KEEP YOU AND YOUR FAMILY SAFE!
If your fuse box (also known as a fuse board or consumer unit) is causing problems, if you can smell burning when you are close to it, or if it is mounted on wood or made of plastic, then the chances are it is now outdated. Current consumer units are housed in a metal casing and contain an RCD unit to keep you and your property safe. If you have an old fuse box that needs an upgrade, look no further than Doctor Electrical! Read more below…

If you have an older property, it is likely that at some point you will need a fuse box upgrade. As with everything electrical, regulations and safety standards improve, and old fuse boxes may well not come up to scratch. The amount of demand put on a home electrical installation has increased dramatically. Now with TV’s in most rooms, tablets, phones, computer game consoles, laptops, and other devices, the increase in your home wiring could have tripled at least. Old installations can become unsafe very quickly.
BEST TIME TO HAVE A FUSEBOX UPGRADE
If you have any building work or home renovations, this is the ideal time to have your electrical installation checked. If your fuse box is causing any issues for you, then have it reviewed. And, if it is emitting a smell, then please have it checked with urgency.
If your electrics haven’t been checked out for over ten years, then we would always recommend calling an electrician in to undertake an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) to ensure your home is safe. Your fuse box will get examined as part of this.
