What you should know before your fuse box replacement:
The fuse board is critical to every home, and is quietly one of its most important items, which is why it must to be replaced by a qualified electrician.
If a fuse board becomes old, it is likely to become overloaded and may start to cause problems to wiring and outlets connected to it, at that point it must be replaced with a completely new one.
Even with an old, poorly wired installation, a new 17 edition dual R.C.D consuming unit will offer better protection and safety measures than your old fuse board.
It is also important to know the location of your fuse board, in case of emergency you may need to turn the power off.
Your fuse board should have three essential components:
1: A circuit breaker
3: A main switch
Circuit Breakers – similar to the R.C.D they are automated protection devices that switch off a circuit if they detect a fault on the installation. When they trip you can simply reset them back, but don’t forget to rectify the fault before doing that.
After replacing the existing unit, our electricians run tests to determine the quality of the new installation, and ensure that there are no persistent issues. We provide new installation certificates for each installation, in compliance with the Part P of the Building Regulations.
R.C.D – these are switches that automatically trip when dangerous conditions are detected and instantly disconnect the electricity.
Main switch – In most models this is a red switch that allows the power to be turned off.
