New Regulations are now in force for Consumer Unit / Fuse Board Replacements. It is a requirement of BS7671 that all new/replacement consumer units in dwellings should be constructed of a non combustible material e.g. steel.
NOW is a great time to upgrade the electrical safety protection in your house. Every consumer unit replacement comes with a full safety test of your home's electrical system and NO VAT to pay.
I started trading as Archer Electrical in 2003 in response to the need, for what seemed to me to be a lack, of quality electricians specialising in domestic work. My aim is to provide the very best quality of service to customers requiring an expert tradesman who they can trust with their own home and be, The Peoples Electrician.

I first joined Checkatrade in May 2006 and was one the first electricians to join in Southampton.

I remained a member until 2010 when I joined a larger firm of electricians. I have now relocated to Basingstoke and am really glad to be back with the best site for trustworthy trades. It's been a bit like coming home after a long time away.
