Upgrade Your Switchboard for Safety and Capacity


Need a new switchboard installed at your Melbourne property? Properly installing a new switchboard is crucial for reliable power distribution when building a new home or facility. Our team at WP Electrical handles complete switchboard installation from start to finish. We calculate your electrical load needs to determine the right switchboard size to meet your capacity requirements. We then recommend and source the optimal switchboard to fit your space and budget needs.

Our electricians securely mount the switchboard and assemble all required components neatly. We connect all electrical circuits to the board safely and organise wiring cleanly. Circuit labels are applied clearly for easy identification and safety. Before commissioning, we thoroughly test the switchboard for any faults. Finally, we complete all paperwork and certification required by the council for approval.

The Power Behind Your Operations - Switchboards


Over years of use, switchboards can become outdated or inadequate for a home or facility’s electrical needs. A switchboard upgrade is likely needed if your switchboard lacks capacity for additional circuits or new appliances or still uses outdated fuses. Old switchboards also pose fire risks from deteriorated wiring and components.

We assess your existing switchboard and determine solutions that will provide robust power distribution now and into the future. Upgrades retain the existing enclosure while replacing interior components. A completely new switchboard installation is recommended for severely outdated or damaged boards.

Either way, you can count on us to size, select and install advanced equipment that meets current standards. We’ll rearrange and replace wiring and parts as required while reusing viable components. With in-depth electrical expertise, we match the ideal switchboard solution to your home or facility’s needs. Call us today for fast and safe switchboard upgrades in Melbourne.

Switchboard FAQs

Learn more about your switchboard and our services by reading our most commonly asked questions:

An electrical switchboard upgrade is essential for ensuring the safety and efficiency of your residential electrical services. Older switchboards with ceramic fuses may not provide adequate protection against electrical hazards, such as electric shock or fires. Upgrading to a modern switchboard equipped with circuit breakers and safety switches can significantly enhance the safety and reliability of your electrical system.
There are several signs that indicate your electrical switchboard may require an upgrade. These include frequent tripping of circuit breakers, flickering lights, outdated ceramic fuses, and insufficient power outlets. If your home has undergone renovations or you’ve added new appliances, your existing switchboard may not be able to handle the increased electrical demand safely. A licensed electrician in Melbourne can assess your switchboard and recommend an appropriate upgrade.
Safety switches are crucial components of a modern switchboard upgrade. They provide an additional layer of protection by quickly cutting off the power supply in the event of an electrical fault, such as a short circuit or an electric shock. By installing safety switches, you can significantly reduce the risk of electrical accidents and fires in your home. In Melbourne, it is mandatory to have safety switches installed on all electrical circuits in residential properties.
Yes, a switchboard upgrade can enhance the overall performance of your residential electrical services. By replacing outdated components and upgrading to modern circuit breakers, your electrical system can distribute power more efficiently and handle increased electrical loads. This can result in fewer tripping circuit breakers, a more stable power supply, and improved safety. Additionally, a switchboard upgrade ensures that your electrical wiring is up to current standards and can accommodate future electrical needs.
The duration of a switchboard upgrade varies depending on the complexity of your electrical system and the scope of work involved. However, most residential switchboard upgrades can be completed within a day. During the upgrade process, your electricity supply will need to be temporarily disconnected to ensure the safety of our electricians and your property. We understand the importance of minimising disruptions, and our experienced team will work efficiently to complete the upgrade and restore your power as quickly as possible.
