What is a consumer unit?

A consumer unit, otherwise referred to as a fuse board acts as the control centre for a properties electrical system. Different consumer units can be used for different applications depending on the property type and size. A consumer unit usually acts as a first point of contact for querying electrical faults within a home, and its interface reflects this. With most consumer units you will expect to see a mains switch, RCD and switches for circuit breakers corresponding to different parts of the property.

What are the different types of consumer unit?

Consumer units can differ depending on the type of property. Units present in commercial properties must consider different use scenarios in addition to safety. Residential/domestic properties require a different set of requirements to detect and remedy faults.

What are the signs of a faulty consumer unit?

While most faults cannot be diagnosed easily, there are a few important things we can look out for with our consumer units to ensure their safety:

  • The physical condition of the unit is important, if you see any cracking, hear any arcing sounds, or can smell burning you should call a certified electrician to inspect the fuse box immediately.
  • If the power in your home is tripping repeatedly, this can often be a sign that an inspection is warranted
  • Periodic inspections of electrical installations should be carried out every 10 years, or every 5 years if a rental property. If your unit has not been inspected for a long period of time, for peace of mind it is best to enquire about an EICR with us.

Why would my fuse box need servicing?

A faulty consumer unit can be a fire hazard, unnecessarily inflate electric bills and interfere with the safe operation of appliances in your home or business.

Can I replace a consumer unit without an electrician?

Consulting a registered electrician is required, work must be completed to the latest safety standards and the task itself requires an understanding of the complex electrical system in your property.

How can I choose the correct consumer unit for my property?

It can be overwhelming to select the correct fuse box for your property with so many options on the market. If you are uncertain and need a helping hand, we have a wealth of experience selecting and installing consumer units in London.

Marlowe was a very professional and well-mannered electrician that fixed all the electric sockets my flat was having. He also explained and showed me what was wrong previously while fixing it. I would highly recommend their services to anyone that needs help with any electrical issues.

Excellent communication, incredibly professional service, fair prices - David and Marlowe were brilliant to work with when conducting an EICR and then undertaking the subsequent remedial works. They clearly explained what the issues were in our home (both verbally and via email) and provided all of the information we needed. Very glad to have found them and will absolutely turn to them in the future. Thank you so much!

They fixed the switch for me and was able to send someone on the same day. Initially I gave three star review due to the switch not matching to the rest of the flat and some wall paint was chipped off. However the team contacted me and kindly did a second visit and fixed issue. I really appreciate the communication and effort they put into taking care of the customer. So I amended my review to 5 star! Highly recommend the service!

Marlowe did a superb job. He arrived quickly and on time after our pet chewed through our fridge cable. He fixed the cable quickly and suggested making it extra chew-proof without me needing to ask. He tolerated my bad tea and pets and even entertained my nosy children. THIS is what small business is about. Very pleased
