Electrical switchboards are one of the most significant pieces of equipment in your house and play an important part in the overall efficiency and safety of your electrical system. Outdated switchboards can cause frequent electrical trips and endanger you and your family.
As qualified electricians, we have conducted hundreds of switchboard upgrades all over the Northern Beaches and North Shore.
A safety switch is a device that rapidly shuts off the power supply whenever an electrical fault is detected, reducing the danger of fires, electric shock, injury, and death caused by electricity.
Power point and lighting circuit safety switches are required by law to be fitted in all new houses and buildings when electrical circuits are changed or added. This law was created in 1991. As a result, if your house was built prior to this date, it may not be protected by safety switches.
If you're not sure if your home has a safety switch, call a Lumivolt for advice or to have one fitted.
