Consumer Unit (or Tableau électrique in French). We’ve been really busy, so apologies it’s been a while since we last updated the blog! Currelec has just returned from a foray into France, where we needed to replace an old and badly positioned circuit breaker panel with a new (and much safer) consumer unit.
Quite a job, as the French method of wiring means that there are lots more cables coming into the consumer unit than we’re used to in the UK. It had to be done as the old unit was located in an attic, over an old and treacherous floor, whereas the new one is now downstairs in an easy to reach cupboard.
All in all, a great improvement and a few Euros well spent!
