Consumer Unit Replacement

Fuseboard upgrades are required for various reasons, they may be the following:

  • The existing Fusebox is fully loaded and more outgoing ways are required
  • New consumer units offer easier resetting of devices in the event of a fault. Fuse wire is no longer needed
  • New consumer units offer greater protection with the inclusion of RCDs
  • Old fuseboxes with a wooden back no longer comply with current regulations
  • A selection of fuseboxes have been added to in a random fashion over the years

Consumer unit changes usually take a day to complete, and include:

  • A brand new consumer unit from a top quality manufacturer (generally MK or Wylex)
  • Correctly labeled with each circuit description.
  • A complete test of the existing electrical system
  • Upgrades to the earthing and bonding arrangements to meet current regulations.
  • An Electrical Installation Certificate covering the work done including a technical schedule of all the circuits
