Consumer Unit (Fuse Board) Upgrade

Image showing three fuse switches in a consumer unitConsumer units, commonly known as fuse boards or fuse boxes, are the heart of domestic electrical installations and are essential for controlling the electrical function of your home, along with ensuring its safety by detecting problems. It is crucial that your fuse board is kept in good health and upgraded in a timely manner.

Upgrading to a modern consumer unit improves efficiency and will prolong the life of your electrics whilst allowing for future home improvements such as extensions.  All new units come with an installation certificate confirming you are in line with the latest regulations.

If any of the following are true, it is likely that you have an old style consumer unit that no longer meets UK wiring regulations and should be upgraded:

  • Your house was built before 1990
  • You have had no rewiring work done in the past 10 years
  • Your current fuse board doesn’t have a residual current device (RCD)
