Fuse Box Upgrades
Are your fuses constantly blowing?
Some of the older homes here in Lake County have old fuse box panels and fused services. These are antiques in the electrical world. Antiques are cool but not when it’s your electrical system.
When you compare a fuse box to an electrical panel that has circuit breakers, it just does not compare.
Modern Circuit Breaker Panels are built to far higher safety standards than outdated fuse panels. Circuit breakers provide more protection than the old screw in fuses.
Circuit breakers protect every device in the house with sensitive circuitry that responds quickly if there is a fault, opening the circuit and eliminating the risk of danger and fire.
Older equipment and wiring within your home did not have to support the modern appliances of today’s time. With that said we have seen way too many times, overloading or doubling up of circuits in outdated fuse panels. Unfortunately, this leads to fires or burnt up appliances and circuits.
By upgrading the source of power distribution to your home by installing new circuit breakers you can eliminate this potentially dangerous situation.
Here are some reasons to upgrade your old fuse panel:
- Reduce the chance of an electrical fire.
- Eliminate doubled-up circuits.
- Eliminate the need to replace fuses, or the chance to install the wrong size of fuse, which is a common fire hazard.
- Capacity to add additional circuits in the future.
- Increase the resale value of your home.
- Be able to get homeowner's insurance.
