Residential Consumer Unit Project by N.V. White Ltd
Consumer units often get forgotten about in peoples properties. They will continue to work without too much maintenance but it is critical the consumer unit & circuits coming out of it are checked via an approved electrical contractor at the recommended dates. The reason for upgrading to a new consumer is to protect your property & yourself, older consumer units do not have the capability. We have upgraded a lot of consumer units over the years & it is the last thing that people want to upgrade but it is the most important part of the property in terms of electricity to the building.
The old consumer unit at this property was 3 small individual ones, power, lighting & off peak supply. We provided the customer with a double stacked consumer unit, one half was a dual split RCD power & lighting for the property. The other half was off peak. We provide new meter tail cables on every consumer unit upgrade we install & now with the 18th edition bringing in the surge protection devices, you can keep your circuits protected from any surges coming into your property. Surges can often break electrical items you have at your property like TV’s, cookers etc.
