Fuse Board Rewires in Weybridge, Guildford, Cobham and the Surrounding Areas
Also known as the mains board or consumer unit, the fuse board is the most vital part of any electrical system. Present in domestic residences and commercial premises alike, this system is responsible for controlling the electrical supply of a property. As the central hub which houses a network or wires, the fuse board supplies electricity to subsidiary circuits throughout your property. This enables it to distribute power to the relevant circuits, such as lighting and wall sockets.
With over 30 years of combined experience, the electrical contractors and commercial electricians at our electrical company have the knowledge and skill to handle every aspect of fuse board rewires, replacements and installations.
You may have never experienced a problem with the fuse board at your current property in Cobham, Guildford or Weybridge. However, this does not mean that it is safe. This is because, over the years, updates to the minimum standards for electrical safety have become increasingly strict. In 2016, the Government added a third amendment to BS7671, stating that outdated fuse boards in domestic and commercial properties must be replaced by a 17th edition consumer unit.

The Benefits of Fuse Board Rewires and Replacements
Landlords, business owners and homeowners in Cobham, Guildford and Weybridge often come to our electrical contractors for this service because one of the miniature circuit breakers (MCBs) has blown and they cannot find a replacement. Likewise, someone may have recently purchased an old property and will call our commercial electricians to upgrade an outdated fuse board. Sometimes, our customers are carrying out an extensive property renovation or refurbishment project, and need a fuse board that can handle the demands of modern life.
Whatever the reason, a new consumer unit from our electrical company provides the following benefits:
• Fuse board rewires and replacements are a great way to futureproof your property in Cobham, Guildford, Weybridge or the surrounding areas. Our electrical contractors install brand-new consumer units that can handle any additions or changes to your property’s circuit layout, for the foreseeable future
• If your fuse board still relies heavily on the tripping effect, upgrading to one with a residual current device (RCD) provides greater protection from electric shock. If you are unsure whether your consumer unit has RCD protection, look for a button with the letter ‘T’ or the word ‘Test’, which will indicate that a RCD is present. Alternatively, contact our commercial electricians for help and advice
• The most current fuse boards have dual RCDs which each protect a group of MCBs. This ensures that the entire installation will not shut down if a fault occurs
We also undertake full and partial rewires for commercial customers throughout Surrey.
