Consumer Unit Upgrades

At Care Projects, we have carried out consumer unit upgrades for many households throughout the South West. We install high quality 18th edition consumer units that are designed to last. Our electricians are highly skilled and experienced ensuring are clients receive high quality work every time.

As NICEIC contractors, our domestic clients benefit from the NICEIC Platinum Promise, meaning they benefit from an additional £25,000 protection should anything go wrong.

How much does a consumer unit upgrade cost?

There are a few variations on cost, such as size of the consumer unit and whether new bonding need to be installed. However, the average cost of a consumer unit upgrade is between £400 and £550 including VAT.

What are the benefits to a fuse board replacement?

In short, safety and convenience. Consumer units have advanced quite a lot over the last few years to include such parts as RCD’s and more recently, surge protection. These parts add additional protection in order to protect both the property and it occupants.

Who can change a fuse board?

Whilst there are many opportunists out there offering to change consumer units at a very cheap price, it is essential that you use a qualified electrician to carry out works such as this. Besides there being a danger if the work is carried out incorrectly, the work must also be notified to building control. This can only be done by a Part P electrician.
