Consumer Unit Replacement
 

Why would i need a new consumer unit?

 

Consumer units  or fuse boards are essentially all there is to protect persons and property from the dangers of faulty electrical installation.

Loose electrical connections can lead to overheating and fires.

Lack of RCD protection  eg RCD's, RCCB's or RCBO's can lead to electrocution if there is a fault.

Additional Surge Protection or SPDs to protect your electrical and electronic appliances cost as little as a toaster and can potentially save thousands of pounds in replacement electronic devices.

Consumer units, fuse boards, distribution boards all come in different shapes and sizes and have been built to serve different versions of the BS7671 regulations over the years.

If your not sure about the safety of your electrical installation why not have an EICR condition report, this would detail any defects in the wiring and circuit protection.
