Fuseboard Upgrades

If your home has an old style Fuseboard or Consumer Unit; installed before 2008, it will probably NOT comply with 17th Edition IEE wiring regulations BS7671 so may not meet current safety standards.

Old style fuse board "" New 17th Edition fuse board
We recommend you upgrade your old Fuseboard to 17th Edition [see jargon buster] and enjoy the benefits of safeguarding your property against any electrical hazards, more room to incorporate future electrical circuits into the same Fuseboard such as extensions and additional sockets etc.
Benefits of Upgrading
  • Easy to switch power back on when it goes off due to fault
  • All circuits are RCD protected [see jargon buster]
  • No messy and fiddly rewireable fuses that might need an electrician to replace
  • Easy detection of faulty circuits
  • Shock protection

Fuseboard Upgrades for Domestic and Commercial Premises
Government figures estimate that each year there are around:

10 fatal and 2,000 non-fatal electric shock accidents in the home
19 fatal and 880 non-fatal shock accidents in the workplace

There are also about 12,500 electrical fires in homes across the UK each year.
Although many incidents are caused by faulty appliances rather than the electrical installation itself, a properly installed and well-maintained electrical system could save lives.
Cables, switches, socket-outlets and other equipment deteriorate with prolonged use, so they all need to be checked and necessary replacements or repairs made in good time.
Whilst it is relatively easy to make an electrical circuit work it is far trickier to make the circuit work safely.
To avoid the dangers that electricity can create it is essential that electrical work is carried out only by those with the correct knowledge, skill and experience in the type of electrical work to be undertaken.

In March 2006 the Electrical Safety Council published the results of their National Consumer Survey and found that:

  • 42% of consumers surveyed stated they had never had their electrics checked
  • 32% of consumers surveyed who do DIY stated they had experienced one or more electric shocks while carrying out DIY
  • 59% of people do not use qualified electricians when carrying out electrical work
  • 35% of consumers surveyed said their electrics are over 15 years old and a further 21% stated they had no idea how old they were
  • 48% of those surveyed did not know that their electrics should be checked at least every 10 years
