Discuss Landlord consumer unit in the Electrical Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net
Sounds like the electrician is trying to get more work out of you!I have just had a rental property tested. The electrician says my consumer unit needs replacing as it is not split load.i am only using 5ways of the current consumer unit and all cct,s are rcd protected. Is this correct?
In fairness there is no requirement to record the Regulation numbers against the observations in the Report.Ask for, and publish on here, the regulation numbers that it contravenes,he should have supplied you with the information in the report
Post a picture of the existing and we can go from there
I did not say there was a requirementIn fairness there is no requirement to record the Regulation numbers against the observations in the Report.
What code is placed against this issue ? As said above, any competent inspector would have noted this as a C3 at most.I am the landlord. I have an electrical background but not domestic so am unsure of the current regs. The installation is as Anthonybragg describes. All other parts of the installation have passed other than the split load issue. Seems a little over the top for five cct terraced house!
I beg to differ.How is it incorrect?The term split load is also incorrect.
