Fuse Box Installation Colchester & Essex

Do you need a Fuse Box (consumer unit) changed?

Your consumer unit or fuse board as its commonly known is the single most important piece of electrical equipment in your property. Its job is to protect your installation and you.  New consumer units have built in electric shock protection and older ones just look after the cables. Under fault conditions its job is to stop electricity flowing through that circuit to stop the cables from catching fire or from you suffering a fatal shock of electricity.
