Fuse Box Replacement

Fuse boxes are an outdated electrical system. Not all fuse boxes need to be replaced nor are all fuse boxes unsafe but it is recommended to replace a fuse box with a breaker box due to the age of most fuse boxes. Replacing your fusebox also eliminates the hassle of having to figure out which fuse is faulty when something goes wrong. Switching to a breaker panel will give you a much more reliable product and can they can also be reused after they trip. Another benefit of breaker panels would be to incorporate safety breakers such as an arc fault breaker or GFCI breaker in your breaker panel which can protect your home and your family.

Main Panel Repair & Rejuvenation

Believe it or not, but not all electricians know exactly what they are doing. For example, when newly finished basements or circuits are added after the home was built can often lead to the incorrect breakers being installed. Your panel manufacturer requires proper breaker installation as well as Underwriters Laboratories, and of course NFPA (National Fire Protection Agency). This is due to the studies on improper breakers causing damage to your electrical equipment and homes. Full panel replacements aren’t always necessary, but rejuvenations can get your home safe and up to code. Rejuvenation includes replacing manufacturer required breakers, the connections inside your equipment, as well as a full panel labeling so you know what each breaker does.

Sub Panels

Sub panels can be necessary for a number of reasons. For example, if you don’t have enough space in your main panel when wiring a basement or addition, when wiring pools or hot tubs or if your main panel is already overloaded then you might need a sub panel. Also, if you were to manipulate your main panel to fit any of these additions it would most likely not be up to code and could be potentially dangerous for your home. Sub panels vary in size as well as amperage so it’s important to know what’s best for your home. It’s best to consider all of the different variables when installing a sub panel so give the experts here at Direct Electric Company a call at 951-200-5262 for a free quote.
