Unfortunately, switchboards that were made a decade or two ago are simply not able to handle modern electricity demands and can actually pose a danger to you and your family or employees. Today’s homes have many more power-hungry appliances and electronic devices than the homes of the past.
The obvious solution to this problem is a switchboard upgrade to ensure that your home or business’s power usage is handled and processed correctly. At Bellingers Electrical, we perform safe, neat, and effective switchboard upgrades, repairs, and installations in the Thuringowa area.
The rule of thumb when it comes to switchboards is that if it is over fifteen years old, it most likely needs replacing. Switchboards created a decade and a half ago were not built to handle modern appliances, and are quite incapable of effectively handling modern electricity usage. If you have an older switchboard, some of the warning signs may include:
But the age of your switchboard is not the only reason for an upgrade. You may need a switchboard upgrade if you have exposed or loose wiring (which can be very dangerous) as well as water damage or broken breakers. If your home has been struck by lightning; that may also be a reason to upgrade.
Because switchboards play such an integral part in protecting the wiring and electrical appliances of your home and business, it is imperative that you use a trusted and professional company when upgrading your switchboard. Another reason to go to respected experts is that replacing a switchboard is a complex task that is a lot more than simply taking the old one off and connecting the new switchboard.
