Fuse board replacement and consumer unit upgrades

Fuse board replacement, mains board swap or a consumer unit upgrade. ProElec Electrical Services can keep you up to date with current electrical safety standards 2020 that would provide better protection to your electrical wiring system.  A new consumer unit will ensure your home not only conforms to current electrical safety standards, but it would also provide protection to you're family and home. Modern distribution boards/consumer units are made of a non-combustible material (metal) to prevent the fire from spreading outside of the enclosure, they contain BS EN 60898 miniature circuit breakers or better know as MCB's, if the power trips or cuts out you simply flick the switch to reset the power, these replaced the old BS 3036 rewireable fuse type (semi-enclosed). When the power cut out on this type of fuse you had to replace the fuse wire inside the enclosure (not ideal in total darkness). All new consumer units will have spare ways so if you ever need to add a new circuit you will have spare space. If you're looking to swap or upgrade to an 18th edition consumer unit or looking for some advice click here. or Call us now on: 01925 222197

Rang Lee up at ProElec and explained the job, as the lady is 92, and partially sighted. They came the next day, as they are local to us. Absolutely fine, job done and so grateful for the speedy response. Would recommend to all.

Top quality service from Lee. Instalation of the new main panel and bathroom light fittings was completed without any issues and he made sure safe working practices were followed throughout the job. Everything was explained to me regarding changes and upgrades so that I understood it all properly, and they left the work areas clean and tidy. Friendly and professional, thank you.

About old fuse boards and why they don’t comply

Many fuse boards are out of date and simply don’t comply with modern health and safety requirements.

If your fuse board or fuse box has a wooden back board, cast iron or ceramic switches, or a mixture of fuses it is likely that it dates back to before the 1960’s. Older fuse boards or fuse boxes also offer little protection from electric shock. We would recommend you have your fuse board upgraded for a new 18 edition consumer unit.

In all new build properties the IEE Wiring Regulations (18th Edition : BS 7671, Published 2018) requires circuits in domestic properties to be RCD-protected (residual-current device).

The most common being a main switch with RCBOs protecting each individual circuit. An alternative arrangement favours a main switch with two RCDs protecting separate DIN rails. If careful consideration is given as to what each bar will control in the way of upstairs and downstairs lighting and power circuits.

With a old fuse board or consumer box with re-wireable fuse wire (BS 3036) when the fuse goes you have to replace the fuse wire, this could cause a few problems especially in the dark, not only that you have got to find what fuse has blown, then have to find your screwdriver to replace it. the last thing you want to be doing is repairing a blown fuse in the dark.
