Installation of New Consumer Units Chester
Electrical Consumer Unit Installation
As a fully NICEIC Approved Electrical contractor, we can provide consumer unit installation services throughout the Chester and Cheshire area. We generally use Schneider consumer units for standard domestic installations however, based on space available and property type we will make the brand and type recommendations after our first site survey.
Distribution boards (also known as electrical panels or consumer units) divide the electrical power supply into circuits and provide the “breakers” for each component of your home. We ensure that all distribution boards installed by Atlas Electric are compliant with the latest electrical regulations such as being non combustible and containing the suitable RCD protection types.
Your existing consumer unit may be old and contain fuses that do not trip when overloaded, this is a serious risk to yourself and your property. Older consumer units can fail to shut down the circuit and lead to electrical fires as well as damage to appliances.
We can provide an initial inspection of the board as part of a free quote and survey and recommend the best solution for your household needs. When installing a consumer unit a fell wiring test is also carries out in the property which means that any additional faults with old or degraded wiring can be diagnosed and fixed – if required – for lasting peace of mind.
After Consumer Unit installation
After completion of a new consumer unit, Atlas Electric will provide the homeowner or landlord with an NICEIC Electrical Installation Certificate which details all of the work carried out and readings from your circuits. You can use this certificate in the future when adding more to your home or when selling your property as proof the work was carried out by a qualified electrical contractor.
