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:

Is Saying About Alliance

Liam came to do a service on a system previously installed by Alliance. Liam was polite and professional. A credit to the business.Thankyou.
Our airconditioner had stopped working. I contacted Alliance and the first available appointment was a week out. The booker offered to make our's a priority call and if any cancellations occurred to move our service up. I was very pleasantly... surprised that mechanism worked and we got an appointment 2 days earlier. Also turned out to be one of the hottest days of this summer. Our system has a MyAir system in front of a Daikin ducted system and we suspected the MyAir control tablet as the root cause of the failure. Hamioc from Alliance checked out the Daikin system and gave it the all clear. I expected him to stop at that point. Instead he went the extra mile and suggested he could temporarily cable in the Daikin Controller screen as a workaround until our MyAir controller system could be replaced. This all worked and to our great pleasure our aircon is up and running on this very hot day. Hamioc and Alliance provided an excellent service.read more

Fantastic fuss free install from Nam and his team. Minimal interruptions, mess cleaned up and were very courteous and professional
Great experience! All the staff are extremely professional. It’s obvious the company has invested a lot into tech and their process to give a great customer experience. Special mention to Gabriel, BJ and Zac for their help!
The whole purchase process and installation procedure were dealt with in a very professional and courteous manner. At all times we were advised about what was going to happen and the finished result met our expectation.
A good experience from start to finish! From the clear, well-explained options and process by Jake to the prompt, professional installation by Kevin, Andre, Adam and Dragan, it all ran like clockwork. And the air cons are working beautifully too!... Thank you!read more
Very engaging, helpful and professional service
Great service and detail
Got my brand new slimline Daikin installed. The whole installation went like clockwork, tidy and neat and no stress at all. Big thanks for the professional work ethic and communication from BJ, Peter the electrician, Mahran and Kim.
Liam was extremely helpful and professional completing our service.
Really great experience with Alliance Climate Control’s team. From my first call to book in an inspection and quote, through to the installation. Great communication, and care taken to ensure the air con meets the needs and challenges of our... apartment. The team who did the installation were particularly great - efficient, tidy, and clearly explained how to use and care for the unit. Would highly recommend.read more
The Alliance team of Kevin, Andre and Dragan arrived on time and completed the heater installation work promptly and efficiently. The guys were cheerful, friendly and courteous. They worked effectively to overcome any obstacles found during the job.... They were careful about cleaning up after the job and ensuring we were able to understand the operation and the follow on maintenance arrangements. Same comments apply to Tim who came during the installation and looked after the gas fitting work.Thanks Tim, Kevin, Andre and Dragan for a job well done.read more
Great service. Shannon & Zac made the arrangements. Liam did the quote. BJ, Mahran and Kim did the installation. Very efficient. On time, friendly and cleaned up properly.
Absolute professionals in their craft, you will be making the best choice by selecting Alliance Climate Control. We had multiple air conditioning companies quote for the work and Alliance were the only company to come up with an imaginative,... practical and clever solution for our air conditioning needs. Why were Alliance the only company to come up with this solution?, well that is simple, Alliances solution was the most difficult solution for an air conditioning company to complete. In an environment where demand outstrips supply, trades can name their price and pick their jobs (the easy ones). That is not the situation with Alliance they want to make the customer satisfied, by giving you the best air conditioning experience possible, even if it makes their life more difficult.From the quoting call by James, to Zac organising the job, through to BJ and the team completing a challenging install, never once asking to change to an easy solution and working tirelessly to deliver a quality product, it was the best experience I have ever had with trades. James shadowed the job from start to finish, checking we were happy at each step, nothing was too much trouble, professionalism was paramount for James and the entire Team. I have never experienced a group of installers work so hard to deliver the agreed solution, not a single deviation, complaint or awkward conversation about changing the plan, they knew they could do it and they did it.After the installation we identified 3 minor issues, Alliance held back the final invoice (without being asked to), sent their best service technician and all problems were solved in a single visit to an exceptionally high standard. James called to confirm we were satisfied and confirmed that it is OK to send through the final invoice.I will only ever use Alliance for all my air conditioning requirements, including servicing and any future installations at other properties. In a marketplace with a never ending stream of air conditioning companies to select from, it is hard to know who to pick, make the choice simple and select Alliance.read more

Shout out to Alliance Climate control. Just had BJ, Mahran & Andreas install 2 new split systems and an update to our ducted system installed a few years ago on a very hot day.They were polite, professional and cleaned up after themselves.

Zac & Shannon were on the ball and very responsive with the scheduling and payments too.read more

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.
