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.

I had a great experience with David, I had him installing spotlights in my new flat and he did an outstanding job! Positive attitude, clear quote and really good prices - I had to book him twice to get an extra LED installed on the wall (again, the result was ace!). Can't thank him enough, David is a reliable specialist and I will definitely book him again when needed.

His pricing is transparent and fair.I’m very pleased with David’s work and I highly recommend him. He clearly takes pride in his work and looks after his customers. He will be my first port of call for any future electrical jobs.Thank you David!

I called a lot of electricians about my job but David is the only one who didn’t try to rip me off. He came to spec the job up and was very knowledgeable. He told me exactly what he would do in advance and quoted me a fair price for the materials and labour required. He was very professional, punctual and competent in the light installations. Very happy with his work and will use again. Great job!
