Safety Switches & Switchboards Gold Coast
If you’re undergoing a renovation or simply replacing your home’s appliances, it’s the perfect time to consider updating your electrical switchboard too.
Older style buildings and homes that have ceramic, rewireable fuses are slow to react to electrical faults and pose a high risk of electrical shock or fire. On the Gold Coast, it’s mandatory that all switchboards have a safety switch that will isolate the circuit during an electrical fault.
Our qualified Gold Coast team can upgrade your switchboard to prevent overloading and short-circuiting, optimise your power supply and ensure overall household safety. We will work alongside you to diagnose your electrical situation and determine if your switchboard will require a repair or a replacement. If you live on the Gold Coast and need your switchboard examined, our experts will ensure the job is completed properly and that you receive an upgrade that maximises safety and matches the power needs of your household.

An electrical safety switch will isolate a circuit on your switchboard in the event of an electrical fault. This helps avoid issues such as other circuits being simultaneously shorted and also helps prevent other serious issues like fires too. These requirements are mandatory for switchboards on the Gold Coast.
One of the best times to opt for a switchboard upgrade on the Gold Coast is when you’re conducting renovations or have recently installed new large-scale appliances, such as a refrigerator or washing machine. However, if it’s been a few years since it was last repaired or replaced, it may be worth speaking to a residential electrician in order to ensure that it’s still safe.
There’s no hard and fast rule for when you should upgrade your safety switch, but some of the common signs include frequent power outages or if you still have an older-style switchboard with ceramic, rewirable fuses. These older models are more prone to short-circuiting, causing power outages and, potentially, fires in the process.
