Switchboards play a vital role in your home’s power supply. They protect your home from hazardous electric damage by cutting the power when there is an overload.
Upside Down electricians are fully qualified and know how to uncover any switchboard mystery. They’re experts when it comes to repairs, replacement, servicing and switchboard installation.

The convenience of a USB powerpoint eliminates the need for a plug when you’re charging your device.
What more could you want? Installing a USB powerpoint will also free up your existing points for other devices. The best part about charging your device on a USB point is that it charges quicker than a traditional socket because the amperage is simply higher

You can dedicate an entire powerpoint to USB outlets or you can have a combination of each. It really depends on your needs and usage requirements.

The most important thing to think about when it comes to an outdoor point is accessibility and most importantly, safe access to power. Outdoor powerpoints are built tough and our electricians can suggest the best one to withstand Australia’s harsh summers and winters.
Electrical Services FAQs

Your powerpoints will last you a long time, but it’s unfair to expect them to last forever without a little TLC. After the 20 year mark, it’s worth keeping an eye on your powerpoints. When you start to notice these, it’s time to consider a replacement:
- Cracks and damage on the outlet cover
- Movement in the socket
- Flickering lights or sparks when you plug something in
You’ve seen it on TV and in conspiracy theories, but does aluminium foil actually help to boost signals for your antenna? This might come as a surprise, but yes it does!
Wrapping aluminium around your antenna increases the surface area and conductivity. This means your TV will have a stronger signal, so you can enjoy a higher quality TV experience.
Your switchboard to your electricity is like the music conductor to an orchestra – the central hub that controls how electricity is distributed across the home. For this reason alone, you should always ensure your switchboard is well maintained and replace it when necessary.
It’s time to upgrade your switch board if you experience any of the following:
- Flickering lights
- Short-circuiting appliances
- Rewireable fuses instead of circuit breakers
- Wiring looks overcrowded
- No safety switch
- Fuse board backing panel contains asbestos
