Consumer Unit Upgrades- by Certified Electricians

Fuse boards are also known as consumer units. They are an important component in every domestic and commercial electrical network, as they help in preventing overloading as well as other electrical problems. They also ensure the safe operation of electrical appliances and protect your property from hazards. Professional and accredited electricians should always carry out consumer unit upgrades and replacements. Our team of approved electricians can provide you with reliable and effective upgrading/replacement of your fuse board. We provide you with the latest and modern fuse boards to ensure that you comply with the latest British standards, such as the BS 7671. We are known for the most reliable and safe consumer unit installation in the UK.

Why Is Fuse Board Replacement Necessary?

Most of the old houses in the UK have a BS: 3036 fuse board which is rewireable but is outdated. These are not compatible with many electrical appliances and installations. They can be extremely risky when there is a fault. The fuse elements at times splash when they melt and spray hot copper onto nearby objects, resulting in hazards such as fire.

These old fuse boxes are also not compatible with EV (Electric Vehicle) charging points and need to be replaced with modern ones if you want to install an EV charging point. An electrician might also recommend a much larger fuse based on other reasons, such as additional load resulting from a property extension. These and many other causes may demand a fuse board replacement or upgrade.
