Consumer Unit Upgrades

(price dependant on actual customer requirements and number of circuits).

Outdated Domestic Consumer Unit Upgrade

 

The images show upgrade progress of outdated domestic consumer unit dated 1978.

 

NJC Electrical replaced the unit for a modern and compliant unit in July 2015

The previous consumer unit had no RCD protection on circuits and only one socket circuit in the entire property!!!

 

Does your fuse board look like this??

 

After the upgrade and extra circuits added, RCBO's are used for added safety.

 

The customer now has the peace of mind that the installation is now compliant to the current standard of the IET wiring regulations BS 7671:2008 17th edition, tested and certified by a Part P, NIC approved Electrician.

Parts of the installation were approx 10yrs old with obvious new circuits added  within the last
