Fuse Board Change in Hastings, Eastbourne & Throughout East Sussex


Mr Powers Electrical Ltd provides a fuse board change service for property owners in Hastings, Eastbourne and the surrounding East Sussex areas. We regularly encounter homes in the region still equipped with old-style fuse boards that need replacing with modern consumer units. Not only do these newer systems offer improved protection for households, they also ensure electrical installations fully comply with the latest BS 7671 regulations. As a respected local electrician with more than 18 years of trade and industry experience, Mr Powers Electrical Ltd offers a swift, convenient and affordable replacement service.


These fuse board changes need to take place because they were not always manufactured with non-combustible materials. As a result, they represent a potential fire hazard during certain electrical malfunctions. Over time, as the components of these fuse boards deteriorate and the connections loosen, this risk only worsens.


Furthermore, since 2008, regulations have dictated that electrical systems must contain a residual circuit device (RCD) to prevent electric shocks. Older style fuse boards also lack these components.

Upgrading Your Fuse Board


If you’re unsure whether you need a fuse board change, simply contact us to arrange for an inspection at your Hastings property. A fully qualified electrician from our team will perform the necessary checks and confirm what services need undertaking to bring your system in line with up-to-date legislation along with a no-obligation quotation.


Below, we have outlined some of the signs that demonstrate the need to carry out a fuse board change:


  • If you plan to undertake a property extension, renovation or rewiring project
  • If your fuse board is over 10 years old and shows signs of deteriorating fuses
  • If your older-style fuse board doesn’t have a residual circuit device (RCD)
  • If you continue to have problems such as flickering lights, overloading and unresponsive sockets
  • If your fuse board has either a wooden back, cast-iron switches, asbestos flash guards or all three
  • If you intend to rent your Hastings property but haven’t upgraded the electric systems for a long time
  • If you have wiring in poor condition, a fuse board change offers protection until rewiring can take place


As your electrician of choice, we either perform a fuse board change as a standalone service, or as part of a larger electrical system project. Homeowners in Hastings and the neighbouring areas should note that during any upgrade, we need to switch off power for the household.


We work with minimal disruption, provide a swift turnaround and always perform a full round of tests after a fuse board change to check for any minor issues.


In our role as a trusted electrician, we also provide a wider range of electrical services, including emergency callouts as a 24 hour electrician.
