Surge Protection Installation & Surge Protectors





What are Surge protectors?

Surge protectors, provide a different level of protection to circuit breakers or residual current devices. They are designed to keep digital equipment safe from harmful voltage deviations such as might be experienced during lightning strikes, etc. However, less severe but damaging voltage drops, can still occur without notice often resulting from power transmission circumstances beyond your property.

A surge protector offers protection against momentary power deviations, typically characterised by lightning or other extreme weather events. They offer no protection against any following loss of power with the resultant problems of lost computer files or damage sustained on other devices.

It provides the same protection as a typical surge protector, while also providing back-up in the form of battery storage and is able to sustain power for a limited time. 

Surge protectors and UPS devices are both available to protect specific power circuits and digital equipment connected that power outlet. However, surge protection fitted at the main switchboard can protect all circuits and devices connected within the entire house.

How can we help with your Surge Protector?

Surge protection should always be considered where sensitive digital equipment is being used. Not only are repairs caused by power fluctuation often expensive, the inconvenience of being unable to use that device for an extended period, can interrupt our daily lives noticeably.

An Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) provided with a battery backup, ideally provides up to 15 minutes of power, usually sufficient to safely shutdown any computer or other equipment at risk. If a battery with a longer back up period is needed, it’s important to look at what devices will be supported and how long the battery will need to support those devices. This is quite a complex evaluation, requiring the knowledge of a trained electrician. Alliance Climate Control technicians can advise you in this regard and would be pleased to receive your invitation to provide an evaluation of your battery storage needs.

Nevertheless, whatever type of surge protection you decide on, Alliance Climate Control carry a wide range of individual power board outlet or switchboard surge protection and UPS for complete protection of your digital equipment.

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 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 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.

How to maintain your
Surge Protector

Once you have identified suitable surge protection, presumably one with a visible light indicating the surge protection feature is still enabled and working, it is important to check this status regularly, perhaps at monthly intervals, to ensure your devices are always protected.

Additionally, it is always worthy of note that if a single outlet power board is selected, the surge protector is not overloaded with several high current usage devices connected at the same time. Generally, surge protection is only required for digitally operated equipment and these generally operate with low power consumption.

If any doubt exists regarding your safety or the operation of your electrical system, Alliance Climate Control are always on call 24/7 in our radio controlled vehicles and can inspect and test your surge protection device on your concern.

If you looking for qualified electrician on any surge protection installation service, call us on 1300 488 788, we consider your safety and protection of your digital devices very important.
