Upgrading might not be the best option for your home’s electrical system. Sometimes, a full replacement or additional panel is required.
Homes that were built in the 1960s were constructed with fuse boxes. Modern appliances require a higher voltage than the old-fashioned fuse box can provide, and old wiring can pose safety issues. If your electrical system has not been updated, you should replace the fuse box with a modern electrical panel. Electrical panels can handle the increased electrical demand of today.
If you have an electrical panel but it is several decades old, it is probably underpowered and should be replaced.
If you are remodeling or constructing a home addition, the home’s current electrical infrastructure will probably not be adequate. Proper distribution of the power throughout your home is critical for safety and reliability. Even if you are not remodeling, your current panel can also become overloaded if more people are now living in your home.
