If you live in an older home, you may find an obsolete fuse box, along with outdated insulation and wires. Replacing a fuse box with circuit breakers will give your electrical system greater reliability, power, and safety. The following will discuss some important points to consider. Consult with an experienced licensed electrician before proceeding.
The service or circuit panel is an important component of every home’s electrical system, because it allows the system to function properly. According to some, a 100-amp service panel should be the minimum. However, this may not be enough for modern homes that are equipped with a heavy-duty HVAC unit, large appliances, entertainment systems, computers, an electrical car charger, and an ever-growing number of devices.
Keeping the future in mind, a 200-Amp service panel should be seriously considered. The following discusses the benefits of installing this upgrade for your home. Remember to talk to an experienced licensed electrician to get the best results for your project.
