Consumer Units / Fuse Boards
Do you need a qualified and competent electrician to install or upgrade your fuse board?
Our electricians are NICEIC registered, Part P compliant and fully insured so you can be confident in the fact that we are fully qualified and competent in providing you with a first class service.
Replacing a consumer unit in domestic premises in England or Wales is notifiable work under the Building Regulations. This means you should look for an electrician who is registered with an electrical self-certification scheme prescribed in the regulations, such as NICEIC.
New fuse boards are usually fitted with and RCD (Residual Current Device) that will instantly disconnect the electricity supply in dangerous conditions by tripping the circuit.
We will need to come to your property to carry out an estimate for you. We need to take a few things into consideration including the materials that will be needed, making sure that any pre-existing equipment complies with regulations, time involved in testing the circuits and allowance for fault finding.
Please don’t be tempted into using someone who is not a qualified electrician to carry out your consumer unit replacement. As certified electricians we must comply with strict regulations to ensure your health and safety. Paying below market value usually means that work is not carried out does not comply with these regulations.
After any new installation we will issue a certificate to ensure that work complies with all the necessary standards and regulations. We will also provide a separate certificate to ensure that work complies with Part P of the Building Regulations.
If you are thinking about having a full or part property re-wire, including the consumer unit, we will come out and carry out a FREE No Obligation Survey. You can choose to have as many sockets as you like and you can rest assured that your electrical supply is safe.
