Switchboards are an essential part of every home. When was the last time you had your switchboard inspected? Is your switchboard old and full of ceramic fuses? Sounds like you need an upgrade! Ceramic fuses and circuit breakers are decades old, and no longer meet safety standards and regulations and pose as a potential fire hazard. As of 2018 wiring rules state that all circuits in a residential premises need to be RCD protected. RCD’s being so effective in preventing electrocution that they are now mandated by law.
RCD’s do not only protect your wiring but also protect the individual in the event of electrocution essentially saving lives. If an individual was to be at the end of an electrocution, or a child was to stick a fork in a power point, the RCD would essentially switch off and cut power to that circuit potentially saving a life. Thermal imaging is also a great way to prevent potential fires and hazards before they occur. Beware of any electrician that uses MCBs. They are either cutting corners, are not licensed in NSW or are not up to date. For your FREE switchboard inspection get in contact today with a member from our staff to see how we can assist you.
