K&M Electrical are highly experienced in switchboard upgrades and new switchboard installations, for residential, commercial and industrial properties. Switchboards deliver the electricity throughout your building, they are also known as fuse boxes. Many switchboards in older properties are obsolete, functionality is poor due to overloading and often the wiring system is deteriorated and requires replacement. These switchboards do not have electrical safety switches (RCD) which is a safety concern. A new switchboard will eliminate safety and loading concerns and provide a safe and reliable power supply to your building.

If you would like to discuss the cost of upgrading your switchboard, give us a call. Once of our certified electricians can discuss the cost involved and the various options that can affect the cost before providing you with a formal quote.

Main Switchboard Upgrade Benefits


Older switchboards do not have electrical safety switches (RCD) which allow you to quickly and safely cut the mains power to the circuit affected. This can prevent or minimise damage to property and harm to a person i.e. electric shock. Re wiring can also eliminate faults and overheating therefore substantially minimising the risk of fire.


Over the years, we have increased the number of electrical appliances used i.e. computers, phone chargers, dishwashers, HVAC, heat pumps etc therefore many of the older switchboards will not be able to cope with the demands of today’s appliances. An upgrade to a new switchboard will eliminate this issue.
