Electrical Switchboard Upgrade
Your electrical switchboard is your main electrical distributor at home and the key to your electrical safety. Power from street wires or perhaps a solar system, always connects to your switchboard first. This is also where the amount of energy consumed by your household is shown on electricity usage meters together with main switches to isolate power and hot water systems and any additional isolating switches fitted.
Yet, electrical switchboards usually go unnoticed until a problem arises such as loss of power or perhaps an appliance that repeatedly causes the safety switch to trip. However, if the problem is a faulty appliance, quarantining that article until repaired or replaced should resolve the immediate problem. In the interest of good maintenance, it is also good practice to purposely “trip” or reset each circuit breakers regularly to make sure the safety device is working correctly.
