Many homes in and around the Manchester area still have outdated fuse boards powering their electrical installations. For nearly 20 years, our team at Proelec electrical services have been carrying out fuse board replacements (often referred to as fuse boxes or mains boards).
We provide a straight forward, honest and cost-effective approach to swapping out a fuse board, ensuring we clearly explain all of the different options available to you.
Do I need my fuse board replacing?
If your 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 and will therefore need replacing.
These older consumer boxes offer very little protection from electric shock.
What do we recommend?
We recommend that you have your fuse board upgraded to a 17th Edition Fuse Board. These fuse boxes comply with new 17th edition IEE Wiring Regulations (BS 7671: 2008) and offer you and your family greater protection.
18th Edition Fuse Boards explained
These new fuse boxes offer RCD (Residual Current Device) protection, which is now required for all circuits. This means that electricity is automatically cut-off is there is any fault in your home.
They are much more reliable and accurate than traditional circuit breakers therefore provide a much greater level of protection.

Me and my wife contacted lee, regarding doing some electrical work prior to our fitted kitchen being installed, he arrived on time, he and his team we very clean, tidy, and worked alongside other tradesmen to complete our dream kitchen. Any questions we asked were answered and explained fully, we found him very approachable, friendly, and most importantly, he quoted a very good price, and stuck to that price. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone considering any kind of electrical work in their homes. And we will definitely be using them again in the future. Great job guys.Stephen And Stephanie, Wigan
Hollymere (Extra Care Development) situated in Ellesmere Port, consisted of 71 newly constructed one-and two-bedroom apartments. K&L provided electrical installation services for 71 one-and two-bedroom apartments on the Hollymere extra care facility development in Ellesmere Port. The work completed was of a first class quality and importantly their electricians met deadlines and were responsive to program demands.Allan Wood, Ellesmere Port
K & L Electrical have worked on this retirement complex since 2008. Firstly, as a sub contractor for 10 new bungalows being built and once these were completed the organisation then asked them to carry out routine and non routine work to 99 of our other properties, our 32 bed care home and an administration building. They are pleasant electricians who are prompt, knowledgeable and tidy in their work. We will continue to use them for the foreseeable future.Danny Kenny, Wallasey
Kevin, Lee and their team did a full re wire of our house in August 2015. Their team of 5 were very efficient and complete the job within 3 days. Their work was of a high standard and the price was very reasonable. All of the team were polite and helpful, fully explained what they would do and how they would do it with as minimal disruption to us as a family as possible! We would highly recommend their team!Jennie, Stretford
