What is a fuseboard?
A fuseboard is the box where all of your properties electrics originates from, it is in here where a fuse will blow or trip in the event of an electrical fault, other names commonly used for a fuseboard are:

How do i know if i have an old consumer unit or fuseboard?
If you have an old fusebox you will be able to identify it as modern consumer units have individual switches that can just be flicked on & off and will usually have an RCD fitted, whether that be a double width module labelled RCD protected circuits underneath or with a little test button on the front of the individual switches.
Older style fuseboards tend to have pull out fuses with fusewire inside, these can particularly be an issue if you have a problem and are not sure which circuit is affected as the only way to identify it is to pull each fuse out 1 by 1 and check the wire inside!
What will a replacement fuseboard or consumer unit do for me?
A new modern consumer unit will be equipped with a device called an RCD or Residual Current Device, this is a lifesaving device that will automatically disconnect the power if there is an electrical fault within your system and offers a vastly improved level of protection for you in the event of a fault compared with just a standalone fuse or an MCB (trip switch) on its own.
