If your switchboard still has porcelain fuses, it no longer meets Australian standards. Re wireable fuses are a pain in the neck when one blows. Chances are you may not have the right gauge fuse wire on hand, and the risk of fitting the incorrect gauge fuse wire is present. Doing this will create a dangerous situation with the worst case scenario being an electrical fire.
Upgrading your switchboard will do away with old fuses, and be replaced with circuit breakers and safety switches. In the event of tripping a circuit breaker it becomes very easy to reset a fault by flicking a switch. For convenience and safety. Rest assured your family will be safe from electrocution.
All lighting and power circuits these days need to be protected by safety switches (RCD, Residual Current Device) in the event of a dangerous situation occurring, a safety switch will isolate the supply to the circuit in milliseconds. Protecting your family and home.
