed, live terminals are exposed leaving people vulnerable to electric shock.
- Safety Switch: If your system is old then your safety switch may not be operating correctly without you even noticing, or you may not even have a safety switch installed.
If you are uncertain how old your home is or what kind of switchboard you are using get in touch with us today and we’ll send someone one to take a look at it – it is better to be safe than sorry, and it will give you peace of mind to know that your electrical switchboard is using modern technology and is running without any issues.
