Whether you want to upgrade your outdated electrical system or your planning to install a new one, it is very crucial that you have at least basic knowledge of how your electrical system and its wirings work. However, we highly discouraged you to do the electrical work yourself unless you are a licensed electrician in Melbourne. Aside from the fact that it is illegal, it might also put you and your family at risk.
If your switchboard fails, it will automatically cease electrical supply if it notes any faulty electrical problem in your home. So, for switchboard failures, call an emergency electrician to do the immediate work for you. To prevent any untoward incidents due to faulty electrical wiring, it’s a must to ask for immediate help. Don’t hesitate to contact the Artisan Electrical Team who is available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week at 0466 631 161
Causes and Reasons for Faulty Switchboard
Even if you have circuit breakers and surge protectors, faulty switchboards can still be undetected. Some owners only think about electricity when they don’t have power or when they got the electricity bill in their hands.
If you noticed that your lights or appliances are constantly tripping, it could be because of the following reasons:
• Outdated Wiring Design
One of the reasons for switchboard failures is because of outdated and damaged electrical system wirings. With all the electrical devices you have plugged in your home, your old wirings cannot meet the electrical demand of these gadgets and appliances.
• Switchboard Overloading
As aforementioned, overloading your switchboard drains your entire electrical system. The circuit in your home is designed specifically to hold a certain electrical load. When there is too much demand, it can cause overloading which will, later on, cause your switchboard to fail. With this, power will shut down, and in the worst-case scenario, it can set off an electrical fire.
Thus, regular inspection of your entire electrical system by a certified electrician will protect your system from incurring major damages, as small issues or concerns will be noted and fixed before it goes to worst.
To be a smart electricity consumer, it is best to get your switchboard checked every year by a licensed technician.
