    Why should I replace my fuse board?

    • To ensure safety and prevent electrical hazards.
      Electrical faults are one of the major causes of household fires in the UK. Reports from fire investigators show a recent trend of increasing numbers of fires involving consumer units (fuse boards). Many of the fires were due to substandard cable connections which led to overheating of consumer units. The current Wiring Regulations which recommended the move from plastic consumer unit cabinets to a non-combustible material, such as steel, which will substantially reduce the risk of fire spreading.
    • To Prevent Electric shock protection – All new consumer units have an RCD, or residual current device, which is a life-saving device, designed to prevent you from getting a fatal electric shock if you ever come in contact with live parts of electricity due to faults.
    • It can also provide some protection against electrical fires. RCDs offer a level of personal protection that ordinary fuses and circuit-breakers cannot provide.
