Why Replace Old Fuse Boards in Wanborough Houses
A fuseboard is sited where the electricity enters your home, and is the device which controls and distributes the power around your Swindon house.
A fuseboard should have two important features, a main switch (which allows you to turn off the electricity in an emergency) and Residual Current Devices (RCD) which are switches that trip a circuit which has become dangerous, preventing electrical shocks and fires. Older fuseboards do not have RCD devices, these devices are required so that a circuit is dangerous.
When there’s a problem with a fuseboard it needs a professional qualified Wanborough electrician – like those from local company Prestige Heating and Electrical Services – to deal with it.
We undertake a great many electrical fuseboard upgrades in Swindon homes, replacing hazardous old fuse boards which lack RCD protection, we install fuseboards in Swindon homes that require more electrical circuits and we can also look at repairing faults on some fuseboards.
We cover the SN4 postcode areas including postcodes, as well as Hinton Parva, Liddington and Coate.
