Switchboard Repairs Sydney

It’s important to keep your switchboard working without any issues. That’s why you can rely us to for switchboard repairs across Sydney.


Your switchboard is at the heart of your home or businesses’ power supply. Damage done to your switchboard is often a symptom of a much larger issue.


If your switchboard has stopped working, it’s for one of two reasons:


1) An overload has occurred. This issue occurs when your appliances use more power than your switchboard can handle. To troubleshoot this, unplug a few machines and see if that fixes the issue.


2) Defective Appliances or Wiring. This problem is a bit trickier to resolve. You’ll need to test, through trial and error, which appliance might be causing the issue. If it’s wiring, you will need a licensed electrician to take a look at the problem.


We here at AEP are committed to making sure your switchboard is repaired quickly and safely.

Switchboard Upgrade Sydney

Your electrical system is one of the most important parts of your home or business. It powers everything from your lights to your appliances and is essential for keeping your family safe. That’s why updating your electrical system with regular switchboard upgrades is important.


Switchboards are the brains of your electrical system. They control the flow of electricity throughout your home or business and protect your appliances and electronics from power surges. Over time, switchboards can wear down and become outdated. This can lead to power outages, fires, and injuries.


That’s why upgrading your switchboard every 10-15 years is important. A professional electrician from Aussie Electrical & Plumbing can assess your switchboard and recommend the best upgrade. We can also install the new switchboard and ensure it’s properly connected to your electrical system.

Frequently Asked Questions

A switchboard is a piece of electrical equipment used to control and protect an electrical system. It does this by providing a central location for connecting and disconnecting electrical circuits and providing fuses or circuit breakers to protect the circuits from overload or short circuits.

Switchboards are used in various applications, including homes, businesses, and industrial facilities. They are typically located in a central location, such as a basement or utility room.

There are many different switchboards, each designed for a specific application. Some common types of switchboards include:


  • General-purpose switchboards: These are the most common type of switchboard used in various applications.
  • Distribution switchboards: These are used to distribute power from a main power source to other parts of a building or facility.
  • Control switchboards: These control electrical equipment, such as motors and pumps.
  • Metering switchboards: These are used to measure the amount of electricity used.


Switchboards are an essential part of any electrical system. They provide a safe and efficient way to control and protect electrical circuits.

An electrical switchboard upgrade involves replacing an old switchboard with a new one that meets current safety standards and can handle the increased demand for electricity in your home or business. The upgrade may include adding new circuit breakers, updating wiring, and installing surge protection.

The cost of an electrical switchboard upgrade will vary depending on the size and complexity of your system. However, the upgrade can be a wise investment to protect your home or business from electrical hazards and ensure you have enough power to meet your needs.

Here are some of the benefits of upgrading your electrical switchboard:


  • Increased safety: A new switchboard will meet current safety standards and help to protect your home or business from electrical hazards.
  • Increased reliability: A new switchboard can handle the increased demand for electricity in your home or business, preventing outages and brownouts.
  • Peace of mind: Knowing that your electrical system is up-to-date and can handle your needs can give you peace of mind.


If you are considering an electrical switchboard upgrade, contact a qualified electrician like Aussie Electrical & Plumbing to discuss your needs and get a quote.

The life expectancy of a switchboard can vary depending on several factors, including its design, quality of construction, usage, maintenance, and environmental conditions. Generally, well-designed and properly maintained switchboards can last 20 to 30 years. However, it’s important to note that this is just an average estimate, and the actual lifespan can vary.

To ensure the longevity and reliable performance of a switchboard, it is important to:


  • Conduct regular inspections to identify any potential problems.
  • Perform preventive maintenance to keep the switchboard in good working order.
  • Replace worn-out components as soon as possible.
  • Consider environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, and exposure to dust or corrosive substances when installing and maintaining the switchboard.
  • Consult the manufacturer’s guidelines for specific instructions on how to care for your switchboard.
  • Work with qualified professionals to ensure proper installation, maintenance, and adherence to safety standards.


These guidelines can help extend your switchboard’s life and protect your investment.

A switchboard should be replaced when it can no longer meet the needs of your business. This could be due to several factors, such as:


  • The switchboard is outdated and no longer supports the latest technology.
  • The switchboard can not handle the number of calls or users that your business now has.
  • It has started to become unreliable and is experiencing frequent outages or problems.
  • The switchboard is not secure and is vulnerable to cyberattacks.


If you are experiencing any of these issues, it is time to consider replacing your switchboard. A new switchboard can provide several benefits, such as:


  • Improved reliability and uptime
  • Increased capacity to handle more calls and users
  • Support for the latest technology
  • Enhanced security features


Replacing your switchboard can be complex, so working with a qualified electrician like Aussie Electrical & Plumbing is important. We can help you choose the right switchboard and ensure the installation is done properly.
