Building Control Boxes

The box itself should preferably be made of insulating material, or firmly attached to the bare ground or earth wire. All wiring must be firmly connected and properly insulated. The wall socket is protected by a circuit breaker or fuse, but it can't hurt to provide extra protection by mounting two fast-blow fuses in the control box itself, one in each heater element line and rated for the maximum current to be drawn. (UK residents will have plugs that incorporate 10amp fuses, providing the same protection up to 2400W). The bare ground or earth line should also be attached to the boiler itself.
