New Fuse Boards in South East London

Our expert team at Bristone Electrical recommend that you check your fuse board to see how old it is and upgrade to a modern 17th edition consumer unit.

Old-style fuse boards in many homes are now outdated, and will offer you little to no protection against electrocution. Obviously, the safety aspect of this will be of concern to you, especially if you have young children running around your home.

There are good reasons why you should want to upgrade your outdated fuse board, not least for the safety aspect to your family. Not only will a replacement give you a greater level of safety, you will also be improving your home’s electrical efficiency.

17th edition consumer units are fitted with a residual-current device (RCD) that provides additional protection to your property. The in-built circuit breakers will also give extra protection to each single circuit you have in your home – this is especially useful should you suffer an electrical surge.
