Consumer Unit Replacement

Your consumer unit or fuse box is the hub of your electrical supply.
Power is divided into different circuits, usually something like
Downstairs sockets, upstairs sockets, lights, cooker etc...
It is also a vital piece of safety equipment, providing protection from electric shock, burns or even fire in the event of a fault.

As it plays such a vital role in the safety of your home, it is important to make sure that it is in good working order.
If you are worried about the reliability or age of your consumer unit and would like to know if you require a replacement, take a look at our blog post HERE

We take pride in the quality of not only our workmanship, but, also the quality of products we use
Our replacement consumer units meet 18th Edition Wiring Regulations and come with RCBO'S and Surge protection as standard.

What is an RCBO?
While most consumer units have some form of RCD protection, it was common to install what is know as split load boards.
This is essentially 1 or 2 RCD's protecting a number of circuits.
The down side to this is in the event of a fault, the whole of your homes electrics will lose power and make fault finding difficult.

With RCBO's each circuit has its own circuit breaker with built in RCD protection meaning that in the event of a fault, only the affected circuit will "trip"
