About Menai, NSW 2234
Down south in the Sutherland Shire is the suburb of Menai. Menai is situated 29 kms away from the Sydney CBD and is close to Bangor, Alfords Point and Barden Ridge. The suburb was named after Menai bridge, which is a town in Great Britain. There is a shopping centre centrally located on Menai Road which showcases some great restaurants and cafes. The suburb of Menai is a fairly new locality, with houses only being developed in the 1980s. Menai is a suburb in southern Sydney, 29 kilometres south of the Sydney central business district in the Sutherland Shire. A mainly residential area, Menai is named after Menai Bridge, a town on the Menai Straits between the Isle of Anglesey and Bangor, Wales. The area now known as Menai was originally called Bangor in 1895 by the land’s owner, a farmer named Owen Jones, after his birthplace Bangor in Wales. To avoid confusion with Bangor in Tasmania, the Postmaster General’s Office changed the suburb name to Menai in 1910. Menai Bridge in Wales lies opposite Bangor on the Menai Strait. When Menai expanded, the eastern section became Bangor again. A large part of Menai is new, having been developed only since the early 1980s, and as such, nearly all the homes have four bedrooms, dual bathrooms and double-garages and are mostly owner occupied. In fact, the region has the highest rate of home ownership in Australia, at over 70%.
Switchboard Faults & RCD Safety Switch Upgrades
We are a Menai Switchboard Upgrade, Installation & Repair Electrician near you. Safety switches protect you from electric shock. They turn off the electricity within milliseconds when a current leak is detected. This can happen if a faulty power point, wiring or electrical appliance is being used. If you have a blown fuse, or your switch clicks off with a “bang” or a “flash,” don’t touch it anymore! This is an indicator of a “hard fault” which could cause the breaker or the appliance to explode if you keep trying to close the breaker. Call us immediately for a FREE safety inspection in your Menai home on 0423 562 257.
The switchboard controls how all of the electricity is routed throughout your home, ensuring power can reach all areas of your home. However, the switchboards of the past weren’t designed to accommodate the higher electricity needs of modern appliances, as the technology didn’t exist at the time. If you have old & obsolete ceramic fuses, your switchboard may need to be upgraded to a newer model to give your appliances and other electronics the stable current they need to operate optimally. We will convert your ceramic fuses, or out dated circuit breakers to individual RCD/RCBO safety switches. Switchboards with ceramic fuses present a fire hazard with modern day electrical demands, and as such should be replaced. Ceramic fuses could put you and your family at risk of electric shock and be a fire hazard to your home. True Local Electricians Menai are Switchboard Specialists in Menai and can update your electrical panel to new circuit breaker/safety switch RCD’s. If you have Porcelain Fuse’s in your Menaiswitchboard you should upgraded as soon as possible
Other reasons to request a Free Switchboard safety inspection from us if you have:
- Hard-wired circuit breaker switchboard.
- A renovation is approaching, and you need to relocate your electrical switchboard
- Having air-conditioning installed
- Smell a smoky odor, a power outage, or the lights flickering.
- Your home has recently been revamped, and your electrical load may have increased.
- A pool pump was added
If you would like to schedule a FREE safety inspection of your switchboard in your Gymea home, phone us on 0423 562 257
Ceramic Fuses & Old Wiring need to be replaced immediately. Hazards to look out for are signs of black smoldering or any melting around the ceramic fuse and cabling entering the fuse holder. If black smolder marks are present in any of your home wiring then you should consider having your switchboard upgraded immediately to safety switches which will provide you with protection. With modern appliances requiring more power draw wattage, your old switchboard was never equipped to deal with the new power consumption demands and over time new appliances will trip, overload and possibly short circuit resulting in damaged cabling which will add to your repair costs. Do your Lights Flicker or have you noticed the lighting socket is Black/Brown when you remove the old incandescent globe? You may have fluctuation in voltage issues which you need to have inspected. Over time your voltage is increased by your supply authority making it much harder for your old switchboard to handle the changes. Adding safety switches will prevent this problem and make you and your home safer and AS3000 compliant.
RCD/RCBO – Residual Current Device/Residual Current Device Overload
An RCD has one function where by it protects and detect the circuit of any earth leakage currents in your homes electricity circuits. In other words, an RCD is protecting you against a fatal electric shock when coming into contact with exposed electric wires or copper piping. On the other hand, an RCBO provides two functions – it will protect you against earth leakage currents but will also protect the circuit in the event of an overload fault on your switchboard. An overload fault has the potential to occur when you have to too many appliances or devices running on the one safety switch which is protecting your appliances from burn out and catching fire. RCD’s & RCBO’s are usually rated from 6 to 40 amps. Typical amp requirements to expect on common circuits: 6 to 10 amps for lighting, 16 to 20 amps for power sockets, 20 to 25 amps for ovens, 32 to 40 amps for cook-top/stove. All new switchboard installations in the Sutherland Shire since 2019 must be build according to the Australian standards. This Act states that all newly installed switchboard upgrades must have RCD’s & RCBOs installed on all individual circuits.
