    I contacted GCL Electrical requesting assistance with an electrical issue that I had, they sent an electrical engineer out promptly to solve my lighting problem. Absolutely saved the day!

    What a great Company to work with. Was recommend to us by my a friend. So glad I found Marc and his team to update my existing downstairs lighting system. All looks very posh and all done within my budget. Thanks Galvanize Contracts. I'll certainly use you again!!

  • Aaron Webster

    Recently had Marc and the team complete a rewiring on my house as it was outdated, as well as adding in additional sockets and outdoor lighting. The work was completed to a high standard, on time and to the original agreed price. The team were friendly and helpful, keeping me up to date with where they were up to at different stages of the work. When they left, the house was left clean and tidy (which i have found is a rarity). I would definitely recommend them to friends and family.

    Call now for a consumer unit upgrade in Sidcup

    There are numerous reasons why upgrading your property’s fuse box may be necessary, primarily due to their ageing status and the need for modernisation. Additionally, the current requirement for Residual Current Device (RCD) protection, which your old fuse box likely lacks, is crucial for safeguarding against severe electrical shocks.

    How long does a consumer unit replacement take?

    Typically, replacing an old fuse box with a new consumer unit takes around half a day from start to finish. As every fuse box change is unique, the most convenient approach is to allocate a block of time that suits your schedule. Upon completing the upgrade, our electrician will thoroughly test all circuits, inspect the installation, and provide the necessary documents and notification of the completed work.
