I would highly recommend Hectic Electric. The boys were friendly, efficient and professional in upgrading the switchboard at our business. We will be getting them back soon to install our solar!

When do I need to upgrade my switchboard?

If you have an older home or property, it’s more likely to have outdated and older wiring or protective devices. Whenever there is even the slightest risk of electrical fire, it’s better to be safe than sorry, so we recommend checking your switchboard at least every 18-24 months. 

Other indicators that it’s time to upgrade your switchboard are:

  • Lights flickering
  • Small electrical shocks when plugging in appliances to wall sockets

How much does a switchboard upgrade cost?

Switchboard upgrade costs generally vary between $1400 to $2400, including the cost of the switchboard itself. Your switchboard upgrade cost will be quoted to you depending on how many circuits are in your switchboard and if it needs updating from Energex. The team at Hectic Electric will consider if your switchboard is a 3-phase or single phase before giving you an affordable price for your service.
