Fuse boards have a lifespan of roughly 30 years. If you have flickering lights, hear buzzing noises, or your circuit breaker is regularly tripping out, it’s probably a sign that it’s time for a fuse board replacement.

Your panel may emit a buzzing, humming noise.

Replacing an old fuse board ensures that your electricity system can handle modern electrical appliances and protects your family from electrical fires or damage to your home.

A fuse board replacement also makes your home more energy efficient, saving you money on your electricity bills.

We’ve carried out fuse board replacements throughout Scotland, upgrading customers to a modern consumer unit. New consumer units are a safer alternative to traditional fuse boxes.

Do I need a fuse board replacement?

You might need a new fuse board for the following reasons:

Your home is old

An old home could mean you have an old-fashioned fuse box that struggles to power modern electrical appliances, resulting in circuit breakers tripping frequently or blown fuses.

If you have cast iron switches and a wooden backboard, it’s probably an ancient fuse board that needs to be replaced.

Outdated fuse boards can increase the risk of electric shock or cause fires, electrical faults and accidents.

Your circuits keep tripping

If your electricity keeps tripping, it could be due to an outdated fuse box that cannot handle your electricity demand. This could lead to damage to your appliances or a fire.

Frequent tripping occurs when a circuit is overloaded by too many devices, triggering the overload protection to cut off power.

Flickering lights or buzzing sounds

If your fuse board is making a buzzing noise, you may have a loose connection in the ground circuit or a partial discharge, both of which can lead to an electrical fire.

Sparks or burning smells

Sparks or a burning smell coming from your fuse box is very serious and could cause fire, electric shock, or component damage.

You’re doing home improvements

If you are carrying out home improvements, such as a loft conversion or a new electric shower, you must upgrade your fuse board to accommodate the new wiring and circuits.

Selling your home

If you are selling your home, a fuse board replacement ensures the property is safe and could increase the value of your home.

Benefits of a replacement fuse board

A fuse board replacement protects from fires and other electrical issues, keeping your home safe and up-to-date with the latest electrical wiring regulations.

Our annual electricity consumption is rising with each passing year. New fuse boards let you add modern electrical items, such as electric car chargers, without worrying about overloading your circuits.

A replacement fuse board ensures your home is energy efficient, lowering your electricity bills and reducing your carbon footprint.


How much does it cost to replace a fuse board?

The cost of upgrading a fuse board to a new consumer unit depends on the size of your home, amp capacity and whether any additional electrical work is required.

Do I need an electrician to change a fuse board?

It is highly recommended to hire a qualified electrician to ensure the safe electrical installation of a new electrical system and to ensure your consumer unit complies with the latest electrical regulations.

Can I upgrade a fuse board myself?

Attempting an electrical panel upgrade on your own can lead to electric shock, fire hazards, and damage to your property.
