Consumer Unit Changes (Fuse Box)


Installing fuse box in Oldham

Consumer Unit Changes in Oldham and throughout Greater Manchester

SCZ Electrical Services specialises in the repair, maintenance, fitting and upgrading of Consumer Units (commonly known as Fuse Boxes) in Domestic and Commercial buildings.

A consumer unit is the ‘fuse box’ which goes between your electricity meter and electrical circuits in your building. The modern units that are used these days do not contain fuses, but MCB’s (Miniature Circuit Breakers). MCB’s are designed to protect against overloads and short circuits and will prevent any damage to cables and equipment at the other end of a circuit.

All consumer unit (fuse box) changes, upgrades or replacements will meet current 17th Edition wiring regulations. Upgrading or replacing your fuse box might be something to consider, especially if your building has an old re-wireable consumer unit.

There are several reasons why you might require an upgrade or replacement Consumer Unit:

The consumer unit currently installed doesn’t have an RCD (Residual Current Device). An RCD is a safety device essential to your electricity circuit, it cuts off the electricity automatically in a fraction of a second if it detects any fault on your circuit, or any change in the current.
Your consumer Unit is old and has asbestos flash guards.
