Your old fuse board (aka consumer unit) may appear to be doing the job just fine, but if it looks like the picture above right it could be over 50 years old! Electrical inspections are typically reccomended to be checked every 5 years, failure to do so could be risking potential fire or shock hazards and could even void insurance policies as a result.

 

The electrical equiptment we use has come a long way over the years, and the same is true for the fuse board which protects them. Modern Consumer units apply the latest 18th edition regulations in their design. The main features of which are Miniature Circuit Breakers (MCBs), and Residual Current Devices (RCD's).

 

An MCB replaces your old re-wireable or cartridge fuses, and is designed to protect circuits if an overload fault occurs. They're more user friendly and more reliable than older offerings, and can simply be reset when triggered.

 

RCDs are the main advacement as far as user safety is concerned. They work alongside MCBs as an extra higher form of protection, designed to protect the systems users by detecting even the slightest of imbalances in your system and then cutting the power within milliseconds

 

Consumer unit replacements start from around £300, which includes parts, labour, a full test and certification.

 

If you've still got an older styled fuse board or havent havd a checkup in the last 5 years, it'll be well worth getting in touch for some free advice and to discuss some options.
