Does your Home still have an old-style fuse panel? Are circuits overloaded? Have circuits been “doubled-up?” Has new wiring been added over the years, and does it meet the code? Has your Insurance Company refused to renew your home insurance policy? Your home may need an electrical panel upgrade.
Modern Electrical Panels are more convenient and are built to far higher safety standards than outdated fuse panels. Extra protection is incorporated into the latest equipment in the form of circuit breakers.
Better Protection for your Home
There is also excellent protection available in the form of Ground-Fault Circuit Breakers and Arc-Fault Circuit Breakers.
When you replace your older outdated fuse panel with a modern electrical panel with circuit breakers, this will allow installation of GFCI (Ground-fault), AFCI (Arc-fault) Protection and Surge Protection right at the electrical panel. This will provide you with the best circuit protection for safety, comfort, security, and peace of mind.
Older equipment and wiring systems did not have to support the modern appliances of our day. Overloading and doubling up of circuits is commonly seen on older, outdated fuse panels, the result of improper installations that were never inspected. This can cause fires.
