At RJ Lewis Electrical we are able to update old Fuse Boards, to modern day RCD protected Consumer Units. Old fuses that incorporate fuse wire can take up to 5 seconds to disconnect, if at all.
When an electrical fault (or someone getting an electric shock) occurs, RCD protected Consumer Units will detect faults in the wiring that previously went undetected and will trip out in 0.5 seconds should a fault occur.
All new work on a property that involves adding onto the existing electrical wiring needs to be compliant with the modern day regulations (RCD protected) so if you are having extra works on your home, then a new board is the ideal and safest way to guarantee it passes Building Control.
Please contact us today if you would like a free quote and any more information on consumer units.
