Signs that indicate the need for an electrical switchboard upgrade

Frequent Tripping: If your circuit breaker frequently trips, it’s a sign that your switchboard may not be able to handle the electrical load. Upgrading your switchboard will ensure a more stable and reliable power supply.

Overloaded Circuits: Do you experience flickering lights or outlets that no longer work when you plug in multiple devices? This could indicate that your switchboard is overloaded. Upgrading to a more advanced switchboard will provide additional circuits and prevent overloading.

Outdated Components: If your switchboard contains old fuses or outdated circuit breakers, or lacks surge protection, it’s time to consider an upgrade. Modern switchboards offer improved safety features and better protection against electrical faults.

Risks and hazards associated with an outdated switchboard

Electrical Fires: Outdated switchboards increase the risk of electrical fires due to faulty wiring, overloaded circuits, or inadequate protection against electrical faults. Upgrading your switchboard reduces the likelihood of fire hazards and provides enhanced safety measures.

Electric Shocks: An outdated switchboard may not have up to date safety features such as safety switches across all circuits, leading to potential electric shock hazards. Upgrading to a newer switchboard ensures the safety of you and your family, minimising the risk of electrical accidents.

Inefficient Power Distribution: Older switchboards may struggle to distribute power evenly, resulting in inconsistent electrical supply throughout your home. Upgrading your switchboard improves power distribution, providing a more reliable and stable electrical system.

A switchboard upgrade involves replacing or enhancing your existing electrical switchboard to ensure it meets current safety standards and can handle your electrical demands. It typically includes assessing your electrical system, designing a new switchboard layout, installing the new switchboard, configuring circuits, ensuring safety compliance, and conducting thorough testing and commissioning.

Upgrading your switchboard is often necessary for various reasons. If you frequently experience circuit breaker trips, overloaded circuits, or have outdated components like fuses, it’s a clear indication that your switchboard may need an upgrade. Additionally, if you’re planning to expand your property, adding new electrical devices or appliances, a switchboard upgrade will ensure sufficient power distribution and prevent potential hazards.

It is advisable to replace a switchboard in several situations. If your switchboard is old and contains outdated components, lacks safety features, or cannot handle your electrical load, it’s a good time to consider a replacement. Other signs include consistent circuit breaker trips, flickering lights, or if you’re renovating or adding new electrical installations that exceed your switchboard’s capacity.

The duration of a switchboard upgrade depends on various factors, such as the complexity of the project, the size of the property, and specific requirements. Generally, a switchboard upgrade can take anywhere from a few hours to a full day or more. Our team at Jabel Electrical Services strives to complete the upgrade efficiently while ensuring meticulous workmanship and adherence to safety protocols. During the consultation, we can provide you with a more accurate estimate based on your unique circumstances.
