NEW CONSUMER UNITS
Does the photograph above look familiar? If YES then your are one of millions whom still own a rewireable Wylex fuseboard (consumer unit).
Perhaps it is time you changed that old board to a new MCB (miniture circuit breaker) board with RCD (Residual Circuit Device) protection. Example a board which protects your socket circuits and allows safe use of outdoor appliances like hedge trimmers and electric lawn mowers.
Advantages of a new consumer unit:
A new consumer unit avoids the nusiance of replacing wires or fuses, which is dangerous if the wrong fuse wire or fuse is used.
New MCB boards are more sensitive and trip out much quicker when a dangerous fault occurs.
Are LESS likely to cause a fire if installed properly by a qualified electrical contractor like Brunning Electrical Services .
Look more attractive, especially when in full view and are installed with "spare" way circuits.
Provide RCD 30ma protection for sockets for possible outside use and showers, which are both requirements of BS7671 17th Edition Amendment no 1 Wiring Regulations.
