Your switchboard is the ‘control panel’ of your home’s electrical wiring. If your switchboard is getting on in years, you need to consider upgrading it for the following important reasons:
- Short-circuits – older switchboard have a greater propensity to short-circuit, meaning that there is a risk of the fuses catching fire, or risk of electric shocks. If your current switchboard still uses replaceable wires on the fuses, it is a safety hazard and needs to be replaced.
- Insufficient power supply –With a reliance on computers, air conditioners, home theatres, microwave ovens, fitness equipment, pool pumps, stereos and more, it is essential that the switchboard is able to handle the amount of electricity required by the household. Indications of an insufficient power supply are: power tripping, flickering lights
Safety switches are often confused with circuit breakers and surge diverters. Safety switches are not the same as circuit breakers or fuses. Safety switches are designed to prevent injury or death by automatically switching off the electricity supply, within 0.03 of a second, when an electrical fault is detected and should be tested every 3 months for correct operation and replace where necessary.
