Why do I need a switchboard upgrade?
Legislation and technology has changed over time. No longer should homes have insufficient protection. All circuits should be covered by at least one safety switch “RCD” to avoid electrocution and shock. Things like feeling tingles in the shower can be a small sign of a life threatening problem. Do you have old ceramic fuses, only one safety switch, flammable or asbestos backing old meters, incorrect labelling? Any of these could be a sign that its time to upgrade your switchboard
