CONSUMER UNIT UPGRADE

consumer unit upgrade

Do you need a consumer unit upgrade?

Consumer units (or more commonly referred to as “fuse boxes”) may need to be upgraded for several reasons. The most common one is age, an old fuse box without RCD protection may not provide the safety features you need to keep your household safe.

Other reasons could include remedial works or extensions, (a lot of kitchens fitters want RCD protection before fitting a new kitchen) but mostly you will want to upgrade your consumer unit for safety reasons. We can advise you on exactly what you need for your home or any properties that you rent out.

Your own home

You will want to upgrade your consumer unit for protection against:

  • fires (if an old fuse board overheats it may catch fire)
  • Electric shocks

or just if your fuse box is full!

Consumer units for garages and outbuildings can also be installed to split the electrical system from the home.

If you are a landlord

Landlords have a legal duty to ensure that their rental property, and any electrical equipment provided, is safe before a tenancy begins and throughout its duration. This includes the consumer unit. You do need to have an RCD fitted and it should be tested every 3 months.
