Old Switchboard, Wiring & Appliances

HOME OVER 25 YEARS OLD

High power bill? Safety switch tripped lately?

Electrical fires are surprisingly common and a very real but hidden risk if you live in a house with old or unprotected wiring. Councils across Adelaide publish warnings about older homes having outdated electrics which are considered to be below acceptable safety standards. Heavy electrical use over winter and summer can inflict significant damage to old circuits and components. It time to switch thinking ‘on’ about electrical safety.

Switchboard Meltdown

House electrical wiring over 25 years old should be professionally inspected at least every 25 years.

The molten switchboard adjacent was replaced by our technicians last month. Unnoticed electrical faults from faulty circuit breakers along with loose & rodent chewed cables can quickly turn into an inferno as flames travel up wall cavities or into roof spaces. Don’t let this happen to you. SWITCH THINKING

Electrical safety is all about locating and preventing any hidden dangers in your power systems & switchboard. This includes outlets, switching, lighting and wired-in appliances. Inspecting your switchboards for buzzing sounds plus any blackened, cracked or melted plastic fittings are indicators of potential fire hazards.

Technical Secret

Sharpe Accredited Technician Aaron says you should have at least two Safety Switches on a switchboard. For the best possible protection, you should have a maximum of two circuits for one safety switch. Having too many connected to one device decreases the operational performance of the switch and could put you at risk in the rare event that one fails.

Many members of the public are unaware of the potential damage they can do to their electrical circuits by using too many powerboards. Solve your powerboard problem by talking to Sharpe about installing additional powerpoints around the home. Don’t forget that the latest double powerpoints now come with the convenience of combined USB chargers.

Signs and symptoms

  • Do your electrics frequently trip?
  • Do you have to use extension cables in many areas?
  • Unexpectedly high power bills?
  • Are you regularly connecting heavy electricity-use appliances (like heaters)?
  • Do your power outlets emit strange buzzing sounds and become hot?
  • Do you use lots of appliances or multiple powerboards?
  • Noticed any cracked or blackened plastic in your switchboard?
  • Are your electrics old, outdated or haven’t been recently serviced?

If you notice any of these problems, call SHARPE for a Licensed Electrician immediately.

Safety Recommendation

Our electricians are worried by the lack of surge arrestors at homes in Adelaide.  This is a significant risk, especially if you’ve got solar panels or installed new air conditioning but haven’t upgraded the electrics. Power surges can easily damage appliances, wiring and are dangerous for anyone living in your home. Make sure you have adequate surge arrestor protection and ensure your solar system regularly serviced by an accredited electrician.
