Fuse Board/Consumer Unit Replacement

A new modern fuse board (consumer unit); significantly decreases the risk of fire in the house due to its ability to detect wiring faults and disconnect the electricity before any heat builds up. If your home has an old fuse board, it might be time for you to replace it.


There are several reasons why you may want to upgrade your fuse board (also known as a fuse box or consumer unit):

  1. Safety: An outdated fuse board may not be equipped with modern safety features such as RCDs (Residual Current Devices) which can protect you from electric shocks and electrical fires. Upgrading to a newer consumer unit can provide better protection for you and your family.
  2. Electrical capacity: If you have an older fuse board, it may not be able to handle the electrical demands of modern appliances and devices. An upgraded fuse board can provide greater capacity and ensure that your electrical system can handle all of your electrical needs.
  3. Compliance with regulations: Electrical regulations are constantly evolving, and an older fuse board may not be compliant with current regulations. Upgrading your consumer unit can ensure that your electrical system is up to code and that your home is safe.
  4. Home insurance requirements: Some insurance companies may require that you have a modern fuse board installed in order to qualify for coverage. Upgrading your consumer unit can help you meet these requirements and avoid any potential issues with your insurance coverage.

Overall, upgrading your fuse board can provide greater safety, increased capacity, compliance with regulations, and potentially help you meet home insurance requirements. It is recommended that you consult with a qualified electrician to determine if upgrading your consumer unit is necessary for your home.
