Your fuse board or fuse box is actually called a consumer unit. It is a vital part of your electrical installation. These come in all shapes and sizes with some having a higher level of protection than others. If you do not have RCD protection, then for your own safety, or that of your tenant we would advise you to upgrade.

House Rewire Customer Testimonial

Mark and his team recently did a complete rewire of a newly purchased house for me. The electrics had not been looked at in many years and the entire house needed rewiring, a new fuseboard as well as sockets and switches needing updating. The free quote I received was very fair and the job was completed on time. I would recommend Mark and his team to anyone and would definitely use them for any electrical work in the future.

Customer Testimonial for EICR Report in Edinburgh

Mark and Andy conducted an EICR of a one bedroom flat. There were a multitude of problems which presented themselves in a recently renovated bathroom, with serious faults, which were immediately disconnected. Mark advised that I should make the renovation company aware of these faults and give them an opportunity to rectify these issues. As I was on a tight schedule to prepare my property for rental, he was prepared to and able to ensure remedial work (rewire, location and correction of fault on lighting circuit, amongst many others) was carried out two days before I was due to relocate, even making rearrangements to his work schedule. In addition, Mark also carried out PAT testing and installed hardwired fire alarms and CO detectors in the flat with no damage to existing décor. His professionalism and work ethic is second to none; his work is to a very high standard and I am very grateful for his help, advice and services. I would have absolutely no hesitation in using him again, or in giving a recommendation. He really is an asset to all the electrical contractors out there.

Customer Testimonial for Electrical Inspection and Repair

EICR came twice – first of all to carry out the inspection and report on what needed to be repaired/upgraded to current letting standards. They then came to carry out the work, which had all been itemised and costed so we knew which things needed to be done now and at what cost. This was really helpful in allowing work to be phased. On both occasions, Mark and his assistant came when arranged and carried out the agreed work to a very professional standard, cleaning up afterwards. I think it is a very good idea that we paid a deposit before each visit. This provided reassurance that Mark would come as agreed and, from his point of view, it meant that we wouldn’t cancel at the last minute, having “found a better offer” (which we hadn’t!).
