Switchboard Upgrade

Highly recommended, prompt, efficient and excellent work, definitely use again!

Helene V

Do you have a home that’s more than 10 years old?

Do you want to install a new appliance such as an air conditioner or hotplate - but can’t add more to your old switchboard?

The risks

  • Power outages
  • Electrical fire
  • Injury or death by electrocution

These risks are high especially if you have a home that’s more than 10 years old - and use outdated, dangerous electrical systems.

Do you need a switchboard upgrade?

Find out by taking this short questionnaire:

  1. Is your home more than 10 years old?
  2. Do you need more room in your switchboard?
  3. Are you using multiple extension cords?
  4. Do your lights flicker?
  5. Does a fuse blow when you use more than 1 or 2 standard appliances?
  6. Have you noticed heat coming from your fuse board?
  7. Do you have two-pronged outlets?

If you answered ‘Yes’ to any of these, keep reading...

Why are old switchboards dangerous?

Wiring systems and fuse boards - that were once perfect for homes - are not suited to the needs of the modern household.


Look around your home.

You may have any combination of TVs, computers, laptops, phones, heaters, kettles, pressure cookers, toasters, bedside lamps, pergola lights, baby monitors… the list goes on.

Most older fuse boards and switchboards use rewirable fuses made of ceramic - these don’t comply with current Australian safety standards. Making them extremely dangerous for you and your family

What difference will a switchboard upgrade make?

Look around your home and you’re likely to find a few appliances you’ve left switched on at the powerpoint. The heater. The kettle. The TV.

What would happen if there’s an electrical fault while these are being used? Fire, damage to your home and appliances, injury to you or your family - or even worse, death by electrocution.

Modern switchboards include circuit breakers and safety switches that the old switchboards don’t have.

It’ll cut the electricity supply if there’s an electrical fault. New switchboards:

  • Save lives
  • Prevent electrical cables from catching fire
  • Protect appliances.
