We Are With You Every Step of the Way

The SafeSpark team will offer advice on things such as the location of the new board, considering practicality and safety aspects. For example, if the board is in a low position making it harder to isolate a circuit a member of the SafeSpark team would offer the option of trunking up and having the consumer unit in a higher location. Along with this our experts do the smaller jobs within a consumer unit such as replacing a faulty circuit breaker.

How will I know if I need an upgrade?

Things to look out for:
  • If your Fuse Board is made from plastic – We recommend to our customers a new board change if the board is made from plastic, a combustible material. This is because it’s unsafe, due to its vulnerability to damage in an event of a fire. So, if your board is old, it might be time for an upgrade.
  • Poor wiring – Current regulations have a higher degree of security. Keep a look out for exposed cable joins, broken accessories and burning/discolouration. An EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report), would be warranted to ensure your property has the highest degree of electrical safety!
  • No 30ma RCD protection
  • Your consumer unit being older than 15 years old and potentially looks like this image.
  • Flickering lights
  • Breakers or 30ma RCD tripping
  • Burning smells

How Much Will It Cost to Upgrade a Consumer Unit?

Well, that can vary based on factors such as:
Once your upgrade is complete, you will receive a NICEIC Electrical Installation Certificate, along with the peace of mind that your home is protected with the latest advancements in electrical safety, from a team you can trust in your home.
