Need an electrical switchboard upgrade or replacement?

The team at Static Electrics can help. If your home is experiencing tripping of power points and unexplained power drop outs, this can be caused by your switchboard being unable to handle the electrical needs of your household. Many switchboards were created when electrical usage was a lot simpler, and have never been upgraded, resulting in a switchboard that is unsuitable for your home. Give us a call today to find out what we can do to assist!

Why Would You Need An Electrical Switchboard Upgrade?

There are a range of reasons your switchboard may need upgrading including:

  • Safety : the most important reason! 
  • Legislation : Many older switchboards are not compliant with current regulations and/or legislation.
  • Safety Switches : Most newer switchboards have inbuilt safety switches, which makes them less of a shock and fire risk. 
  • Smart Meters : Many smart meters need newer switchboards to work. 
  • Solar : If you are wanting to install solar, many solar systems require newer switchboards to run properly. 
  • Fuses : As newer switchboards are more appropriately designed for electrical workloads that we experience now, as opposed to 5+ years ago, this results in less chance of your fuses blowing. 
  • Overload : As newer switchboards are more appropriately designed for electrical workloads that we experience now, as opposed to 10+ years ago, this results in less chance of your switchboard overloading. 
  • Tripping : As newer switchboards are more appropriately designed for current electrical workloads, this results in less chance of your circuit breaker tripping.

A switchboard is the crucial part of safe electrical currency flow, so it is super important for it to be in peak condition all the time. Keeping on top of your switchboard needs is key to electrical safety across your property, so call Static Electrics Brisbane for assistance.

What Are The Signs You Need A Switchboard Upgrade?

There are some common symptoms that can arise when your switchboard is due for an upgrade. Give us a call though if you are unsure :

Don’t delay your switchboard replacement like these guys did!

  • Age of your home and age of the wiring in your home.
  • When you take a look at your switchboard, it looks overcrowded.
  • If your fuses are regularly blowing up.
  • If your power points seem to be a strange colour, or they are hot to touch.
  • If your lights are constantly flickering.
  • If your appliances are tripping regularly.
  • If you are getting an electric shock when you put a plug into a power point.
  • If your power points are sparking.
  • If you hear a buzzing or sizzling.

This list isn’t exhaustive, so speak to us if you have any concerns or would like electrical switchboard testing.

TIP: If your wiring is grey and/or black then it probably requires upgrading. If your wiring is white, an upgrade may not be needed quite yet (but get your electrician to check). If your switchboard has rewireable fuses, instead of circuit breakers, you need a switchboard upgrade as a matter of urgency. Rewireable fuses have copper wire fuses which are large safety hazards, so call us ASAP for assistance.
