Fuse Box And Switchboard Upgrades: The Electric Makeover Your Home Needs

The fuse box and switchboard are the unsung heroes of your home’s electrical system. They are not things you will think about much, but they are working hard behind the scenes to keep your lights on and your appliances humming. 

But what happens when they are not up to the task anymore? It’s time for an electric makeover! Read on to understand when fuse box and switchboard upgrades are required. 

When Should You Consider Fuse Box & Switchboard Upgrades?

Older systems can be a safety hazard. If your home was built before the 1980s (a lot in Brisbane and Queensland), chances are your fuse box needs to be updated and no longer meets modern safety standards. This can lead to electrical fires and other dangerous situations.

Upgrading your fuse box and switchboard also means you can take advantage of new technology such as solar, or to make your house safer. For example, they can protect you from electrocution by turning the power off during an accident.

Additionally, if you have one fault – the issue will be isolated. Meaning that you won’t lose power in your whole house for a fault in your bedrooms.

This can lead to substantial energy savings and lower electricity bills.

An Opportunity To Customise Your Electrical System

The most compelling reason to embark on an electrical upgrade is the opportunity to customise your home’s electrical system. Your electrical contractor can work with you to design a system that meets your specific needs and preferences. Want more power points in your kitchen? Need a dedicated circuit for your home theatre system? No problem. The possibilities are endless.

It Is Time To Call The Professionals

Of course, an electrical upgrade is not a DIY project. You should hire a licensed electrician to do the job safely and correctly and who will use only the highest quality materials and equipment to ensure your new system is reliable and long-lasting.

What Can You Expect During The Upgrade?

The process will vary depending on the specifics of your home’s electrical system, but it generally involves removing the old system and installing a new one. This may require rewiring or other adaptations to your home’s electrical infrastructure. But don’t worry—your electrician will guide you through every step of the process and answer any questions you may have.
