FAQS


Do I Need A Fuse Board Replacement?

It can be tricky to know whether or not you need a new fuse board, and the truth is that only a trusted electrician can tell you if yours is in need of replacement.

As a general rule, if your fuse box is dated to be 30 years old, it is time for an upgrade.

There are a few tell tale signs that can indicate that your fuse box needs replaced:

  • You have an old style fusebox with a wooden back board or cast iron switches – these are a safety issue and should be replaced as soon as possible.
  • You don't have any RCDs (residual current devices) for wiring buried in walls, sockets circuits and outlets that might be used to plug in outdoor electrical equipment
  • You are undertaking home improvements such as a new electric shower, a home extension or a loft conversion. All additional wiring and new circuits will require additional breakers and installation.
