A messy switchboard can also be extremely dangerous

switchboards can cause fire in your home

Your electrical switchboard in your home or business is often overlooked when it comes to cleanliness and tidiness. Keeping your switchboard tidy is not necessarily about keeping it dust and dirt free, although that is also important to minimise the risk of fire.

Untidy cables can lead to loose cables which in itself can cause:

  • Exposed live wiring
  • Frayed cabling
  • Loose connections resulting in power or lights dropping in and out
  • Increased costs during upgrades and repairs due to longer labour time
  • Sparks leading to fire

The Central Coast is still full of original holiday homes built in the 1950's through to 70's that have ceramic fuses and aged wiring that present a far higher risk to your families safety than just untidy wiring. Many of these homes are not only missing circuit breakers but more importantly Residual Current Devices (RCD's).

Regardless of the age of your home or wiring, a tidy fuse box can still make a massive difference to the safety and longevity of your electrical system.

Companies on commercial premises can also be particularly susceptible to untidy and dangerous switchboards due mainly to a cost saving exercises and a variety of different electricians all adding their little bit to the electrical switchboard.

A tidy electrical switchboard on your business premises will actually save you money in the long run as it is easier for any electrician to access and accommodate your needs and means the safety of your staff and clients are always prioritised.

Keeping your switchboard safe, clean and tidy also means less susceptibility to electrical down time, reducing your workforce time with computers, phone and internet downtime can potentially cost your business much more than the preventative measures of a qualified electrician looking over your electrical switchboard. Impact Electrical can also ensure your business is compliant with current NSW and Federal electrical laws.
