Here is a question from one of our customers William who is looking to do some handyman work on the fuses in his home.
The Types Of Circuit Protection For Your Home
Plugin Circuit Breakers
Hardwired Circuit Breakers
Residual Current Device (RCD)
Combination Safety Switches/Circuit Breakers
If your house has ceramic or plug-in fuses, then you really need your fusebox upgraded to the current standards, which must be completed by a licensed electrician. If you have older-style circuit breakers or a number of breakers connected to a safety switch, then it pays to replace them with combination switches (RCBOs) for greater safety and peace of mind and to reduce nuisance tripping.
