    Electric Cook Top Replacement FAQs

    Switchboards distribute electricity downstream within the electrical system. There are two categories of switchboards: those that supply power directly to substantial loads and those that furnish power to panelboards, which then distribute it to cater to smaller loads.

    Enhancing your existing switchboard to handle increased electrical current or greater electrical demand is commonly known as a switchboard upgrade.

    Consider replacing a switchboard if it surpasses 25 years in age. To determine the age of your current switchboard, check for the installation date on the main switchboard panel. If the installation date is absent, indicating an outdated switchboard, replacement is recommended. Warning signs for a necessary upgrade include instances of electric shock and frequent light flickering. If inserting a plug into a power outlet results in an electric shock, it’s likely time for a switchboard replacement. Similarly, persistent light flickering may indicate loose bulbs or damaged wiring within the switchboard.

    The duration of a switchboard upgrade can extend to eight hours or more, depending on the age of the switchboard and the urgency of any issues that need to be addressed.

    Panelboards typically accommodate an incoming current of up to 1200 A and are commonly either flush-mounted or surface-mounted. Similar to panelboards, switchboards necessitate front access; however, switchboards can offer access from both the front and the back if required, and they are standalone units.

    The meter box, situated by the front door of your house, contains the switchboard, main switch, fuse box, and safety switches, all enclosed within a large box.

    Typically, the cost of upgrading an electrical switchboard in Newcastle falls within the range of $800 to $2000.
