In the UK many homes are still equipped with an old style fuse box. We strongly recommend that you upgrade your fuse board for a new style consumer unit. This will provide better electrical safety to your property but more importantly, your family or tenants. A consumer unit will also ensure your home is up to the current standards of the electrical regulations.
If your property has an out-dated fuse board, it would definitely be a smart decision to have a new one professionally installed. Did you know that approximately 50% of fires in UK homes are caused by electrical faults? (That’s about 21,000 per year!) Bearing that in mind, there are of course many vital reasons and benefits as to why you should upgrade or replace your old fuse box to the modern consumer unit.
The safety of our customers is very important to us, and we know that having old fuse boards and non-compliant consumer units can put the electrical safety of your home or property in danger. Modern consumer units include Residual Current Devices (RCD) which are an essential safety device that switches off electricity in a millisecond if you get an electric shock. Old fuse boxes don’t have RCDs and can take significantly longer to switch off electricity –ultimately the difference between life and death. Therefore, the installation of a new distribution board will greatly improve the electrical installation safety within your home and more importantly, protect your family or tenants from the risk of electric shock or fires.
The current 18th edition BS7671 wiring regulations of 2020 require almost all new circuits within a domestic property to be protected with a Residual Circuit Device (RCD) to prevent shocks and fires. However, many homes around the country contain fuse boards that are not compliant with these current electrical regulations. We strongly recommend that you upgrade your fuse box for a new style consumer unit if you have not already in order to be in line with these regulations and most importantly to ensure safety.
The safety of our customers is extremely important to us, and we know that having old fuse boards and non-compliant consumer units can put the electrical safety of your home or property in danger. Modern consumer units include Residual Current Devices (RCD) which are an essential safety device that switches off electricity instantly if you get an electric shock. Old fuse boxes don’t have RCDs and therefore can take significantly longer to switch off the electricity when required. The installation of a new, modern consumer unit will greatly improve the electrical installation safety within your home and more importantly, protect your family or tenants from the risk of electric shock or fires.

Jack recently installed some ceiling lights in our kitchen and we couldn’t be happier with his service. He was prompt, very friendly and the work is of an excellent standard, for a very reasonable price. We wouldn’t hesitate to call him again for further work in future- thoroughly recommended!
I asked for a Wednesday appointment to replace a pull cord which wasn’t working. Jack responded very quickly and gave me clear information on appointment time and cost. When he arrived on time, Jack was very polite and quickly solved the issue and fitted the new part. He also tested another light for me. Quick and easy and I could pay by card on the spot. I’m asking for a quote for putting in my kitchen extractor as I was impressed by the service.
Good Service, arrived on time. Friendly staff and good value.
Had these guys over for a full rewire. The pricing was competitive and the standard of work high, would 100% recommend!
Jack did a great job in a tight turnaround. We had two new circuits installed for some powerful ovens and required carving the ceiling open and chasing into the walls. It all looked great and importantly safe.
By complying with the latest regulations and ensuring your property is safe, you’ll ease your conscience, and benefit from better peace of mind – safe in the knowledge that things are safe and correct. Ensuring your electrical system is running efficiently and safely is essential. Furthermore, if you are a landlord then Unsafe Electrics could put your tenant’s life in danger and put you at risk of a significant fine, civil damages or even imprisonment, therefore upgrading your fuse board will vanish any worries concerning this.
