Fuse Box Upgrade

Fuse Box Upgrades Cardiff And Barry

A fusebox, also sometimes known as a consumer unit, should be easy to find and is where the electricity in your home is controlled and distributed.

It’s important that you know where your fusebox is in case you ever need to turn the electricity off in an emergency. It contains three things – the main switch, fuses and/or circuit breakers, and Residual Current Devices.

When it comes to fuse box upgrades, Assured Electrical Solutions is here to lend you a hand with its team of skilled electricians. Old houses mostly have age-old wiring system and now-obsolete fuse boxes which function poorly to provide enough power supply to latest devices. Even more, these fuse boxes are hardly equipped with electrical safety switches (MCBS & RCDS).

Why are these upgrades necessary for your household?

Outdated fuse boxes are highly prone to short-circuits. Their fuses are more harmful as those fuses tend to catch and spread fire easily. Also there are chances of electrical shock with these old fuse boards. Now, if you want to have peace of mind and safety in your home then a new consumer unit upgrade is necessary. The RCD electrical safety switch, available these days with the latest Consumer Units, makes it sure that you do not get electric shock or no serious physical damage occurs due to a fire breakout. An RCD safety switch shuts down the main power supply as soon as it senses the slightest hint of any power leakage from a broken wire or switch within 40ms.

More about why these upgrades are essential.

Few decades ago, your household was not furnished with tons of electrical appliances or devices. In those days, just a heater, chimney, refrigerator and oven used to do it all. So a better fuse box installation was not required. But now you have computer, cooler, vacuum cleaner, dryer, washing machine, stereos, fitness equipments, microwaves, pumps, home theatres, central room temperature controlling system and many more.
If you experience frequent power tripping then it’s most likely that your electrical equipments are in need of a fuse box upgrade. Older fuse boards are designed to supply power to a small number of kitchen or household appliances. Last but not the least, you will get the opportunity to easily restore power with the new MCBs installed in newer Consumer Units if you ever have an electrical fault.
