FUSE BOARD INSTALLATION
Fuse Board Upgrades in Wirral
We can provide a free quotation to replace existing Re-wireable Fuse Boards with Consumer Units containing Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCBs) and Residual Current Devices (RCDs). These consumer units have built-in 30mA protection for the use of electrical equipment outdoors and easily re-set circuit breakers giving safe and accurate protection of circuits.
Most homes across the UK don't meet today's regulations when it comes to fuse boards. Since July 2008 the 17th edition regulations came into force and it states that all electrical circuits connected in the fuse board should be RCD protected unless the installation is maintained by a qualified electrician 24 hours a day.
PAT Testing in Wirral
Replacement of a fuse board is advisable if there is no RCD protection. This will make your property a safer place and provides protection against your appliances if a fault was to occur. Changing a fuse board normally takes between 1 and 3 hours and for most of that time the power will be off.
If you require a fuse board upgrade please get in touch and we will be happy to provide a no obligation free estimate.
Please be aware that a fuse board can only be changed if the rest of the installations meet current regulations which include, earthing systems in the property. In some cases you will have to upgrade your earth bonding, or rewire unearthed lighting circuits to meet regulations.
