Do you require a consumer unit Birmingham or the surrounding areas? Techfix Electric Limited have replaced and installed new consumer units throughout the region for over two decades. The consumer unit, traditionally known as the Fuse Board, is the most crucial part of your domestic electrical system. It sits in the heart of it all. That’s why it’s crucial to invest in a modern consumer unit that can handle the electrical requirements of the modern home. ‘Consumer unit’ is a technical term for the box that contains the circuit breakers, fuses and incoming mains electricity in the home. Due to continual improvements in electrical safety, many consumer units in the UK are out of date, yet many homeowners aren’t conscious of this. Replacing consumer units Birmingham is certainly not a job for an amateur, yet it need not break the bank.

Consumer Unit Replacement

From 2001 onwards, all of British electric installations were required to integrate residual current device (RCD) protection. Simply speaking, the main purpose is to make the unit safe when electricity is provided outdoors. If a fault occurs, the RCD device trips and cuts electricity. Even if you don’t have any outside sockets, the law says that your consumer unit must feature RCD protection for many cables that are inserted into the walls of the house, with the exception of alarm circuits. Professional installation is essential to guarantee consumer units Birmingham meet the latest 17th Edition IET Wiring Regulations.

Our Services

Experienced installers from Techfix Electric Limited will supply a fully compliant, new 17th Edition Consumer Unit. Our fitting cost includes the cost of the hardware, with appointments available 7 days per week. When the new consumer unit is fitted, the homeowner will have to notify their local authority of the upgrade — Techfix Electric Limited can process this notification on your behalf to save time and hassle. There is no charge, it is all part of our normal service. The installer will also test the consumer unit and provide you with a safety certificate, referred to as the BS7671. Please ensure you keep this certificate in a safe place for future reference.
