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. We can also incorporate user-friendly Energy Usage Meters to help you monitor and save on energy usage.

Have used Kenner Electrics 3 times in recent months. Very happy with their quick, reliable and friendly service. Will definitely use them again. In fact I now refer to them as "our electricians".

It's so refreshing to have a tradesman arrive when he says he's going to, do exactly what he promises to do and then clean up and replace everything that's been moved. I recommend Kenner Electrics to everyone I know.

As Vice President of the Whitehorse Mustangs basketball club, I reached out to Kenner Electrics for a quote to relocate the scoreboard at Orchard Grove Primary School. ...They came back and offered to do the work at no cost to the Club! We were gobsmacked! Their support means those hard-earned funds can now be used toward building our club.
