Consumer Unit (CU) / Fuse Board Installation

To be compliant with the latest regulations, old fuse boards should be replaced with a new Residual Current Device (RCD) protected, metal Consumer Unit (CU). The process takes about a day.

The price includes:

  • Testing, labelling and inspecting all circuits
  • Main earth bonding to incoming gas and water supplies (within a 2m radius of the CU)
  • Issuing relevant certificate
  • NICEIC 6-year warranty
  • Notifying building control authorities (where required)

We’ll need to power-down the property but we’ll provide a temporary supply to essential items like fridges, freezers and chair lifts (if required). Ideally, we’ll need access to all room to check sockets and electrical items.

If the CU is further than two meters away from the main water and gas supplies, we’ll quote for installing the bonding and arrange a convenient time to complete.

Existing wiring issues

Replacing your CU won’t resolve any existing wiring issues there may be. RCDs are more sensitive and trip if there are issues. This safety feature picks up faults that older units simply won’t warn you about. If the new CU trips after installation, our team at Cre8 Electricity will investigate the cause and recommend a way to resolve the issue.

Cre8 Electricity Ltd carried out a fuse board Installation and domestic electrical condition report on a property we let out. I was very pleased with the speed efficiency and quality of their work. They were able to fit mains smoke alarms on the same day which I expected to be done at another time. Just what is needed when you have tennants who want everything done yesterday. I will definitely us them again, when needed and would highly recommend.

I engaged Cre8 Electricity for various electrical works in new flat including, replacement fuse board, kitchen rewire and down lights. I cannot speak highly enough of the service provided by them; right from the start Steve provided excellent advice and in particular a solution to a tricky issue that no other supplier had come up with. He and his team, specifically Nigel, worked calmly amongst complete chaos, were respectful to me and other contractors on site and completed all work in an efficient and highly capable manner, also keeping me completely informed of any issues or further suggestions together with budgetary implications. I would not hesitate in recommending Cre8 Electricity for their workmanship, skill and exemplary customer service skills.

Cre8 Electricity carried out various electrical works on multiple properties we manage, with works including repairing and replacing faulty lights, consumer unit replacements, electrical inspections and remedial works. Cre8 went above and beyond to ensure there was no disruption to an office building, arriving at 7am. We will now look no further than Cre8 Electricity for an electrician to service the portfolio.
