Switchboards & Switchboard Upgrades

Installation and Upgrade of Switchboards

Protect your home and family with an Electrical Switchboard Upgrade package – available to all homes in Ipswich, Springfield, Brisbane and all surrounding areas.

The switchboard is the heart and centre of all the electrical components in your home. This is where all the circuit protection should be and it’s by far the most important part of an electrical installation. Making sure the switchboard is safe and meets current standards should be the 1st priority when looking to buy an existing house or do any additional work on your home.

Do you know that any additional electrical items cannot be added to your home unless the circuit it is connected too has protection from a safety switch? Many Electricians will take your money and install addition electrical fittings/cabling to circuits with no safety switch, not only is this unsafe it is also illegal.

Switchboard Maintenance

If you do have a switchboard that has been upgraded it is still important to have it checked and maintained. Over time the cables can become loose and safety switches fail. Safety switches should be tested every 3 months to see if they are still providing protection. This can be done by pressing the test button and seeing if they trip. The easiest way to remember to do this is every time you receive a power bill, test the safety switches. At Sorted Electrical we offer 6 monthly switchboard checks at a fixed price. Contact us here to book a 6 monthly switchboard check.
