    Switchboard Upgrades and Repairs

    Switchboards, also known as fuse boxes, are where all your electricity in your home is distributed from. Your power from the street will come into your switchboard and then distribute out to all your lights, powerpoints and appliances etc.

    The Importance of a High Quality Switchboard

    Having a high quality switchboard is imperative. Older switchboards tend to have fuses, which when there is too much power drawn, they blow. And this means you will need to replace the whole fuse. This can take a while for the fuse wire to burn out and can be a fire hazard.

    With a modern switchboard, we install safety switches and circuit breakers. So if there is too much power drawn, the circuit breaker will detect it and automatically switch off, protecting the cable from overheating.

    Our team of highly trained local electricians provide and install reliable switchboards across Melbourne.

    Emergency Repairs, Day or Night!

    We understand that if your switchboard is not working properly, nothing else will work properly! So if you happen to have a problem with your switchboard, power or lights in your home whether it’s day or night, don’t stress! We are open 24/7 and with our emergency rapid response plan, one of our friendly electricians will be there within 3 hours of your enquiry to help sort it out.

    Is your switchboard old or unsafe? Are you having problems with fuses blowing or circuit breakers and safety switches tripping? Our friendly electricians are always available to help you from across Melbourne.

    When Should You Schedule a Switchboard Upgrade in Melbourne?

    Scheduling a switchboard upgrade is crucial when you notice frequent electrical issues such as circuit breakers tripping, fuses blowing often, or if your current switchboard lacks safety switches. 

    Additionally, if you live in an older home with outdated electrical systems or are planning to increase your power usage with new appliances or renovations, it’s time to consider an upgrade. 

    Modern switchboards enhance safety, accommodate higher electrical loads, and protect your residential/commercial spaces against electrical hazards. Upgrading your switchboard is a safety measure and a proactive step towards ensuring your home’s electrical system can handle current and future demands efficiently.
