Consumer units explained

Consumer units are made up of several key parts that come together to help power your home. The main components are: 
  • Main switch- this switch controls the supply of electricity through your home and is switched on and off manually
  • Residual Current Devices- RCDs trip to protect you from electric shocks or injury
  • Circuit breakers- these are similar to RCDs but control specific parts of your home, usually for each room
  • Timer- not all consumer units have a timer but they are becoming more common as they allow you to set circuits to switch off at certain times
  • MCBs- MCBs trip when a circuit is overloaded and can then be reset
