Consumer Unit Replacement – Fuseboard
There have been various developments over the years in fuse boards.
Old rewire-able fuses have been replaced with switchable versions. The latest consumer units have surge protection, RCBO or duel RCD short-circuit protection meaning the power is split in your home. If you trip out the power/lighting in one part of your property the rest will stay on allowing you to find the problem and get the power back on.
We can replace any old style of consumer unit and replace it with the latest version. Included in the price we will test and inspect the entire property making sure it it complies with the latest wiring regulations and issue you with a certificate. Your local council will be informed of the alteration.

Landlord Safety Checks – Home Testing
As a landlord you are responsible for the safety of your tenants. All wiring, fixings and appliances must be safe from electrical shock and fire.
Under the up-coming regulations, from July 2020 all new or renewed private tenancies in England will need to have all electrical installations inspected and tested by a qualified person before the start of the tenancy. They must then be inspected and tested a minimum of every five years after that, unless the safety report requires it to be done more often.
Tenancies that are already in place or ongoing will have the same rules applied to them from 1 April 2021, so they have slightly more leeway. After this point, the same rules will apply to all private tenancies in England, including HMOs.
Landlords who take on new tenants after 1st July must employ a qualified person to test all electrical fixtures and fittings prior to the new contract. They must obtain a written report of the findings, which they supply to the tenant before they occupy the property, as well as to any new tenants who request one after this point.
The local council has the power to issue a fine of up to £30,000 to landlords who refuse to comply.
