Consumer Unit Replacement Solihull

The consumer unit (commonly referred to as a fuse board) is the central point at which mains electricity enters your property and distributes power to individual circuits. We strongly recommend that an EICR is carried out before a consumer unit replacement as this will highlight any problems that may occur and see if the installation is able to deal with the upgrade. The standard ones we fit are RCBO boards with integrated surge protection, these type of boards separate faults to individual circuits so if an earth fault occurs half your house doesn’t turn off like that of an RCD board.

On completion you will receive an Electrical Installation Certificate (EIC) and a building control notification from your local council.

I needed a new consumer unit and Farthing came highly recommended. It’s easy to see why James gets so many recommendations; came out promptly and quoted, the price was competitive and fair, completed the job with high standard of workmanship and was a pleasure to deal with. James also helped to fit new lights and I could not be happier. Would use Farthing again and again in the future.

James and his team were professional from the onset, l reached out for their help for a total electrical renovation of my flat while l was abroad. They conducted the work on time, on budget without any issues. As a landlord, It’s good to know that l could rely on a contractor to respect my property without my supervision and provide a superior service at reasonable rates.

James was outstanding from initial quote to coming back the next week to complete the work (replacement of smoke detectors and some lights in bathroom). Very prompt, professional, reliable and keeps work space clean, both during and at the end of the job. Highly recommend Farthing Electrical.

Ben Thomas – Dickens Heath

I needed an outside light fitting within 24 hours. I phoned various electricians and not only was James the most reasonable with his quote, he was polite, knowledgable and willing to speak at length on the phone giving advice and explaining the process. The very next day James attended my property and completed the job faultlessly, leaving no mess and spent time (in the rain!) explaining everything and double checking everything before leaving. Great job James – I will be recommending others to you!

Wanted to leave a review regarding James’ work at our house. Great communication beforehand and fabulous work for a competitive price. We are very pleased and would use Farthing Electrical again in the future!

Marianne Quantrill – Solihull

I’m so glad I found James using the Monkspath & Hillfield group- it’s no wonder why people recommend him. James has been so easy to communicate with, is really reliable and really hard working, and has done an excellent job! We are using him again for more work and would definitely recommend him for any electrical work!
