Every Home and business will have a Consumer Unit, or as it is more commonly referred to – a Fuse Box.
A consumer unit is the heart of your home electrical system, it keeps the electricity flowing and protects you when something goes wrong.
The technology within consumer units changes all the time, and it is important to keep up to date – Modern units provide a far greater level of protection over their older counter parts.
So when do you need to upgrade your consumer unit?
In an ideal world everyone would upgrade their consumer unit as soon as a newer, safer version becomes available. More realistically however good times to upgrade are when buying a house to ensure the property is as well protected as possible, when selling a house to add value, or when carrying out electrical works within the property – many electrical jobs will necessitate a fuse-board upgrade, for example a new kitchen or bathroom.
Especially old consumer units, for example ones with re-wireable fuses should really be upgraded as soon as possible as these have been redundant for decades.
The good news is that a fusebox upgrade isn’t a massive job – people are often surprised at how little it can cost given then value it adds.
