Your switchboard is the electrical device that distributes electricity from the main power supply or supplies to several other smaller load circuits. This could be your home, store, or office. Every building with an electrical supply has a switchboard.

It comprises one or more panels each containing switching devices that protect and control the smaller circuits fed from it. The switchboard is the heart of your electricity supply. Therefore it needs a lot of care. 

However, many people do not know about the necessary maintenance for their switchboards. Electricians often arrive when it is too late to salvage anything, and a total replacement is required, amongst other issues.
