FAQs about Electrical Switchboard Upgrades

This will depend on the number of circuits in your Eastern Suburbs home. It’s recommended that all of them be upgraded with safety switches to adequately protect you and your belongings. Your electrician will be able to provide a recommendation for best practices once they review your existing panel.

You shouldn’t need to. They are designed to last and with proper testing and maintenance, your switches should last the lifetime of your home.

Your local electrician can show you exactly how to run a test on your specific model. However, most come clearly marked with a test button that you can push on the safety switch itself. You can then check to see whether the electricity has been cut off to the expected appliances or devices in your home to confirm that it worked.

Considering how much extra protection this will give you and your home, the cost is well worthwhile and not likely to break the bank, either. Where the installation is straightforward and no other problems come up, you can expect to pay between $175-$275 for an installation or replacement.

Keep in mind that safety switches are per-circuit. So you will likely need to purchase and have more than a few installed to adequately protect you and your home.
