Ensure your switchboard meets current NZ electrical standards by having it assessed and upgraded if necessary. 
book an electrician


If your house or premises was built before the last ten years, then it’s quite likely your switchboard is due some attention. 

Not only does upgrading your switchboard increase the value of your property, but it also increases the safety of your premises. We will fit out your new board with Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCBs) and Residual Circuit Breakers (RCDs) rather than rewireable fuses, adding security as well as ease of further future upgrade.

RCD’s are particularly effective because they continually monitor the electrical current flowing along a circuit. Should anything interrupt this electrical flow, such as someone touching a live wire or faulty appliance and therefore grounding the current away from the circuit, it will automatically shut down the current. This reduces the risk of serious harm to any person or object involved in the interruption.

There are many benefits to ensuring that your switchboards meet the current New Zealand electrical standards and regulations. 

  • Peace of mind for you and your family that your home is safe
  • Keeps your electrical work up to the regulated NZ standard
  • Reduced insurance premiums
  • Correct labelling of your switchboard makes it easier to identify any issues that do arise
