Consumer Unit Upgrades

Electrical consumer unit are technically called fuse boxes. They consist of Miniature Circuit Breakers or MCBs which switch off or on your electrical circuits. They are specially designed to disconnect if there is any fault in the circuit.

Why Upgrade?

Many consumer units in UK are equipped with outdated or old models of fuse boxes which do not provide the same level of safety as modern ones do.

Fuse board upgrade will improve electrical safety and protect your assets and loved ones from any hazard.

Consumer unit upgrades are also required to ensure compliance with the applicable wiring regulations under British standards.

    Before you upgrade your consumer unit

    Before any fusebox consumer unit is upgraded, it has to be ensured that your current electrical circuit is adequate. For this, an EICR survey will have to be conducted. Some signs that prove you need consumer unit upgrades include:

    • An old fusebox with switches made of cast iron and wooden backing.
    • Your electric works have not witnessed any up-gradation in several years and you want to rent out your property.
    • Your electric circuit is void of RCDs (Residual Current Devices), safety devices that switches off electricity in case of a shock.
