Is Your Home Safe?
Time to check your Electrical Switchboard.

Electrical switchboards in general, command little interest from home owners, they are usually mounted on an outside wall and frequently “out of sight, out of mind” except to check power consumption when a large bill arrives. Similarly, when purchasing a new home, the condition of the switchboard is not high on a list of priorities.

However, our modern lifestyle promotes a large range of electrical appliances being used, these often require high amounts of electrical current that older style switchboards were not designed to handle and may offer a potential risk if your switchboard has not been recently upgraded and fitted with a safety switch device.

Why should your electrical switchboard be upgraded?

All modern switchboards are required by law to have safety switches installed. These are devices that quickly switch off the power to your home in the event of a fault in an electrical circuit. Safety switches will cut power to any problem circuit, in approximately 0.03 seconds, protecting you and your home.

Current Australian electrical standards require lighting and power circuits on all new switchboards to have safety switches installed, safeguarding against electrical shock and to protect your home from electrically induced fire hazards, however, if your switchboard has not been upgraded recently, you may be in a high risk bracket.

While fuses and circuit breakers, common in older style switchboards may protect against electrical overload, these were designed for low current flow appliances. If a fuse or circuit breaker “blows” frequently, it is evident there is a problem with an appliance being used, however, fuses and circuit breakers cannot offer the level of protection provided by safety switches.

Modern appliances have the potential for higher immediate current flows, often operating in a constant “stand by” mode.

Additionally, a modern family will operate many more appliances at the same time such as TV’s, air conditioners, dishwashers, washing machines and dryers to name a few, requiring the additional protection that a safety switch offers.

If your switchboard is fitted with a safety switch and a fault occurs the safety switch automatically activates. Resetting the safety switch to restore current to the circuit is quite simple if the faulty appliance has been unplugged and disconnected from the circuit. However, if the fault still exists, the safety switch will again sense a circuit fault and cut power again until the fault has been removed.

In such cases, unplug or disconnect the most recently used appliances and reset the safety switch. Once the faulty appliance has been identified it must be quarantined from further use or be repaired by a trained professional.

If the safety switch activates due to a problem with a wired appliance such as an oven or a light circuit professional help should be called immediately before attempting to reset the safety switch again. In such cases leave the safety switch in the “off” position until professional restoration of the circuit is complete.

In the event your switchboard hasn’t been updated recently, your family and your home may be at risk and your switchboard should be checked urgently by a qualified electrician to assess your level of protection.

Offered me a very competitive price for the 3 zones ducted system. Installation is on time and done professionally
Good price and a great system, but communication was tough and noone came when they said they would so it took quite a while to complete. Overall it's a great system and I'm extremely satisfied
I want to thank the team (James, Shadi, Steven, Antony and Tomas) for their excellent job. They not only installed for our property a ducted air con system that other companies had deemed as impossible but also worked professionally with us to... ensure that we were satisfied with very details. It is the best service I have ever received and I definitely recommend the team to others.read more
Liam is super knowledgeable, on time, and friendly. He has a serviced our units 2 years in a row now, hope to have him back next year too!
Fantastic service and communication. Thank you!
B.J, Mahran, Oscar, Chris and Daniel were great. We had them install AC in 3 rooms. Very friendly and professional. Really appreciate also changing the colour of the pipe for us in the lounge to match our white walls. Highly recommend.
Gabriel was right on time,very polite and professional,servicing my Brivis Gas Central Heater System.Highly recommended.

The team from Alliance Climate Control probably answered all my questions and kept me fully informed every step of the way. The team were incredibly polite, turned up when they said they would and did a terrific job. And then they took all the... rubbish away. Yahoo. Excellent!read more
Friendly, patient and helpful. Excellent!
Matt Anderson & his dependable colleagues, Felecio and Eunos were professional in their interactions with us during their time replacing / installing the new bedroom aircon unit. They were punctual, reliable, setting their high standards in... workmanship, and showing that they cared about every aspect of their job. We would highly recommend this team & company for any future similar jobs..read more
Chris and the team took on a niche home networking job for me to cable up 12 runs across 5 rooms. Fully accredited cable installation, fantastic cable management and wouldn't rest until all cables were terminated at the patch panel and fully passed.... I couldn't be happier. I've used Alliance before for all the air-con units in the property and they came through again for a slightly different job than the norm. From the start I was consulted with on different options, fantastic communication throughout and an absolutely stellar end result. Massive thank you to Chris who was present throughout and handled the job with ease, though I know it wasn't simple. Thanks again team!read more
Difficult job, but fantastic result.
This is the second time we’ve used this business. Excellent service from start to finish. Very happy to recommend them
Adian and his offsider (apologies forgot his name) were the most professional tradesmen to ever put foot on my premises. Nothing was a problem for them and they made us feel most at ease. Because of these two I would always recommend Alliance air... conditioning to anyone. They were a credit to their organisation. 5 stars.read more
Alliance technician Hamid came to our home & thoroughly diagnosed the issues with our 8 yr old aircon system which required parts and cleaning. Hamid returned a few weeks later to complete the work to our total satisfaction. It was not cheap costing... over $4000 but the mould & dirt that was extracted from our 5 units was incredible. Extremely satisfied & will call Alliance/Hamid & his partner back every 12 mnths from now on.Heather & PeterKingsfordread more
The ACC team did a fantastic job installing our multisplit in our apartment.Aron, Andres R, Ivan T and Tommy produced high quality workmanship and consulted us where we wanted all parts located.My favourite aspects were that they made it look... good (minimising visual impact) and cleaned up after installing.I'm so happy we heard about them from neighbours. I would definitely go with them again if we needed aircon in the future.read more
Great experience with Alliance Climate Control. They were very professional from the first point of contact all the way through to the installation. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Andres and Ivan were professional, respectful and ensured that area was protected during work. And they cleaned up well at end.
Polite, efficient service.
Great experience with Alliance, have used them a few times now and always a high quality job
Hamid from Alliance was very thorough in his investigation of my HVAC issue. He checked and tested the indoor and outdoor units after he got my AC working again and was overall very pleasant to deal with.
Andre & Ivan were on time, polite, informative and installed the units as discussed and agreed, then cleaned up thoroughly when done.Great job..thanks guys.M&J
Alliance were excellent to work with, particularly as this was the first time I’ve had to install air-conditioning. James Greene managed my job with great attention and communication and the installers, Aidan and Mado, and electricians, Aaron and... Peter, were efficient while ensuring the job was done with quality in mind. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Alliance again.read more
Liam was prompt, knowledgeable and explained all the steps of what he was doing with photos along the way. Very impressed.
Fantastic service - prompt, clean and did an excellent job. B.J., Mandan and Oscar who did the work, James who did the quote, and Shannon & Zac in the office were all great and make the whole experience easy and pleasant! Will definitely call them... again!read more
