A fusebox, also sometimes known as a consumer unit or a distribution board, should be easy to find and is where the electricity in your home is controlled and distributed from. The electrical intake meter will not be far from this location. It’s important that you know where your fusebox is in case you ever need to turn the electricity off in an emergency. Its main components are the main switch, fuses and/or circuit breakers, Residual Current Devices and more recently a Surge Protection Device.
