Consumer unit replacement

Replacing a consumer unit is an alteration to that installation. Additions and alterations are classed as new work

 

We will only replace a consumer unit once it has been established that:
• the rating and condition of any existing equipment, including that of the distributor,will be adequate for the altered circumstances
• the earthing and bonding arrangements necessary for the safety of the alteration are adequate After

Our initial approach in planning the replacement of the consumer unit is to encourage the customer to have an Electrical Condition Report prepared on the installation in advance of the consumer unit being replaced
