Around 1.2 million people are injured due to electrical accidents in homes every year in the UK. There are many risks associated with the old-style consumer unit. They do not have the capabilities of the most recent systems, so electricity may not shut off so fast, causing injuries and even fatalities.
From 2001 onwards, all British electrical installations were required to feature RCD protection.
If you have an unsafe old-style fuse board, your consumer unit is not coping with demands and keeps tripping, or it is overheating, it is important to call a professional electrician. We can inspect and test your consumer unit to ensure it meets current regulations.
