Consumer Units (Fuse Boards)

Consumer units – also known as distribution boards or fuse boards – are the most important device for electrical safety in the home or workplace. A correctly functioning consumer unit will protect against electric shock and also protect cables and appliances from overload, reducing the risk of fire.

At Electrosmith, we have extensive experience of testing, replacing and upgrading all kinds of consumer units for all kinds of buildings and purposes.

Fuse Boards for Landlords

Landlords are required by law to ensure that rented properties have safe electrics when tenants move in, and that this is maintained throughout the rental period. If the property is a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO), a periodic inspection must be carried out every five years.

At Electrosmith, we work extensively with landlords to ensure the safety of the consumer units in rental properties.
