Do you need to upgrade your switchboard?
Older switchboards rarely meet modern electrical health and safety standards in New Zealand. It is important to ensure your older home or building has an electrical system that meets these requirements, as protection against potential electrical fires and the risk of a fatal electric shock.
Our residential and commercial electrical experts will gladly come and take a look at your existing switchboard to determine whether you need an upgrade. We can also help with any other aspects of your electrics, including:
Closely related to switchboards, the role of circuit breakers is to protect the electrical circuit from short-circuiting or overloading. An overloaded power-point should trip your circuit breaker and temporarily stop transmitting a current.
Circuit protection is a critical part of ensuring your power system runs properly.
As part of our electrical installation and upgrade services, we can install a surge protector to help protect your appliances from damage from random power spikes. Get in touch with us if you want to find out more about surge protection and whether you might need it.
A fuse wire is a critical part of circuits, which helps avoid overloading and short-circuiting. As part of our switchboard upgrades, the Legacy Electrical team can check on your fuse wire.
