What does a Consumer Unit Do?

A consumer unit consists of the main switch, RCD's (residual current devices), and circuit breakers. The role of the consumer unit is to control the supply of electricity around the property. The RCDs are there to constantly monitor the electrical currents flowing around your home.

If any electricity flows through an unintended path, such as a person, the electricity is cut off within a fraction of a second reducing the risk and severity of any injury. Consumer units are much more convenient than the older style fuse boxes. If a circuit has tripped there is no need to replace a fuse, you can reinstate the power with the flip of a switch. Consumer units are regulated to improve fire safety.

We are Legacy Electrical


The older style fuse box has now been replaced by what is commonly now known as a consumer unit. Legacy Electrical carry out all aspects of electrical work including fuse box/ Consumer Unit replacement and upgrades across Nottingham we have a reputation for quality workmanship, excellent customer service, and competitive pricing.

What happens during a consumer unit installation?

A consumer unit should only be installed by a qualified and registered electrician. Homeowners should never attempt this themselves unless they are eligible to do so.

During a fuse board replacement, safe isolation will need to take place and power needs to be turned  off for around 4 to 6 hours. The wiring is also checked to ensure it is up to the latest UK standards. The old fuse box will then be removed, and the new RCD protected consumer unit will be installed to the required British Standards.

Before energisation, there are a series of test that needs to be performed and a check of the earth bonding to the gas and water services. Once the power is switched back on, a series of live tests need to take place. All works will be certified and registered with the NIC EIC scheme and you will receive an installation certificate on completion.

I think most people would agree that finding skilled tradespeople that communicate well and you feel you can trust and ask questions is a bit of a rare thing. But that’s exactly what you get with Legacy Electrical. As first time homeowners who had also inherited a bit of the previous owners poorly completed electrical upgrades we needed a full house electrical ‘MOT’ and also two specific repairs/correction jobs - issues from water damage and an incident earlier in the year. The team were great at communicating ahead of the work and flexible when we had to reschedule. You can tell when skilled people take pride in their work because they’re thorough but efficient and they didn’t mind me asking questions. All explained wonderfully. I’d highly recommend and it’s nice to know there are still businesses out there who do a great job as well as being friendly, helpful and professional. I think you can tell when people take pride in their work and know what they are doing - especially when they admit to you something is proving frustrating and they’re determined to resolve it! You’re in safe hands here.

Amrit fitted a few ceiling pendants and switches for me, and installed a new spot light. Great communication from initial quote request through to service, reliable and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend.

I had a positive experience interacting with and using Amrit’s services. I was pleased with a prompt initial response, clear quote, next day’s appointment, efficient work, clear payment instructions and fast provision of certificate. I would use Amrit’s services again and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
