Your switchboard is essentially the control centre for your business or home’s entire electrical network. It is here that your power supply is organised into different circuits with a fuse attached to each. Switchboards are also sometimes known as fuse boxes or power boxes and are commonly found attached the side of a wall on the outside of a property or in a garage or electrical room.
There are plenty of common signs that your switchboard could do with a service. If you experience any of the following, you may have outdated equipment or require repairs:
– Constantly blowing fuses
– Flickering lights
– Power outages
– Higher than expected power bills
– Switchboard missing a safety switch
Outdated switchboards may also be prone to short-circuits, which can spark and cause fires and electrocution. Newer switchboards are able to switch off the power supply if there is a power leak. It may be essential for obsolete equipment to be upgraded ASAP to keep the people and belongings inside your property safe and prevent any potential risk.
H4ORCE’s electricians are fully qualified and have a heap of experience when it comes to assessing switchboards and installing circuit breakers with safety switches that fit in your meter box. Whether it is in a commercial, industrial or residential property, we will be able to diagnose any faults with your fuse box and then provide an honest, up-front recommendation and quote, whether it be for repairing your existing switchboard, installing safety switches or providing an upgrade for a new switchboard.
