Fuseboard Upgrade

Fuseboard Upgrade Services

A fuseboard upgrade involves replacing an old or outdated fuseboard with a new one.  Our City&Guilds electrician will first check that the electricity supply to your home is sufficient for the new fuseboard. 

They will then disconnect the electricity supply and remove the old fuseboard. The electrician will then install the new fuseboard and connect it to the electricity supply.

Finally, our electrician will test the new fuseboard to make sure it is working correctly. 

A certificate from the City&Guilds electrician’s testing body will be provided to confirm that the work has been carried out to a high standard.

Electrical Installation Certificate (EIC)

If you upgrade your old fusebox with us, we give you free Electrical Installation Certificates (EICs) and Minor Electrical Installation Works Certificates (MEIWCs).

As the person responsible for the safety of an electrical installation, with a declaration that the new installation, or alteration or addition, is safe to use at the time it was put into service according to City$Guilds regulations 18th edition BS7671.

The EIC is required for:

  • New installations 
  • When a new circuit or circuits are installed to an existing installation 
  • The changing of a consumer unit (distribution board) 
  • When a circuit is altered and the alteration requires changing of the protective device.

After the initial verification, once the full inspection and testing procedure has been carried out, an Electrical Installation Certificate must be completed. This is legally required.

When Should I Upgrade My Fuseboard?

One of your home's most important electrical safety devices is the fuseboard, also known as the consumer unit. This device protects your home from electric shocks and fires by breaking the circuit if too much current flows through it.

Over time, however, fuseboards can become damaged or outdated, making them less effective at protecting your home. If you're not sure whether your fuseboard needs to be upgraded, it's a good idea to give us a call on 07882246263 so that you can have it inspected by our City&Guilds electricians. 

We will be able to tell you if it meets current safety standards set by the City&Guilds regulations 18th edition BS7671 In general, however, it's a good idea to upgrade your fuseboard every 10-15 years to ensure that it is in good working condition.
