Older buildings and homes that have fuse type switchboards pose a much higher risk of electrical fires occurring and offer very limited protection against the risk of possible electric shocks. All modern switchboard installations should have mandatory safety switches installed, under Queensland law. Ged Electrical and Air can carry out switchboard upgrades in your Gold Coast or Brisbane home or business.
This is dependent entirely on what type of switchboard your have. Fuse type switchboards were the average switchboard installed in older houses. These older style of switchboard are becoming a huge fire risk as the average house electrical consumption was a lot less than to what it is now. With the introduction of air conditioners, TVs, computers, and other modern appliances your home you may be using a lot more power than what your switchboard can handle.
