Consumer Units in Liverpool
The Customer unit (traditionally known as the Fuse Board) is the most critical part of your domestic electrical system. It sits at the heart of it all. That is why it’s essential to invest in a contemporary consumer unit which can handle the electrical requirements of the modern home.
‘Consumer unit’ is a technical expression for the box which houses the circuit breakers, fuses and incoming mains power to the home. Due to continual improvements in electrical safety, many customer units in the UK are out of date, however, many homeowners aren’t even aware of this.
CONSUMER UNIT REPLACEMENT
From 2001 onwards, all British electrical installations were required to incorporate residual current device (RCD) protection. The most important purpose is to make the unit secure when electricity is supplied outdoors. If a fault occurs, the RCD apparatus trips and cuts power. Even in the event that you don’t possess some outdoor sockets, the law says that your consumer unit must feature RCD security for many cables which are inserted into the wall of their house, with the exception of alarm circuits. Professional installation is vital to guarantee consumer units in Liverpool fulfill the latest 18th Edition IET Wiring Regulations.
