After many years an electrical system can deteriorate and become dangerous to use, a rewire upgrade may be required. Are you experiencing any of the following issues:
Evidence of DIY wiring – if unlicensed electrical work has been conducted then it may pose a safety problem.
Age – if your home is over 40 years old. Fuses are used not circuit breakers.
Tripping – safety switch or circuit breakers repeatedly trip.
Damage – loose or damaged wiring may cause an arch and spark which can result in fire.
Burning smell – a persistent burning smell in the house which can’t be identified could indicate overheating of electrical wiring.
Flood – if your home has experienced damage from flooding.
A complete electrical rewire is usually a major job but is of critical importance to safety. The length of time and cost for rewiring a house depends upon the size of the home, the number of power points and switches and the layout of the electrical circuits. Electrical rewiring of your home or unit won’t put your life on hold. You’ll still have power outside of work hours and jobs are usually completed within 2-3 days depending on the size of your home. We clean up after every day so your home is livable.
Both switchboards and fuse boxes regulate the distribution of electricity in the premises, in the event of an electrical overload the breaker/fuse that corresponds to the overloaded circuit will flip/blow, cutting off all electricity to a particular segment. Ceramic fuses were standard with houses older than 30 years, now switchboard circuit breakers are used instead. If your fuse box is malfunctioning then it poses a critical safety risk and it is imperative to upgrade to the new technology.
Current standard switchboards are fitted with automatic trip circuit breakers and RCD safety switches that cut off power supply when a fault is detected, preventing electrocution and circuit overload. Current regulations require safety switches to be installed standard by all electricians.
If you have an old style fuse box then upgrade to a new switchboard today to protect your home or workplace. New premises without existing electrical infrastructure? We’ll take care of it, we do new switchboard installs for new homes and business premises, apartments and mulit-storey units, buildings, factories.
