Why upgrade your fuseboard?

Fuseboards or consumer units are essential for your and your family’s safety, whilst also being integral to your electrical circuit. Whenever a fault occurs, the protective devices (MCBs, RCDs, RCBOs, SPDs) inside the board will cut the power to either the circuit or building to prevent fires and electrical damage.

Upgrading your fuseboard is a wise choice as modern units are safer, easier to use and comply with current building regulations. You may also wish to upgrade your fuseboard or consumer unit to a larger model, which will future-proof you and be able to cope with the extra demand if you are extending your home.

At Joltify LTD we can provide you with a fixed cost for upgrading your fuseboard with no hidden fees and inform you of the advantages this would bring.

Fuseboard Installation FAQs

What is an RCD and what are the benefits?

An RCD is a Residual Current Device. It’s designed to protect against electrocution and electrical fires by cutting off the supply to a circuit when it detects a leakage of electrical current. For example, if you cut through a cable with a power tool, the power switches off, eliminating the chance of injury from electrocution.

Under the Wiring Regulations, all circuits are recommended to be protected by a 30mA RCD in most domestic situations. 

What are RCBOs and how are they different to RCDs?

RCDs can protect against electric shocks, residual currents, and earth faults. RCBOs can do what RCDs can do and can also protect a circuit from short circuits and overload. RCBOs are essentially a combination of MCBs and RCDs in a single device. RCBOs have the added benefit that if there is a fault in a single circuit, you can isolate that single circuit rather than potentially losing power to the whole property. 

    What are Surge Protection Devices and why are they recommended?

    • Surge Protection Devices (SPD) are used to protect appliances from electrical power surges. They are designed to stop power surges from reaching sensitive equipment. They are normally fitted in a fusebox/consumer unit at the time of installation to protect your appliances and electronics from electrical spikes. 
    • Most charging equipment installed before 1st September 2022 has been without SPDs, however, given that SPDs are inexpensive compared to the cost of repairing/replacing equipment that could be damaged by a power surge, Joltify recommends that SPDs are fitted with each installation.
    • From 27th September 2022, new electrical circuits must be protected by a Surge Protection Device (SPDs) unless the customer opts out of having one installed.
