Time for a Switchboard / Fusebox Upgrade? 

The performance of your home’s appliances and general power supply starts with the switchboard. The role of the switchboard is to ensure that your appliances are getting the power that they need to work efficiently.

A switchboard or fusebox upgrade also consists of having the latest circuit protection devices to protect you and property from dangerous electrical faults.

A Switchboard / Fusebox upgrade also gives you piece of mind knowing your power supply is safe and within the current electrical regulations.

Many older properties do not have a switchboard that is designed to keep up with today’s demands therefore modern power consumption can cause this out-dated piece of equipment problems. Older switchboards simply cannot cope with the volume and power of modern day appliances. If you consider the air-conditioning, hot water, electric stove and many other modern luxuries you use today, it is no wonder it could be time for an upgrade.

If you are wondering whether it’s time to upgrade and replace your switchboard, you should probably consider it, if you experience any of the following

  • Does it seem like your appliances struggle to get the power they need? 
  • Does it seem like your fuse / circuit breaker trips every time you turn on microwave or kettle?
  • Do I have a safety switch installed?
  • Do your lights constantly flicker back and forth from dim to bright?
  • Can I see any ceramic fuses in my meter box / switch board?

If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions then it is most likely time for a switchboard upgrade.

NOTE: Next time you take your bins out and possible pass your switchboard consider if your home has circuit breakers, safety switches OR unsafe ceramic fuses.

Why are switchboard upgrades necessary for your household? 

  1. Outdated switchboards are highly prone to short-circuits. Their fuses are more harmful as those fuses tend to catch and spread fire easily. Also there are chances of electrical shock with these old boards. Now, if you do not want to live inside such a life-threatening atmosphere then go for switchboard upgrades. The electrical safety switch, available these days with latest switchboards, makes it sure that you do not get electric shock or no serious physical damage occurs due to a fire breakout. An electrical safety switch shuts down the main power supply as soon as it senses the slightest hint of any power leakage from a broken wire or switch.
  2. Few decades ago, your household was not furnished with tons of electrical appliances or devices. In those days, just a heater, chimney, dish washer, refrigerator and oven used to do it all. So better switchboard installation was not required. But now you have computer, cooler, vacuum cleaner, dryer, washing machine, stereos, fitness equipments, microwaves, pumps, home theatres, central room temperature controlling system and many more. 
    Do you think your old switches will be able to tackle such a huge power supply? So it’s high time that you should go for a new switchboard installation or switchboard upgrades.
  3. If you experience frequent power tripping then it’s most likely that your electrical equipments are crying for switchboard upgrades. Older boards are designed to supply power to a small number of kitchen or household appliances, not to the numerous ones you have bought. So please don’t let your life-supporting devices struggle hard to get their required power supply and hire Star Plus Electrical to guide you in your switchboard installation.
  4. Switchboard upgrades are also necessary when your lights flicker all the time. It makes such a nuisance mostly when you are reading something or may be having a serious talk with your colleagues at your place.
  5. Last but not the least, you will get the opportunity to cut down or restore power with the electrical safety switch installed in newer switchboards.

A life is valuable than anything else. So why putting this precious life at risk when you have the option to stay secured? Star Plus Electrical is always there offering you the best switchboard upgrades and switchboard installation support.
