Do You Have a Fuse Box in Your Home?
The main difference between a fuse box and a circuit breaker is that fuses are singe-use. They actually melt when the current gets too high. When a circuit trips you can simply re-set it vs the fuse that will have to be replaced. Fuse boxes can definitely be a cause for safety concerns and also be a reason that an insurance company decides not to cover your home.
Electrical panel replacements and upgrades make sense for many homeowners. 20 years ago we didn’t have as many electronics, gadgets, cell phones and computers that needed to be charged every night, modern appliances, TVs in every room, gaming equipment, etc. Take a look around your home and notice if you have to use a lot of electrical power strips to plug everything into because there are not enough outlets? The great news is we can come to your home and assess if a new electrical panel is needed.
