Are you looking to install new switchboards after a home renovation or new build? BPM Electrical provides domestic switchboard installation and upgrades services across Auckland in strict compliance with the local electrical safety standards.
Switchboard Upgrade and Replacement
Your switchboard is a critical part of your electrical system that serves as the central hub where the entire wiring of your home comes together. If they are correctly installed and maintained, then they protect the circuits in your home or workplace. otherwise, they can be the cause of fires.
If you have an old switchboard, chances are your building may not be protected against a fatal electric shock. Upgrade your switchboard to an RCD protected board to make your home a safer place for your family. A Residual Current Device (RCD) protected switchboard typically consists of multiple circuit breakers to constantly monitor the flow of electricity for individual circuits.
When a potential electrical fault is detected, the RCD immediately cuts off the power supply to minimise the risk of electric shock incidents. If you think that your current switchboard is outdated or you want to upgrade your existing switchboard to accommodate the increased power demands, contact BPM Electrical Ltd.
We have a team of professional electricians who will do the switchboard installation as per the current electrical codes and standards of the building so that existing circuits don’t overload.
When Do You Consider A Switchboard Upgrade?
If you notice frequent flickering of lights around your home, hear a buzzing noise from the central switchboard, or want to use more appliances that require a higher power consumption, you must consider a switchboard upgrade.
However, several older homes in Auckland rely on outdated switchboards that are not RCD protected so they are unable to support a large number of power-hungry, modern electrical devices. For instance, if you’re planning for a spa pool installation, new air conditioning units, or other large appliances, you will need to upgrade your central switchboard. We are completely aware of all these things and treat our projects accordingly.
Also, if you are unsure about the safety of your switchboard, you can call us to have it checked. We’ll visit your home for a general inspection and provide an honest opinion on whether your switchboard is safe or an upgrade is needed.
How Much Does A Switchboard Installation Cost?
We can’t just quote an exact figure without checking your home’s electrical system because the cost of a switchboard installation depends on different factors. Most homes have single-phase power switchboards and some may have 3 phase power. Also, some homes have their own sub-board for garages and guest rooms.
So, if you need an exact quote, contact us today. We’ll send one of our expert electricians to your home for inspection of all the existing electrical switchboards and then we’ll provide you with an accurate estimate.
Our Switchboard Installation Process
We pay close attention to every aspect of the electrical installation process to ensure safety. For a switchboard upgrade, we start with identifying all the wiring and overall electrical system of your home to ensure that our domestic switchboard installation process doesn’t disturb other smaller circuits. Next, we load test a selection of the circuits to determine the appropriate capacity and configuration needed for the upgraded switchboard.
Further, we remove outdated or faulty components with new circuits for efficient power distribution. Then, we re-connect the electrical wiring into the new RCDs to ensure proper connectivity and organisation within the switchboard. Once all the switchboard installations are done, our electricians East Auckland conduct thorough testing to ensure the upgraded domestic switchboards function properly and meet safety regulations.
