Every house and apartment has switchboards fitted in them. They are incredibly vital installations as they connect to every electronic appliance in your home. They are also responsible for keeping both your property and family safe.
However, in case you live in an older apartment, you can consider upgrading your switchboard. Upgrading the feature has several benefits, it also eliminates the risk of potential fire hazards.
A switchboard is an installation that can be fitted in any part of your house. While it may be located in the hallway in some properties, others might have them installed in front of their home.
This fixture includes circuit breakers, fuses, as well as safety switches. Every single circuit that runs through your property is controlled from this board, and from the board to the electric meter.
These connections are specifically designed to shut off in case there’s something wrong with the current. If a particular electric line is overused or if an appliance malfunctions and results in a short circuit, it will switch off instantly. The switchboard will quickly shut off the power to your house, keeping it safe from potential fires and electrification.
While switchboards should always be inspected once every 5 years, it might be a good idea to have them replaced every 20 years. The older switchboards on properties often function on ceramic fuses and not on modern circuit breakers.
While most licensed electricians will set up a new circuit while installing more modern electrical devices on your property, you might be better off redoing the entire box rather than only specific circuit breakers. This will help you deal with future conversions much more efficiently.
In case your circuit breaker keeps tripping, you need to get in touch with an electrician right away. This is especially true if your circuit breakers don’t trip when an appliance on your property malfunctions.
Upgrading your switchboard on the property has several benefits, such as:
