An old consumer unit is inevitably accompanied by old wiring, neither of which are ideal for the needs of modern living, being at home or in a commercial environment. With an ever-increasing number of appliances and electronic devices being used at one time, the strain on an older system makes it much less safe than a modern consumer unit.

We can give you advice on installing a new consumer unit, which will be much more sensitive than an older model, tripping out in a fraction of a second and fast enough to prevent electrocution, shutting down a circuit before anything serious happens.
