Switchboard Upgrades





What is a Switchboard?

A Switchboard upgrades is the gateway for all electrical power to your home and the key to your electrical safety. Power from street wires or perhaps a solar system, always connects to your switchboard first. This is also where the amount of energy consumed by your household is shown on electricity usage meters together with main switches to isolate power and hot water systems and any additional isolating switches fitted. Porcelain fuses or circuit breakers ensure safe use of electricity for lighting, cooking and other functions, however, Alliance Climate Control strongly recommend replacing porcelain fuses with circuit breakers together with a safety switch to prevent damage from electrical short circuits but more importantly to ensure the safety of you and your family. A switchboard is also the place where representatives from your electricity provider record your electricity consumption every 3 months. Consequently, your switchboard should have clear access from the street. If you have or propose to erect fencing to keep your pets safe, the switchboard should be located outside the fenced area to provide easy access for the meter reader. Your switchboard should also be given primary consideration when making renovations or house improvements that are likely to affect power consumption. For instance, if you should decide to install a pool or air conditioning system, both of which require significant amounts of energy to run, a specific circuit and circuit breaker and maybe an isolator switch for each facility should be incorporated at the switchboard. Alliance Climate Control technicians can advise the best method of electrical protection for you and your home.

How can we help upgrade or repair your switchboard?

Switchboards usually go unnoticed until a problem arises such as loss of power or perhaps an appliance that repeatedly causes the safety switch to trip. However, if the problem is a faulty appliance, quarantining that article until repaired or replaced should resolve the immediate problem.

However, in the interests of good maintenance, it is also good practice to purposely “trip” or reset each circuit breaker regularly to make sure the safety device is working correctly.

If more serious symptoms are evident such as unexplained “trips” of your safety devices or any unexplained or intermittent fault experienced, Alliance Climate Control are on call 24/7 and can make a detailed inspection including an itemised report of the health of your switchboard.

In these inspections, we will inspect:

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

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

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.

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.

Alliance were excellent to work with, particularly as this was the first time I’ve had to install air-conditioning.

How can we help upgrade or repair your switchboard?

Keeping your switchboard in good order makes good sense and prevention of dust and rainwater from entering are often as simple as keeping the door closed tightly. Often insects might try to build a nest or habitat there; clear these away as soon as possible and always keep the door securely closed

Additionally, it is also a good idea to activate the circuit breakers and safety switches at least at 6 monthly intervals. This will ensure your level of protection is assured in the event a short circuit or other event causes concern for the safety of your house and family.

If you should need any assistance or experience any unexplained “trip” of your safety device, don’t hesitate to contact Alliance Climate Control, our technicians are on call 24/7 and able to take care of your problem night or day.

Does your Switchboard look like this?
When was the last time you had your Electrical inspected?

Older style switchboards, especially the type with ceramic fuses aren’t particularly conducive to modern day electrical demands and as such need replacing. Ceramic fuses, could be putting you and your family at risk or be an emergency waiting to happen. Switchboards are an essential part of your home’s electrical system. Fuse box switchboards and ceramic fuses do not comply with today’s standards. Apart from non-compliance issues they can pose a fire risk and a hazard for electrical shock.

Alliance Climate Control licensed technicians are trained to immediately recognise your existing electrical protection and regardless of your current switchboard, we can usually upgrade your switchboard from any style fuse or circuit breaker to the latest style combination safety switch circuit breaker.

Our technicians can inspect and advise the cost to upgrade your switchboard to maximise your protection at a moment’s notice.
