Not sure if you need a Fuse board upgrade? 

The fuse board, also known as the consumer unit, is the heart of your home's electrical system. It controls the distribution of electricity throughout your property and is responsible for protecting your electrical appliances from damage caused by power surges or electrical overloads. If your fuse board is outdated or malfunctioning, it can pose a serious risk to the safety of your home and its occupants. Here are some signs that you may need to replace your fuse board:

Frequent tripping

If your fuse board frequently trips or you need to reset the circuit breaker often, this could indicate that the electrical panel is overloaded and needs to be replaced.

Burn marks or corrosion

Look for any signs of burn marks or corrosion on the fuse board. These may be an indication of damage caused by heat or moisture and could lead to a serious electrical problem.

Outdated equipment

If your fuse board is more than 20 years old, it may not be able to handle the electrical demands of modern appliances and devices. Upgrading to a new, more modern panel can help ensure your home's electrical system is up to code.

Lack of safety features

Older fuse boards may not have the same safety features as newer models. For example, if your fuse board does not have ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) or arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs), it may be time to upgrade to a newer, safer model.

Home renovations

If you are planning to undertake major home renovations or additions, your existing fuse board may not be able to handle the additional electrical load. Upgrading to a larger panel can ensure your home's electrical system can handle the increased demand.

If you notice any of these signs, it's important to have your fuse board inspected by a professional. Our electricians in Wigan are only one call away.
