What Is a Fuse Board?

Fuse boards (also called consumer units) are the beating heart of your home. These vital pieces of kit manage the electricity coming into your property, and distribute it to all your sockets and switches. Most people don’t give their fuse boards a second thought – until it fails! As well as powering all your devices and appliances, fuse boards play a critical safety role. If any of your wiring is faulty, your fuse board will protect you. As soon as there is a problem, the fuse board will trip the circuit, preventing further damage, or even fires. If you have any questions about upgrading your fuse board, call Ohms Electrical Limited’s expert electricians today. Phone 01582 932 533 or 01462 506 352, or leave us a message using our online contact form and we will get back to you.

Should I Upgrade My Fuse Board?

If you are uncertain about the age or condition of your fuse board, we would highly recommend having it checked by one of Ohms Electrical Limited’s qualified electricians. Major electrical works may require an upgraded fuse board.

Older fuse boards are more likely to malfunction. Even if your system has been regularly serviced over the years, it could be subject to general wear and tear. This can lead to inefficiencies or failures.

Outdated models may also be constructed of materials which no longer conform to modern regulations. For example, fuse board backs made of   wood or constructed in plastic pose a fire risk potentially helping it to quickly spread. A metalboard, on the other hand, will help contain a fire. We recommend that you upgrade your fire-propagating fuse board as soon as possible.

We’re here to help and make sure that you only upgrade if you need to. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ohms Electrical Limited by emailing us at hello@ohms-electrical-limited.co.uk or leaving a message online.


New fuse boards are fitted with one or more RCDs (Residual Current Devices). If you use electrical tools such as lawn mowers and hedge trimmers you are probably already familiar with RCDs. These detect any imbalances between incoming and outgoing currents, tripping the circuit if there is an electrical ‘leakage’. To check if your existing fuse board has an RCD, open the box and look for the ‘T button’. This is normally yellow, black or grey.

If your board does not have an RCD switch, we would recommend replacing it. Investing now could save you time, money and grief in the future. Remember that it is mandatory to have RCD protection if you are planning any other electrical upgrades (for example, new sockets and switches, a new electric shower or pump, or new lights). Speak to Ohms Electrical Limited today about upgrading your existing unit. Ring us on 01582 932 533 or 01462 506 352, or send us your questions using our online contact form. We will get back to you as soon as we can.
