We own your electrical fuse (sometimes called electricity supply, main fuse, service head, cut out) and the cables coming into your home so we are trained and can work on this equipment. The electrical cable entering your property is connected to your electrical fuse to ensure the correct amount of power runs safely into your property. The company you pay your electricity bills to own your electricity meter, then you own the fuse box (sometimes called trip switches) inside your property.
We can upgrade your fuse from 60amps to 80 or 100amps
It's common for older properties to have 30 or 60amp fuses. We can upgrade your fuse to 80 or 100amps. Our expert will visit you to advise what is possible at your property. Sometimes if your electricity cable going into your property isn't large enough to cope with more power, you may need a larger electricity cable installed. If you need more than a 100amp fuse please read our upgrade page.
The company you pay your electricity bills to will need to visit you to upgrade your meter tails to 25mm. They will also need to check if your meter needs upgrading to cope with the bigger fuse and more power. A qualified electrician will also need to upgrade your consumer tails going into your fuse board and ensure that your fuse board can also cope with a bigger fuse.
We usually need ten working days notice to get someone to visit you.
We will always aim to upgrade your fuse on the first visit providing everything is in place and suitable for the new fuse size. However there are occasions where we may need further visits to complete the work. Don't worry our expert will explain everything when they visit you. Common reasons for why work may be delayed could be:
Normally we try to upgrade to 100amps free of charge for most domestic properties, we’ll need to visit you (which is free of charge) to make sure. For commercial properties we will need to visit to advise on cost. Please also check with the company you pay your electricity bills to as they may charge for the upgrade of your electricity meter or meter tails.
