Old houses usually have older wiring systems and now obsolete fuse boxes, which do not provide enough power supply to keep up to date with latest technology. Furthermore, these fuse boxes are rarely fitted with electrical safety switches such as a Residual Current Device (RCD). Outdated fuse boxes are highly prone to short-circuits and their fuses are more harmful because they can easily catch fire.
An upgraded fuseboard will give you peace of mind that your property is electrically safe and less prone to short circuits. New fuseboards will contain three vital components:
The Main Switch – Allows you to turn off all electricity in your property
Residual Current Device (RCD) – A switch that trips the circuit if it happens to get dangerous
Circuit Breakers – A protection device that turns off a circuit if there was a fault.
