    Upgrade Your Switchboard (meter box) To Avoid Danger!

    Did you know that you could have a fire hazard sitting right under your nose?

    In today’s video I share an example of a non complaint domestic switchboard. Take a special note of the corrosion around the outside of the meter box – this is due to water ingress over a prolonged period of time. You will also notice that the back of the switchboard enclosure is open, which also presents a problem.

    Both defects pose a significant electric shock and fire risk in the event of fault conditions. This is one of the main reasons as to why switchboards should be checked for integrity.

    Many different things can contribute towards issues with your switchbox including:

    as well as other hazards.

    If issues like this are present then an upgrade is necessary. Please get in touch if you would like your switchboard checked by a licensed electrician! We can call around and check it out for you! Sometimes it’s just better to be safe than sorry. It would be horrific to have an accident that could have otherwise been so easily prevented.
