Professional Electricians in Wigan & Leigh.Consumer Units.

Consumer Units.

At Butterworth Electrics, we are fully qualified to install or upgrade your consumer unit (fuse board). All of the boards we fit are compliant to the current regulations (currently 18th edition), are RCD protected. We always opt to use an RCBO board. With this type of board any ‘tripping’ only turns off one circuit, not half of your house.

An indication of your consumer unit needing upgrading could be for example ‘old type’ fuse wire boards, or a board without RCD protection on all the circuits.

Surge Protection Device (SPD).

As standard we fit an SPD to all consumer unit upgrades or rewires, to help to protect your equipment from any surges.
