Do you require a consumer unit in Sheffield or the surrounding areas? Merlx Electrical Services have replaced and installed new consumer units throughout the region for over two decades. The consumer unit, traditionally known as the Fuse Board, is the most crucial part of your domestic electrical system. It sits in the heart of it all. That’s why it’s crucial to invest in a modern consumer unit that can handle the electrical requirements of the modern home. ‘Consumer unit’ is a technical term for the box that contains the circuit breakers, fuses and incoming mains electricity in the home. Due to continual improvements in electrical safety, many consumer units in the UK are out of date, yet many homeowners aren’t conscious of this. Replacing consumer units in Sheffield is certainly not a job for an amateur, yet it need not break the bank.

Consumer Unit Replacement

From 2001 onwards, all of British electric installations were required to integrate residual current device (RCD) protection. Simply speaking, the main purpose is to make the unit safe when electricity is provided outdoors. If a fault occurs, the RCD device trips and cuts electricity. Even if you don’t have any outside sockets, the law says that your consumer unit must feature RCD protection for many cables that are inserted into the walls of the house, with the exception of alarm circuits. Professional installation is essential to guarantee consumer units in Sheffield meet the latest 17th Edition IET Wiring Regulations.

Our Services

Experienced installers from Merlx Electrical Services will supply a fully compliant, new 17th Edition Consumer Unit. Our fitting cost includes the cost of the hardware, with appointments available 7 days per week. When the new consumer unit is fitted, the homeowner will have to notify their local authority of the upgrade — Merlx Electrical Services can process this notification on your behalf to save time and hassle. There is no charge, it is all part of our normal service. The installer will also test the consumer unit and provide you with a safety certificate, referred to as the BS7671. Please ensure you keep this certificate in a safe place for future reference.
Chris was easy to contact and messaged back quickly to arrange a convenient time. He arrived on time and was friendly/professional and efficient at fitting a replacement light in my living room. I would happily hire again.

I needed some second fix works carrying out including sockets for appliances and a couple of light fittings installed including 4 spotlights. Chris was unable to install the sockets because the wall was lined with plywood (I did not make Chris aware of this) Chris did however successfully install the socket for the fire and fit the two light fittings in the dining room and landing. The spotlights in the kitchen were fitted but it doesn’t appear a hole saw was used on the newly plastered ceiling and there has been a LOT of making good to do (plaster repairs) around the fittings which isn’t ideal.

Nyall

If you have need of an electrician, look no further. Arrived within the hour, professional, courteous and was able to complete other jobs as requested. Cannot recommend him enough, top of his profession and wouldn’t hesitate to employ in the future.
Jonathan

He was punctual, polite and tidied up when he had finished, he even made a fuss of our little dog! We were having our cooker connected, having just moved in. I thought the price was a bit steep at £45, considering he was only here for ten, fifteen minutes, but appreciate that it is quite probably the going rate for the job, and we needed it doing ASAP. We would definitely ask him again if we need anything else doing, but I would get a couple of other quotes as well.
