Dangers of an Outdated Switchboard

In older homes and buildings we often come across old fuse type switchboards. These types of switchboards can be unsafe, and they pose a higher risk of electrical shock and fires. New switchboards are equipped with mandatory safety switches.

Switchboards are a necessity and are the centre of your home’s power needs. They need to be working properly. A faulty switchboard can cause you to be electrocuted. There is also a chance that it can catch on fire and send flames up through the wall of your home.

Many older boards also contain asbestos. Asbestos is a known carcinogen that has to be removed by a professional. Our qualified electricians know how to properly remove and dispose of this harmful substance.

Oleada Electrical is based in Brisbane and service homeowners and commercial business owners who are in need of a switchboard upgrade.

What is an RCD / Safety Switch?

An RCD is the device that protects you against electrical fire and shock. They can protect you from electrocution by immediately cutting off the power source. It also protects the integrity of the cables.

An RCD monitors the electricity that is flowing through household circuits. If an RCD detects electricity flowing down an unplanned path, it cuts the power instantly. This safety precaution significantly decreases the threat of death or severe injury from an electrical mishap.

Energy Demands Putting Strains on Electrical Switchboards

When many older homes and businesses were built, the switchboards were not designed to handle the high energy demands of today. It has come to a point in time where electricity is taken for granted. But if you have an old switchboard there is a good chance that your system will not be able to handle your demands.

We have become completely reliant on electricity. We need it to charge our phones, run our appliances, heat our water and charge our cars. Older boards can no longer handle our daily needs. To take care of this issue you will need to have a switchboard upgrade in Brisbane.
