Update of your electrical distribution board which contains your switches and circuit breakers, you may need an upgrade if your wiring is more than twenty years old, or you find yourself constantly having to replace fuses in your home.
If your home has an old re-wire-able fuse board, or cartridge fuses, then you may need it upgrading to a new one. Your home is safest and is required to have safety switches called RCD's or RCBO's in place to protect your circuits from faults as well as MCB's protecting each individual circuit. New consumer units are now made of metal to protect against the possible spread of fire due to a fault developing within the board.
New is always better than old but not always needed, so if you are unsure then please contact us today to arrange a consultation to advise you on the condition of your consumer unit.
