Fuseboard upgrades

A fuseboards is also known as a consumer unit. You should make sure you know where it is in case you ever need to turn the electricity off in an emergency or on if a circuit protective devise activates.

If you live in a old house or one that hasn’t been electrically updated in a long time you may have a BS:3036 rewireable fuse board.

These old fuseboards are very dangerous when operating under faulty conditions as the fuse element sometimes splashes as it melts causing hot copper to spray around nearby objects, obviously hot copper falling on certain materials can cause fire.

No more trips to the local hardware store to buy fuse wire.

If a circuit breaker did ever trip you have the ease of just flicking the switch back to its on position.

The entirety of your electrical installation will be protected by a Residual Current Device (RCD). These are switches that trip a circuit under dangerous conditions and instantly disconnect the electricity.
