Switchboard Upgrade

Industry leading Gold Coast switchboard upgrade solutions

If your power is constantly tripping, your power points are hot to touch or you get an electric shock when you plug something in, you need to consider a switchboard upgrade now. All these situations are signs that your switchboard is not dealing with your current electrical workload, which can be incredibly dangerous to you and those around you. Do not leave it too late - call the electricians at Pugin Power today and we can assist every step of the way.


What is a switchboard upgrade?

A switchboard upgrade is when your current switchboard is upgraded to allow for electrical current to flow through to your home or workplace.

Why do I need a switchboard upgrade?

There are a huge variety of reasons as to why you should have a switchboard upgrade, including:

  • Safety: If your switchboard is not the correct size or is too old, it can cause a range of safety hazards.
  • Legislation: A lot of older switchboards are no longer compliant with updated legislation.
  • Smart Meters: Many smart meters require newer switchboards in order to work correctly.
  • Overloading: Many older switchboards are not designed to deal with current electrical workloads, meaning they overload easier (which is a safety hazard).
  • Shock and Fire Risk: Switchboards that are not the correct one for your home or workplace can be both an electric shock and fire risk.
  • Solar: Many solar systems require a newer switchboard to run properly.

And this is just the beginning - speak to our friendly and knowledgeable Gold Coast electricians to learn more.
