In today’s time, everyone needs electricity and electrical appliances at any cost. No one can even imagine surviving a few hours without electricity. As the need increases, the desire to have more appliances and products also increases. So, to manage and monitor the electricity use, we need the right switchboard. It may be defined as a ‘ Control Panel’ of any electrical wiring or we can say it as a device which is going to control and manage electricity to various spots in a home or in a building.
But is it enough to have an old and simple switchboard in our home? ‘No’. It is recommended to get switchboard upgrade to ensure that your appliances are getting enough power to work efficiently. But why, what’s the need of doing this? Just take a look in some reasons:
Switchboard Upgrade- What’s the Need?
• Carrying Capacity: Mostly, in an old house or a building there is a switchboard or a meter house that takes care of all the wirings. But those switchboards are not capable to carry heavy voltages of new appliances. So there is a need of something new. If one can upgrade the switchboard to the new one, a homeowner doesn’t worry about your appliances getting damaged because switchboard upgrade is reliable and capable to carry the high voltages of new or modern appliances like air conditioner, refrigerator, washing machine, Television, microwave, etc.
• Prevent from Short Circuits: Outdated switchboards are highly inclined to short circuits. For removal of the tension of short circuits, we need to upgrade them. So when all electrical wires are put in same box there is a great chance of short circuit. So from preventing these kinds of problems from happening, you only need to do one thing is to upgrade the switchboard.
• Safety from Fire: If the switchboard is outdated, there is above 95% chance that the wires catch fire, which may result in the loss of your home or may put someone’s life in grave danger. Old houses mostly have old switchboards. Those switchboards tend to catch fire easily.
• Safety Switch: In older houses, flickering lights is more common. And every time when you turn on your electric appliance the light flickers and you want to check the problem but you cannot find it, in this situation it is a wise move to call a professional electrician. • Saves Money and Time: All of us want to save money and save our time at any cost. So the switchboard upgrade saves a lot of money as these are not so expensive that means a person who cannot spend much can also afford this. And when lights cutoffs it take hours and hours to get back but with upgraded version of switchboard you get power back within a few minutes.
So make sure that you go for a switchboard upgrade and keep your home and loved ones safe at all times. In today’s generation, all want to do everything in a new way, no one wants to do something in an old fashioned way. Same thing is applicable in this situation too. Fuses are old fashioned now, everyone wants to upgrade them to switchboard but the upgraded version of it.
We all want to do work properly. So, for doing electrical work properly we need a ‘professional in electrical field’. So that’s the advised that before doing any electrical work always prefer or ask the good electrician. Or always hire a professional while upgrading your switchboard. That’s safe for you and your family.
