Benefits of a Switchboard Upgrade

Signs You Need a Switchboard Upgrade

Hearing buzzing noises? Experiencing flickering lights? These might be more than just nuisances. Older switchboards, especially those without safety switches, could be putting your property at risk.

An electrical switchboard upgrade becomes essential if you’re frequently resetting circuit breakers, your board uses old replaceable fuses, or you’re adding more Electrical devices. These are the signs you need an upgrade. Don’t let outdated switchboards gamble with your safety or comfort.

Types of Electrical Switchboard Installations We Offer

The world of switchboards isn’t one-size-fits-all. Depending on your needs, the complexity of your Electrical network, and the size of your property, different types of switchboards may be better suited for you. 

From basic domestic boards to more complex commercial setups, Nillumbik Electrical tailors solutions for every customer. Our Electricians evaluate your requirements and provide options to suit your situation and budget. We are not aligned with specific brands and can give independent advice on the best switchboard for your needs..

Replacing Your Old Switchboard: What You Need to Know

Having an old Electrical switchboard can create safety risks and efficiency problems for your home or business. Older switchboards were designed for a different era, with less demanding Electrical needs. They are are not equipped to handle modern appliances and can overload easily.

If you encounter an electrical fault your power company could disconnect your old switchboard and issue a defect notice to have it replaced. You are then without power until you get it upgraded.

When renovating a property it is likely you will be required to upgrade your electrical switchboard to handle new kitchen appliances, heating and cooling. Outdoor renovations such as a new pool pump, lighting installation or outdoor kitchen may also require new switchboard installation.

How long does the switchboard installation or replacement take?

Most switchboards can be installed in a few hours to half a day, depending on the requirements of the property and type of switchboard. Upgrades and switchboard replacements can only be performed by registered and qualified Electricians such as Nillumbik Electrical. You will be issued an Electrical certificate and warranty for the work done.

Our Electricians explain what you need to know about your new switchboard before they leave, and we ensure everything is clean and tidy.

These guys are my Go To electricians. They are trustworthy and get a quality job done when needed. I've used them twice now. Rhett the owner is great to deal with and I'd recommend them over any one.
Rhett and Ash did a superb job redoing the lighting and electrical works at our house. We are very happy how it turned out, the lights completely transformed the place, advise given to us was spot on. The work was planned out and quoted in detail, transparent with decisions and costs of alterations to the plan (we made several on the fly, made the process very easy), super people to work with, a professional outfit, local Doreen based business too. They did 3 days of work at the house with minimum disruption to our daily routine, house was left clean and tidy, made it very convenient for us too. I can recommend Nillumbik Electrical to anyone.

Highly recommend! Great communication, personable guys, professional and…tradies who clean up after themselves?! No myth! They fixed a fan that’s been driving me nuts, installed 7 lights that look GREAT and installed a switch (no more fumbling around in the dark for me!) Great work. Don’t hesitate, super service.

Rhett and his team did an amazing job. They helped me with an oven installation and power point addition. The job turned out to be trickier than expected but Rhett took his time to think through and solve the problem in a creative way, which resolved the issue beautifully. Thank you for the job well done and I’ll definitely reach out again for future electrical work. Cheers, Ryan
