Here at STF Electrical Ltd offers a variety of fuse board installations including:
Many properties in Liverpool and the surrounding areas still have older fuse boards powering their electrical installations. Old fuse boards are almost always accompanied by old wiring.
Neither where designed for modern day living. Increasing numbers of appliances makes older systems less safe than modern installations.
If your fuse board or fuse box has any wooden parts, cast iron or ceramic switches, or a mixture of fuses, then it is likely to date back to before the 1960s and will need replacing.
These older fuse boards offer very little in the way of protection from electric shock. Therefore we suggest upgrading to a new metallic consumer unit complete with RCD protection. These new consumer units are compliant with the latest edition of the electrical wiring regulations and offer you greater protection.
An RCD (Residual Current Device) is a safety device that switches off electricity automatically if there is a fault. RCDs are far more sensitive than normal fuses and circuit breakers. They give you a level of personal protection that ordinary fuses and circuit-breakers simply do not provide.
A consumer unit is used to distribute and control electricity around the home. People use a variety of different names for them, including:
but they are all essentially the same thing.
Many homeowners are struggling to make ends meet, and any way to save money seems like a good option when you’re strapped for cash. But DIY electrics, in particular fuse board replacement is more than just a false economy.
Apart from anything else, electricity can easily kill. Plenty of homeowners have a basic knowledge of how their electrical supply works, and that’s good knowledge to have, but don’t overestimate your abilities. Replacing a fuse board is a complicated job, and the time needed increases if you have a large number of circuits.
Please DO NOT be tempted into hiring anyone who IS NOT a qualified electrician to carry out electrical work in your home, even if they offer to carry out the work for a fraction of the price.
It’s not just the price that counts, a competent electrician will be fully qualified, Part P Registered and fully insured.
