Does it ever occur to us how dependent we are on several electrical appliances and equipment in our day-to-day lives? They are such an integral part of our daily activities that we have begun to take their existence for granted. The same is the case with electrical systems and installations in various settings such as homes, offices, retail stores, etc.

It is only when these installations and appliances stop working or malfunction that we begin to take notice of them. At Australia Wide Plumbing And Electrical, we always prompt our customers to call a professional electrician as soon as any switch on your property shows signs of not functioning smoothly as it should.

Signs To Look Out For

Look for signs that signal a need for switch upgrades in your home or office. Here are some of them you should be aware of:

  • Lights that don’t get switched on.
  • Lights that keep flickering.
  • Sudden shock as soon as you touch an electrical appliance or any electric iron, computer, etc.
  • Electricity continues to pass through a lighting fixture even when the switch is turned off.
  • A switch that’s very loose.
  • A buzzing sound from a switch.

Switch Installations & Upgrades-Some Aspects To Consider

As soon as you spot some irregularity in the functioning of your electrical installations, call an experienced and insured electrician to inspect all switches and fittings and identify the faults and fix them. While you do all this, there are important reasons to get new switch installations and upgrades done on your property.

  • Upgrading the switches is necessary to protect the switchboard from electrical faults that may prove dangerous if ignored.
  • The condition of the switchboard is one important factor in efficient performance and an extended lifespan of your home appliances. The function of switches is to regulate the power supply to the equipment in use and help it operate smoothly.
  • Switch upgrades keep your installations in-line with the current rules and regulations.
  • Upgrading the switches provides you a feeling of safety and peace of mind.
  • Modern equipment and appliances have higher wattage leading to higher electricity load. Electrical systems and switches that are in use for over 15 years are not built to bear this load and need upgradation and replacement of switchboards, switches, and regulators, etc.
