Benefits of a Fuse Board Upgrade
An outdated or faulty fuse box could lead to numerous problems in the home. Especially with older fuse boxes, they can become overloaded due to the demands of modern electrical usage and they will eventually need an upgrade to facilitate higher electrical usage. A fuse board upgrade or replacement provide a variety of benefits for your home. It’s always a smart decision to have one professionally installed to prevent any risks to safety or your home.
Here are a few of the benefits of upgrading or replacing your fuse box.
- Improve Safety – A new fuse box can greatly reduce the risk of electrical fires in the house due to its modern features. One of these features is wire fault detection which effectively disconnects the electricity before any heat is able to build up and cause a hazard. Another safety feature that a modern fuse box has is the Residual Current Device (RCD), which is a safety device designed to protect against personal electric shock.
- Increase Capacity – Older fuse boxes may not be able to handle the demand of modern electrical needs. The wiring also may not be in line with today’s health and safety standards. By replacing or upgrading your consumer unit, you can effectively increase the capacity of the fuse board.
