Switchboards are the most important part of your electrical installation. They contain all the protective equipment designed to keep you and your property safe from the hazard of electricity. Just like getting a car serviced, residential switchboards should be inspected and tested by an electrician at least once every 2 years to ensure they are up to date and are in good working order.

What you should know

Many older style homes in Melbourne are still using old-fashioned, unsafe fuse boxes with porcelain re-wireable fuses. These types of Federal fuse boards do not meet current electrical safety standards and should be replaced to ensure your home and your family are protected.

Safety switches (RDCs) are the most vital safety component of your switchboard. They are the only device that will trip in the event of an electric shock.

An easy way to identify if you have safety switches installed is to look for a 'TEST' button on the device. It will be labelled 'TEST' and if pressed should trip the device. If you have any concerns, contact our friendly team for advice.

Safety switches should be tested at least twice a year to ensure they are operating correctly.

Kenner Electrics regularly inspects and upgrades switchboards to meet current Australian Electrical Standards.

The service was incredible. It was not just the workmanship but the after service support and follow up that made the real difference. Thanks to the team from the bottom of my heart for making all our electrical problems go away and so efficiently as well.

Really appreciate the service I have received so far. Really genuine and helpful team who were able to identify problems and recommend useful solutions and work around(s) at my house. Highly recommended!
Really appreciated the quick response to my request for a quote and then the efficient and friendly sparkies that completed the job!
