Now down to the electrical business of the day… Have you ever been told your switchboard needs an ‘upgrade’? What does this actually mean? We recently went to a large property in Double Bay, Sydney. When we attended we found that the switchboard was completely melted. The reason it melted was the fact that there was a leak coming through the roof into the switchboard and no one even knew about it. A completely new switchboard was needed to be built, and new circuit breakers installed. The entire place was without power for over three days because a specific manufactured switchboard was required! The key is prevention; not to let it get to this stage. And this is why your electrician might tell you that you need a switchboard upgrade. An upgrade usually involves switching over fuses, or circuit breakers (or a combination of both) to safety switches (RCD/MCBs). Why would you want to do this? Fuses are much harder for the house holder to re-establish power in the event of an overload or a fault. To cause breakers or safety switches to trip requires more of a fault, and these are much less likely to cause problems, injuries, and fires.
So back to prevention. How do you know what protection you have? You need a qualified professional Sydney electrician to make this assessment for you. At Glenco, we always carry out a free safety and efficiency audit on your property when we attend. This way, if there are any risks, we know they are minimised and bigger problems are prevented in the long term, saving you money, not to mention stress, heartache, injury, and damage to your property.
