Fuse Board Changes

Fuse Board Changes

Are you worried the fuse box in your house is too old and no longer complies with electrical UK regulations? Is it time to replace it with a more modern consumer unit? How long is it going to take and more specifically, how much is it going to cost?

Basically speaking, any consumer unit without an RCD needs an upgrade. This doesn’t always mean a whole new consumer unit is needed. Consumer units with wooden backs almost always need replacing as these can often date back to the 1950’s – a lot has changed since then!

How to check if your fusebox has RCD protection?

Look for a button with T or test on your consumer unit. This indicates if an RCD is present. Don’t forget to press the button to make sure your RCD is working as it should be. If it does not activate (turn off your power) or you have any concerns about it, then get in touch and one of our registered electricians will be able to help/advise you.

Consumer units, like fire alarms, need to be tested regularly to ensure they are working as they should be. Remember they are there to protect you from electrical harm.
