Professional, Structured and Efficient
Switchboards contain electrical panels which distribute power from one or more sources of power supply to another source and transmit them across different devices in your house. It is a major component to be installed and it even carries out a controlling function and acts as a protective device for the power system in your house. Many houses in Australia have outdated switchboards and do not meet Australian Standards (AS3000).
If you experience any of the following, then it is a sign that you might need to upgrade your switchboard;
– Flickering Lights
– Burning smell
– Melted fuse
– Short circuit
How much is the switchboard upgrade cost?
The cost of a switchboard upgrade, in general, will cost around $900 – $1300. This wouldn’t include any extras such as service disconnections or Level 2 Electrician work. There are other extras you may need as part of your switchboard upgrade which can be replacing the asbestos back panel, metering work, and upgrading your consumer mains.
A rough price guide for a straight panel, metering work, and upgrading your consumer mains.
– Up to 5 circuits/poles – $900
– Up to 10 circuits/poles – $1100
– Up to 15 circuits/poles – $1500
Keep in mind that three phases power = 3 poles

What they say
Just a quick word in recommending Better Electrical to any prospective customer. I used this company to install 4 split system air cons in my house. They also ended up supplying me the air con units at a better price than I could get anywhere else. Very pleased with the professionalism and quality of the work performed. They were on time, cleaned up after themselves, used drop sheets and did a terrific job. What else could I ask for. I have already recommended them to my family and friends. Thanks again!
