When and why you should change your fuse box.
Fuse boxes, like many things to do with all different types of houses, can vary from building to building. Upgrading or replacing a fuse box can help to keep your home safe from electrical fires, short circuits, and power outages. It is important to ensure that you have the safest and best protection when it comes to your home and having a new, modern fuse box in place will help keep your home safe and meet requirements for new, power-hungry appliances within the home.
An old or faulty fuse box can cause many issues in the home from constantly flipping the trip switch when using high energy appliances to failing to protect from power surges and causing electrical fires. It is up to the homeowner to ensure that they have up to date home protection if they wish to be covered by their insurance in the case of fire due to a faulty fuse box.
Who should change a fuse box and how long will it take?
Changing or upgrading a fusebox should only be undertaken by a qualified professional. The process is more complicated than it looks, and a simple mistake could not only cost you your home but also your life. There are thousands of DIY sites detailing how to do it yourself but unless you truly know what you are doing you are putting yourself and your family in danger.
The process of changing a fuse box will take an average of four hours in a modern home. For houses built more than 25 years ago you will most likely need to upgrade your mains power to comply with increased power requirements which will entail installing a larger power cable to your fusebox and takes around 8-10 hours to complete.
