Chances are, if your home’s wiring and switchboard upgrades are more than fifteen years old, you will soon notice the toll that all these modern conveniences are taking on them. Some of the warning signs you may begin to notice are:
Homes any older than this are probably equipped with an antiquated fuse box that is filled with ceramic fuses that are unreliable, incapable of supporting modern electricity usage demands and, quite frankly – a hazard to you and your family.
Ceramic fuses and associated components are more prone to fires than even old circuit breaker boxes are due to their design. They were never created to support the electrical load of modern homes and they shouldn’t be expected to – without issue.
Age isn’t the only factor when deciding whether switchboard upgrades or not to replace the switchboard in your home. “Wear n tear” and damage are major contributors as well.
Loose or exposed wiring, broken breakers or switches, water damage or even damage from lightning and storms could jeopardize the integrity of a home’s switchboard and related components.
If you are experiencing any of the aforementioned issues with your home’s electrical circuits – or if your home is more than 15-20 years old, it may be time to replace your switchboard.
