WHAT WE DO?

A consumer unit is a distribution board comprising a type-tested and completely coordinated assembly that controls and distributes electrical energy. Consumer units that do not meet the current wiring regulations can become dangerous depending on the load placed upon them.The consumer unit is the most important unit that all electrical contractors need to maintain on a regular basis.

At C&M, you can trust our electrical team of specialists to offer you reliable consumer unit checks. We provide consumer unit installations and servicing for all our domestic, commercial and industrial customers in and around Leicester.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

The cost of replacing your consumer unit will depend on how big your house is and the number of circuits in your house. For most homes a high integrity consumer unit that can carry 10 circuits is the best choice which costs from £450 - £650.

For larger homes that require more circuits it can cost up to £850 smaller homes can get a good quality consumer unit installed for as little as £350.

If you are looking to have a consumer unit installed in your garage or outbuilding this will typically cost £300-£450.



WHAT IS INVOLVED?

This is a job that should only be carried out by a qualified electrician. You should not attempt to do any part of this unless you are qualified to do so.

  • The old fuse box will be removed and your new RCD protected consumer unit installed all wiring will be reconnected and a thorough consumer unit installed all wiring will be reconnected and a thorough series of tests carried out prior to re energising the installation. Once satisfied, power will be reinstalled and a further series of test will be carried out.

  • All works will be certified and registered with NICIEC and building control, you will receive an installation certificate and building regulations compliance certificate.

WHAT IS PROTECTIVE BONDING?

Protective bonding reduces the risk of life-threatening electric shocks and electrical fires in your home. It is typically required in older buildings where gas and water service pipes are made from metal rather than plastic. As they age and deteriorate stray wires and plumbing can come into contact with each other and make metal appliances around your home fully charged. Occasionally it will be necessary to install or upgrade protective bonding as part of a new consumer unit installation.

DON’T RISK GETTING A FATAL ELECTRIC SHOCK

  • Better protection from electric shocks for you and your family
  • Visible protection across gas, electricity and water supplies. Helps landlords keep up to date with latest safety regulations.

Protective bonding can be installed from as little as £95+ VAT.
