Many homes still have the old style fuse boards that don’t comply with current British standards. We’ll provide a replacement consumer unit with the more convenient resettable MCBs and more importantly, RCDs to protect you and your family from the dangers of electric shock and fire.
Not only does it look much neater, but the new consumer unit also makes the electrical installation much safer, as it contains MCBs for protecting the cable from over current and provides the ease of switching circuits on and off. The RCDs essentially protect you as a user of the electrical system by switching off the electricity supply within milliseconds should an earth fault be detected. That might just be you or your family inadvertently touching a live cable! Better to be safe than sorry – get RCD protection.
