You have many considerations about your air conditioning installation– do you get a split system or ducted air con? Do you install it in the bedroom? The lounge? Or the entire house? Will it be a Mitsubishi or Fujitsu air-conditioner? And so on.

As well as advising you about the best type and brand of air conditioner for your home, our electricians will also advise you about the switchboard’s capacity to handle the new air conditioning system’s load. To make sure everything’s in order, it’s important we check your switchboard before we come over with your air-conditioning unit!


Prepare the switchboard for your air-conditioning installation

The switchboards in some houses, particularly those over 15 years old, don’t have the capacity to handle the load of a large air conditioning system. After all, it wasn’t that long ago when houses were wired to handle just the basics: a lighting circuit, the stove, and a few appliances.

Now we have more and more equipment for our enhanced lifestyles, we have to ensure the switchboards keep up as well.

It may be that the switchboard can handle one or two smaller air-conditioners, however a large number of split systems or a large ducted air-conditioning system can cause a significant power drain.
