NRG Electrical Installation Services - Consumer Units


At NRG Electrical Installation Services, we specialise in the installation and repair of any consumer units. Consumer units are highly important to the maintenance and comfort of your home as they regulate the electrical current in your home, making sure that no appliance is overloaded.


Consumer units are usually kept under the stairs and operate by stopping any electrical current in the the case of an overload, which could potentially cause damage to any appliances in your property. The consumer unit works acting as a switch that is tripped in the instance of an electrical overload. This trips the switch and cuts all power to the home until the issue is resolved. This means that your home is protected from any electrical health and safety issues that could lead to anything from minor electric shocks to out of control electrical fires.


Consumer units contain Residual Current Devices (RCD) which are the switches that trip the circuit in the event of an electrical overload. For more information on consumer units and their uses, or if you are looking to have one installed or repaired, give us a call today on 01582 513118 or 07885 212090, or send us a message through our contact page.
