Keep your family safe from fire risks

If your electrical power board looks like the dated versions, it’s time they got an upgrade. 

Here are the common signs to upgrade your switchboard:

  • Undersized Switchboard
  •  Flickering Lights
  •  Circuits Keep Tripping
  •  Melted Fuses
  • A Slight Burning Smell
  • Sparks
  • Switchboard with Ceramic Fuses
  • Asbestos behind the Switchboard
  • There Are a Lack of Safety Switches
  • Your Appliances Are Not Performing Properly

Why Should You Upgrade Your Switchboard?

Protection from Electrocution: a faulty switchboard is likely to cause electrocution in the home, especially to those who come around the board. Since you want to protect your family or workers, upgrading your switchboard is an excellent investment to consider.

Low Risk of Fire Danger: an old switchboard can start a fire due to faulty fuses and degrading wiring. Replacing your switchboard helps eliminate this risk. 

Low Maintenance Costs: while upgrading your switchboard might seem costly initially, it is wise to think of how much you would spend on repairing faulty appliances due to an old switchboard. 

Extend Equipment’s Lifespan: the performance of your switchboard contributes to the lifespan of the equipment used on it. It is not wise enough to run your 2020s appliances on a 1900s switchboard.

We saw an ad in the local paper for upgrading our fuse board. We phoned, and got a prompt response from Lewis, with an inspection, followed by a quote, and a subsequent visit to very efficiently install a new up to date fuse board. Lewis explained exactly what the new fuse board would do in terms of safety, and reassured us as to the safety of our existing wiring. Lewis is a very personable helpful person to deal with. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who needs electrical work done.

Lewis installed an outdoor power point and a switch to power our outdoor festoon lights. From the initial consultation he offered ideas and advice which were much appreciated. He carried out the work better than we could have hoped for on time and we are so happy with the result. Would not hesitate to recommend Lewis.

Lewis replaced our original 70's switch board amongst other odds and ends and I am very pleased with his work and I will definitely be using him again for any future electrical work and I wouldn't go anywhere else.Lewis is very professional, courteous, honest, dependable, super knowledgeable, and everything else you could want in a top quality tradesman!Hopefully one day I will be able to buy an EV car and I will be going straight to Lewis to safely install the beefier home charger!I definitely recommend him to anyone reading these reviews and I wish him all the best and great success with his business 🙂

From the moment we met Lewis.... (he was so thorough with his initial consultation) we knew he was the electrician for us. Nothing was a problem and we can be demanding. We had a complete rewiring of our 1911 villa which was long overdue. We were impressed that the job was completed within the agreed time frame and him and George even ensured it was all clean and all rubbish removed before they left. Thank you Lewis.

I saw Lewis's advert in our local paper regarding replacement of an aging switch board, which was a job I had been considering for some time as my original 70's switch board has had many additions and alterations to it by numerous electricians over many years. Frankly it looked like a hazard waiting to happen, however the potential cost was a determent at the time. The advert spurred me on to take action and I contacted Lewis to come and have a look at the necessary work. At the same time I was doing some alterations and also asked Lewis to combine relocation and addition of new outlet sockets and even a new data cable run for an access point. From the first meeting I was really impressed with Lewis's attitude, professionalism, knowledge and presentation. Throughout my dealings with him these qualities remained at the forefront of his work ethics and approach. Timeliness and communication where other quality amply demonstrated throughout my dealings with Lewis. The switch board replacement was not straight forward due to the location I required it to remain in and the number of circuits etc required. Lewis tackled the task without fuss and fanfare. The final outcome was exceptional and I am so grateful I saw the advert and took the time to call him. I can honestly say Lewis is an example that all trade men should set their standards to and I cannot endorse more strongly that engaging Lewis to conduct any electrical or data cabling work on your property would be the best thing you could do. Additionally he charged a competitive and fair price for his work.
