Is your old fuse box not working as it should? Are the fuses loose? Do your old circuit breakers trip all the time?
If so you are probably worried about the safety of your family and pets. Also, your power demands are possibly greater than your existing switchboard can handle, even if your cabling infrastructure is fine.
With all the creature comforts of modern living the power usage in most houses has more than doubled from 30 years ago. Back when your switchboard or fuse board was installed the appliances in most households were kept to a minimum. Now we have 1kilowatt flat screen TV’s (sometimes a couple per house), convection ovens, multiple air conditioners, pool pumps, and more appliances to give you the creature comforts you demand. In a lot of houses the amount of lights has quadrupled from one wall light to 4 down-lights per room. Not only does this put a strain on your wallet (unless you have LED lighting) but your circuit protection as well.
Is your switchboard up to the task?
Outdated switchboards are highly prone to short-circuits.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 is more chance of electric shock with these old boards. Everything in life has a use –by date. Whether it’s a litre of milk or a car or your switchboard, nothing lasts forever. If you have old ceramic fuses or old breakers, you really should consider upgrading to a safer option.
With our switchboard install package priced to sell, you know you have all the safety of new RCD’s, circuit breakers that trip when they are supposed to and the option to upgrade with a hot water system timer or surge diverter. As we know that the HWS uses up to a quarter of the power in most households, so having a timer installed to cut that down could save quite an amount of power if you have a large household and our top of the range full house protection surge diverters really are worthwhile if you have computers, big TV’s, newer style ovens or dishwashers and other electronics. More and more these appliances are being affected by surges.
Total cost of installation, testing, materials and travel (in Darwin and local surrounds) cost is only:
