It can help prevent fires from occurring and can also help prevent people from getting deadly electric shocks. With this in mind, it is a very good idea to ensure your fuse board is in good condition and our experienced electricians will be more than happy to help.

You should consider replacing your fuse board if it is looking particularly old. Other reasons to replace your fuse board include:

  • A burning smell
  • Blackened or burnt spots
  • Hissing or crackling sounds
  • Frequent breaker tripping
  • Circuit tripping when switching on appliances that use a lot of energy
  • Flickering lights
  • Sparks from wall outlets
  • Overheating appliances
  • Getting shocks when touching light switches and similar

Another reason to have a new fuse board installed is that you need more ‘ways’. An upgrade in this regard is sometimes required because households in the past would typically have fewer appliances than today, so it was not necessary at the time to have as many ‘ways’ as modern households do.

Will replacing the fuse board cause damage?

In most cases, removing a fuse board should not cause any damage to your property. However, it is still a good idea to have our electricians remove the old board because they will know how to prevent damage to the surrounding area. A professional should also always be used for safety reasons.

Any damage that is caused will likely be only minimal and superficial and easily concealed. What’s more is that the replacement board is likely to be larger than the old board and this means any holes or other blemishes can be easily covered. If you are concerned about any damage that might be caused, you should speak with our professionals about the issue first.

What is the cost of replacing the Fuse Board?

Having a new fuse board fitted is likely to cost up to around £500. Our electricians will need to conduct a survey first to evaluate the scope of the job and which materials are needed before giving you a quote.

The overall cost will be determined by factors like how many man-hours are expected to be needed and the materials that are needed. This includes materials like the fuse box itself, earthing cables, and other items like meter tails if required.

How Long Will It Take?

Replacing a fuse board is not simply a case of removing the old board and putting a new one in its place. Everything needs to be wired up correctly and this can be time-consuming. In most cases, a full working day should be allocated so there’s enough time to get the job done.

In some cases, additional upgrades like a new earthing cable will also be required and this will take more time. Don’t forget also that the job will need to be inspected and any faults repaired before the new board can be used. This is unlikely to happen when the job is done by our experienced professionals, however.

Regardless of the situation, give us a call us 07504266913 and we will be more than happy to help in any way that we can
