Consumer Unit Fuse Box Installation Upgrade
New Consumer Unit supply and fit, including upgraded meter tails and main earth as standard inclusive of NICEIC certification and local building control notification.
Upgrading an old consumer unit to one that meets current 18th Edition wiring regulations is something that people may have to consider, especially those living in properties with old re-wireable fuse boxes.
When older consumer units were first installed we did not have the amount of electrical equipment that we now take for granted around our home. Electric cookers and showers alone require modern and substantial protection and supply, along with modern lighting circuits, power to out buildings, all electric heating systems, the list is endless. When combined the need for modern protection and the requirement for upgrading becomes obvious.
Looking for an electrical fuse box replacement? An electric fuse box upgrade can significantly improve the safety of your property, reducing the risk of electrical shocks, injuries and in extreme cases, death. Without an up to date electrical fuse box, everyone within your property is a risk of electrical injuries. Fortunately, at Altrincham Electrical Services, we offer full fuse box upgrades and replacements, ensuring that you and your property are protected against electrical faults.
When Should I Upgrade my Fuse Box?
There are a number of signs which indicate that you require an electrical fuse box replacement, some things to look out for include:
- Blown fuse(s)
- Circuit breakers tripping
- Flickering lights
- The lights dimming when another appliance is plugged in
- The property is old – this may suggest that the electrical system is also old
- Mismatched switches and parts
While these are some clear signs that you need an electric fuse box upgrade, you may also wish to upgrade your fuse box to a more convenient and modern system.
Why Should I Get an Electric Fuse Box Upgrade?
Beyond the obvious safety improvements within your property, there are further benefits to having an electrical fuse box replacement. An electrical fuse box replacement will ensure that you are complying with electrical wiring regulations providing peace of mind. Protecting your property against electrical faults (which could lead to electrical fires and shocks) will also give you further peace of mind.
As well as improved safety, a new fuse box has the potential to improve the energy efficiency of your property. This is both beneficial to the environment, and your wallet providing you with savings on your electricity bill.
How Long Does it Take to Replace a Fuse Box?
In the majority of cases, replacing a fuse box takes just a few hours, however, in some cases further work may be required. For example, in older properties, the problems may extend beyond the fuse box e.g. faulty, dated wiring. In this case, we are more than happy to assess the extent of the problems and resolve the issues. However, where there are more issues, it will take longer.
