Keep Safe Electrical Network

Whether you have a domestic or commercial property, ensuring electrical safety is of prime importance. Electrical hazards like shocks and fires can do irreversible damage to life and property. It is a proven fact that most of the fires in the world originate from electrical failures.

One of the reasons for electrical hazards is the traditional, outdated units which use fuses instead of circuit breakers. Both serve the same purpose: to protect your electrical network in case of a power surge. However, the primary difference is that fuses are wires, and the wire will burn and melt during a power surge or circuit overloading in order to protect your electrical circuits. Although the burning does not take that much time, it can give enough time for the surge to damage your appliances. A circuit breaker, however, trips the circuit and immediately cuts off the power supply, hence protecting your electrical circuits and appliances.

Consumer Unit Upgrades

Save Cost and Stress with Consumer Unit Replacement

When fuses get burnt to protect your circuits, they must be replaced. But before they are replaced, the fault must be traced. Fault tracing of a fuse system is considerably more complex than tracing a fault in a circuit breaker system.

Our consumer unit upgrade service aims to provide you with a modern consumer unit that protects your circuit and makes fault tracing and replacement easy. Circuit breakers do not melt and, therefore, will not need a replacement that often. Enjoy less hassle and peace of mind by installing the latest consumer units. Because fuses need to be replaced, you will also be saving your cost by upgrading your consumer unit.

Upgraded Consumer Unity Protects Modern Appliances

Many modern appliances are not built to be used with the old consumer units. They are simply incompatible with fuse boxes. Using electric ovens, dishwashers, microwave ovens, washing machines, and vacuums with fuse systems is extremely risky. Any overloading can damage your appliances partially or completely.

Consumer unit upgrades, therefore, are highly useful when it comes to modern appliances. Our fuse board upgrade service is ideal if you want to install an EV (electric vehicle) charging point at your property. EV chargers cannot run on fuse systems and require modern units.
