Upgrading a Powerboard

Power boards are often a necessity for most homes. Unfortunately, not many people pay adequate attention to them.

It’s just one of those things people only notice when it breaks down and they need it. Other times, it’s just placed out of sight and overworked.

Not to scare you, but did you know that over 350 residential houses fire outbreaks in Australia are started by electrical faults every year?

This is quite alarming, however, these faults can be greatly minimized by better electrical practices.

As it turns out, poor maintenance and incorrect usage of power boards contribute greatly to the loss of lives and a sizable number of property damage in Australia.

That said, this is part of what fuels our zeal for durable and reliable electrical services to every home and office in Australia.

We want to provide Australians with safe and effective power boards for their homes and offices and minimize fire outbreaks from electrical faults.

Maintaining safety with your power board

The power board is a panel that contains meters for the supply of electricity. Also known as an Electrical Portable Outlet Device (EPOD), this lets you plug several appliances into one electrical socket outlet.

Here are a few safety tips:

  • Do not overload your power board.
  • Place the power board in a well-ventilated environment to avoid abnormal generation and dissipation of heat.
  • Ensure that all plugs are fixed correctly.
  • Avoid trying to repair the power board yourself. You might worsen the situation and end up paying higher eventually or replacing it.
  • Be sure to use only quality power boards, extension leads, and power cables.
  • Read your electronic guides to know the amount of power – voltage – that should be used by different appliances connected to the power board.

When to replace or upgrade your power board

To ensure your power board lasts long, you’d need to stick to proper electricity practices. Regardless, at some point, you’d need to replace or at least, upgrade your power board.

The guide below should help you know when to do this –

  • You must invest in a power board upgrade if you want to purchase bigger appliances or you are looking at getting newer appliances for your home. This is to avoid overloading your old power board’s capacity.
  • Your power board needs an upgrade when your circuit breaker trips due to being connected to too many appliances. Do note that a short circuit can cause electrical fires.
  • If your power board has stayed far too long, consider an upgrade.
  • Burning electrical smell, melted fuses, a frayed cord, worn-out plug entry, and flickering lights indicate a failing power board that should be replaced or upgraded.

From booking online to the completion of the job was seamless. Ben arrived super quick and was the utmost professional and really new his stuff. He took the time to explain what the problem was and what he was going to do.

Very happy customer! I can't thank Ben, Fouad & Bradley enough for fixing an electrical fault (and dodgy wiring from times gone by) to make my home safer (as well as installing some additional points, tidying up some others and installing new interconnected smoke alarms).

Great experience, they actually turned up when they said they would. The guy took the time to look for leaks other than the obvious one, and found them. Saving us a return visit. Pricing is fair. Would definitely recommend.
