What you need to know about switchboards
An electrical switchboard is an essential piece of equipment that distributes the current from the mains supply; in other words, divides the main current into smaller currents. These smaller currents are used to power specific applications and devices in your home, such as kitchen ovens, air-conditioning units and lighting systems.
Modern electrical switchboards feature safety switches / circuit breakers (also called RCD’s) that are designed to protect individual circuits against shorts, overloads and electric shocks. In other words, modern electrical switchboards are designed to keep people and property safe. If your current switchboard is old or damaged, it could be unsafe.
Signs that you might need a new switchboard
There are signs and circumstances that indicate you might need a new switchboard.
- You’re having a rooftop solar system installed (extra switchboard space is usually required for the smart meter).
- Your switchboard is old – it has ceramic fuses (rather than modern safety switches) and/or an asbestos backing panel (common in many pre-2004 switchboards).
- You notice a burning smell coming from your switchboard.
- The safety switches / circuit breakers are charred or discoloured.
- The main safety switch keeps tripping (cutting the power off).
- An individual safety switch keeps tripping (disrupting the operation of an appliance or device in the home).
- You’re about to install an energy-intensive application, such as air-conditioning or electric heating.
- Your lights flicker constantly.
If you’re considering a rooftop solar system, or have any doubts about your existing switchboard, it’s advisable to contact a licensed Canberra electrician.
