Smartlec - Electrical Switchboard Upgrades and Installs

Your switchboard is the beating heart of the electricity coming into your home or business, it takes the raw mains feed from outside and splits it safely into different circuits inside the property. A switchboard also provides multiple safety features and protects you from many faults so updating your switchboard from old style ones or upgrading it to cover your increasing energy requirements is a worthwhile job. Whilst it's not illegal to have old-style units (and there are still many about), it’s certainly much safer to have a new switchboard in your home or business.

Installing or Upgrading a New Switchboard

There are many switchboard models on the market but Smartlec will recommend the one that suits your budget and power requirements. Mainly your switchboard will be rated in its power capability and how many circuits or switches it has available as well as a host of safety features. We can usually specify which switchboard and accurately quote the price from a quick visit and installation usually takes half a day but up to a full day depending on how much wiring there is.

Power Upgrades for Commercial Businesses

If your business is expanding then often you can start to outstrip your power requirements. Maybe you have started to trip the safety switches in your switchboard meaning you are overloading your supply, if so then you’ll need a switchboard upgrade or possibly installation of a 3-phase supply. Smartlec has carried many such jobs for all types of commercial businesses.

3-Phase Power Upgrades

Some premises (usually businesses but some large homes) will require a 3-Phase switchboard which has a greatly increased supply of power. 3-Phase supplies require less wiring and are more efficient plus the power will never drop to zero. As level 2 qualified electricians we can carry out this work.

Switchboard Repairs

We can often safely fix old-style fuse box switchboards and also modern types without replacing them. Often faults can occur over time as wiring degrades or they are damaged during renovations or if located outside then weather damage.

How do I know I need a new switchboard?

Old-style switchboards (ones with fuses) should be replaced as a matter of routine when over 25 years old (although it’s not illegal to have one still), but other signs you may need a switchboard upgrade are constant trips. A more serious sign is sparks or discolouration around the box so you should call us immediately

Can I fix a switchboard myself?

No, absolutely never attempt to do this. Not only is it illegal but it is also highly dangerous, please call Smartlec asap for any suspected switchboard issues

How much does a new switchboard cost?

Every job is unique which is why we always come and give accurate quotes based on your needs and budget, but they start from as little as $800 for a simple basic one that is easy to install. things like having to move the location will increase the price as will the board itself and its safety features

What switchboard brands do you use?

We only install high-quality branded switchboards that have been passed as legal for Australian standards. There is simply no benefit in installing inferior or cheap switchboards considering how important they are
