Fuse boards / Consumer units

Is your fuse board looking a bit out of date ?  Modern fuse boards use Miniature Circuit Breakers [MCB’s] instead of fuses. These can be reset with a flick of a switch rather than having to replace the fuse wire and also cover current regulations. We would advise you to get your house wiring checked over before changing the fuse board as the latest technology will pick up smaller faults than your old rewirable fuses did. Therefore this could cause nuisance tripping so it may be a good idea to have an electrictrical installation condition report before considering changing fuse boards. The new regulations state that by january 2016 any fuse board installed must be non combustible, this basically means it must be metal, so this will be something to consider also.
