system. Generally speaking, there are two types of panels: those with
circuit breakers and those with fuses. Each has their own pros and cons,
but both require service from a licensed, fully trained electrician. Never
attempt to install or repair an electrical panel yourself, as this could
result in a serious threat to your home and your personal safety. Instead,

Electrical Panel Upgrades
A surprising number of homes don’t have proper electrical panels.
If your home is older or if you use a significant amount of electrical
appliances and devices every day, your panel may be struggling to keep
up with the electrical demands of your family. This isn’t just an
annoyance; it can also pose serious hazards, including an increased risk
of electrical shock and/or fires.
Some signs that you may need to upgrade your home’s electrical panel include:
- You keep having
wiring issues, such as flickering lights or sparking
- You’ve added a large electrical appliance, such as a hot tub or refrigerator,
to your home
- You are planning on renovating or adding on to your home
- Your home’s electrical panel still uses fuses/a fuse box
- You find that you always have to use power strips and/or extension cords
All of these can point to potential issues with your electrical panel,
including an overloaded panel. It’s important that you schedule
professional electrical panel upgrades in St. Paul at the first sign of
trouble, as waiting to request service could put you and your home at risk.
Should You Replace Your Fuse Box?
While there is nothing necessarily
with fuse boxes, they are outdated and, in most cases, not able to keep
up with modern electricity demands. For fuse boxes installed prior to
1970 (which is typically the case when a fuse box is present), the lack
of amperage can be dangerous.
While older fuse boxes typically have only enough capacity to handle up
to 60 amps, modern circuit breaker panels are usually able to handle from
150 to 200 amps. Upgrading your fuse box to a modern circuit breaker panel
can make your life much more convenient and protect you from the fire
risks that come with old fuses or incorrect fuses.
