If you want electrical work completed in your home, such as extra sockets, bathroom modifications or new wiring, you will almost definitely need an RCD (residual current device) protecting your circuit.
Older fuse boxes (also known as consumer units or distribution boards) don't have these so you may need an upgrade before work can be safely completed, as required by the regulations. We will also check your earthing and bonding, which also needs to be up to standard.
All replacement and new consumer units in a domestic property are now required to be metal (but don't let anyone tell you it's necessary when carrying out small jobs!).
We always fit surge protection as standard and RCBOs (RCD and fuse combined) protecting each circuit.
We pride ourselves in not undertaking unnecessary work at your expense and can advise of any upgrades required, whatever your plans.
