Switchboard Upgrades & Replacements

Have you ever taken a look at your electrical switchboard? With 40% of house fires cause by electrical fires and fault, now might be the time to have us take a look.

Many older homes in Canberra have original switchboards that can pose a higher risk of an electrical fire occurring. Older switchboards also increase the risk of electrical shock. Switchboards installed in new homes have electrical safety switches installed which are now mandatory and should be retrofitted on older homes to ensure the safety of your family.

Do I need to upgrade my switchboard?

Firstly – send a photo of your switchboard to the team at Climate Plus, we can advise on whether your switchboard has safety switches in place and whether you might need to consider upgrading your switchboard.

If your home has an older style switchboard with ceramic fuses then upgrading should be a priority. These switchboards are prone to overloading, posing a possible fire hazard and have no safety switches on power circuits.

Installing a new appliance? If you’re installing a new, hard wired appliance it must be installed on a safety switch, meaning you may need to upgrade your switchboard.

Extending or renovating? You need to make sure you don’t overload your existing switchboard, make sure you invest in having your switchboard up-to-date.

Be sure to give Climate Plus a call for any switchboard upgrades in Canberra, we can provide service and advice around what is the best solution for your home.

Safety switch testing

Did you know that according to the ACT Government electrical fires and faults cause 40% of house fires?

Climate Plus’ team of electricians can carry out professional testing of your homes safety switches, ensuring the switches are all working fast in the case of an electrical emergency.

Why test safety switches?

Safety switches should be tested regularly in order to ensure the switch works freely. With time, the switch can become clogged with debris, dust, cobwebs and moisture. This can cause the switch to slow or cease working. We recommend an annual check of your electrical safety switches and recommend a full test upon moving into any new property.

Do I need safety switches?

We recommend safety switches on all electrical switches. It is now legislated that every new home built has safety switches, so upgrading your old electrical switchboard will bring your home up to speed. Safety switches protect your family from electrical incidents, if you have an old, outdates switchboard you and your family may not be safe if an electrical fault occurs.

LED downlight upgrades are very commonplace in Canberra, with thousands of old style halogen lights installed before the evolution of LED’s don’t miss the opportunity to save energy and decrease your bills.

Smoke Alarms

Smoke alarms are one of the most important safety devices in your home. They’re proven to reduce the risk of death in a house fire by over 50%, but to do this, they need to be correctly installed, working and checked regularly.

Climate Plus offer smoke alarm installation, testing and maintenance to ensure the safety of you and your family.

Interconnected and hardwired

ACT Fire & Rescue recommends that where possible hardwired (with battery backup) and interconnected smoke alarms be installed. Smoke alarms should also be installed on every level of your home.

As illustrated by the image below, interconnected smoke alarms mean that if there is a fire in one part of your house, all your smoke alarms will go off simultaneously. When you really think about it, an interconnected smoke alarm system is a must-have to protect you and your family in the event of a fire.

Safety should be a priority in your home, at Climate Plus we can supply and install an interconnected smoke alarm system to put your mind at ease.
