The Fuse board, Consumer Unit or Distribution Board is the heart of your electrical system. It controls and distributes electricity around your home and business premises as well as keeping you safe.
Most modern properties and new builds will now have up to date RCD protected consumer units. A Residual Current Device (RCD) is a life -saving device which prevents you receiving a fatal electrical shock if you touch something live. It provides a level of protection that ordinary fuses or circuit breakers cannot provide.
Having a modern consumer unit fitted with RCD’s that cover all the wiring, sockets and appliances in your home and business will offer the best protection.
