'Quality means doing it right when no one is looking' - Henry Ford
Far too many homes and properties still have old style fuse boards installed . We strongly recommend you have your fuse board upgraded for a new 18th edition consumer unit for safety
and convenience reasons.
This provides far more protection to your property and much more importantly, you and your family.
A new consumer unit/fuse box will bring your home up to current electrical safety standards and an important selling feature if considering selling your property

The simple fact is that some fuse boards have become a liability, and simply don’t comply with modern health and safety requirements. so if your fuse box/consumer unit is out dated it could have been installed between the 1950's and 1980's (No where near as safe as one of todays 17th edition dual RCD boards.)

The consumer unit in my 1988-built house uses fuses but has never been any problem. Is it worth spending up to several hundred pounds on replacing it with a modern unit with an RCD circuit breaker, SPD and ADFF protection.
It depends how highly you value your life, or the lives of other people who use or visit your home. An RCD (Residual Current Device) is designed to trip the power circuits in less than four-hundredths of a second, which should be quick enough to stop an electric shock from stopping a person’s heart. Your old wire fuses will take many times longer to burn out, meaning an electric shock that passes across the heart (one hand on a faulty toaster, the other on the kitchen tap, for example) is more likely to be fatal.
