The switchboard is the control centre of your home's electrical system. An outdated or malfunctioning switchboard is not just inefficient but could also be dangerous. Every new home requires an electrical system that's not just efficient but also incredibly safe. The electrical load has significantly increased with the increasing number of electrical devices in our homes. That's where modern switchboards come into play. These switchboards are well-equipped with circuit breakers that act as an immediate line of defence against potential electrical hazards. So how do they work? Let's dive in.

Why upgrade your switchboard?

Switchboard upgrades are essential for handling the electrical demands of modern homes, reducing the risk of electrical fires and enhancing overall safety. In the past, homes relied on fuse boxes that needed manual resetting and replacement once they burned out. With technological advancements, circuit breakers have taken their place. Unlike fuses, these modern marvels can be easily reset with the flip of a switch, offering a faster and more convenient safety solution.

A circuit breaker is essentially an automatic electrical switch designed to stop the flow of current in an electrical circuit as a safety measure. When it detects a fault condition, such as an overload or a short circuit, it interrupts the current flow by automatically “tripping” or switching off.

Make the safe choice

GFCIs and AFCIs: Ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) and arc-fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs) are specialised types of circuit breakers. GFCIs protect against electrical shock due to ground faults, while AFCIs provide protection against electrical fires caused by dangerous arcs in the circuit. Both are critical additions to modern switchboards and new homes, enhancing your safety further.
