Consumer Units – What you Need to Know
When you make the decision to replace your old Consumer Units in Wigan, it is important to ensure that this job is completed by a competent electrician and that it is installed and compliant with BS7671.
Think of your fuse board as the main hub of your home or business – it acts as the nerve centre for all electrical circuitry. If the job is carried out incorrectly, the electrical wiring within property could well be in a dangerous condition, putting your family or customers at risk of electrical harm.
Here are a few reasons why you may need or want to update your consumer unit to a new
17th Edition Consumer Unit:
- You are having some other electrical work carried out and need to comply with the regulations.
- Your old Consumer Unit is overloaded and starting to cause problems for the remainder of the installation.
- Your wiring installation is in poor condition but you cannot afford a rewire, therefore changing to a 17th Edition Consumer Unit will offer some protection.
