Frequently asked questions

Let us answer your important questions

A: The consumer unit is the heart of your electrical system, and comes in many shapes and sizes. The unit distributes the electricity, via fuses or circuit breakers, to the different circuits such as sockets or lighting. Modern consumer units are designed to help reduce electrical risks by incorporating Residual Current Devices (RCDs). In the event if an electrical fault, these devices disconnect the electrical supply thus reducing the risk of electric shock or fire. Miniature circuit breakers also make resetting the system more convenient than replacing old style fuse-wire.

A: A Consumer Unit or Fuse board is the single most important electrical device in any building. It protects electrical appliances from damage and more importantly, human beings from electrical shock.

A: The cost of installing a new consumer unit is around £250 to £600. However, this may increase if you require an electrical installation condition report, as this normally costs around £100 to £300 depending on the size of your property.

A: 8hrs inclusive of testing and certification.

A: You should contact us if you suspect that any of the following may apply to your old fusebox

  1. The fuse-board cover is missing
  2. The fuse-board is damaged
  3. There are any exposed live parts
  4. The fuse-board is showing signs of over-heating
  5. The fuse-board is overloaded
  6. RCD protection is not provided

A: A¬†fuse box¬†and a¬†consumer unit¬†serve the¬†same¬†purpose. They distribute electricity in your house through multiple circuits and instantly turn the power off whenever a power overload occurs on one of the circuits, which is commonly known as ‚Äútripping‚ÄĚ

A: In short No. Unsafe Yes, Non-compliant with the current regulations (BS7671:2008) If the fusebox is old and has fuse wire type fuses, it is worth upgrading it, as modern ones have RCD protection built in, which will literally save your life in the event of a fault.

A: Basically speaking, any¬†consumer unit¬†without an¬†RCD¬†needs an¬†upgrade. This doesn’t always mean a whole new¬†consumer unit¬†so it is essential you speak to a registered, qualified electrician who can decide what needs to be done
