Stillwater Fuse Panel Box Replacement
If you have a home built before 1960, you probably rely on a fuse box for electrical system management. While fuse boxes were innovative for the time, today, they're outdated and possibly dangerous. According to the National Fire Protection Association, there are an estimated 24,000 residential electrical fires every year, with two-thirds attributed to outdated wiring and circuit protection systems.
If you're still using a fuse box, here are several reasons to consider an electrical panel upgrade.
Upgrading to a breaker panel can save you money in the long run. Breaker panels offer protection from surges and overloads, keeping your home and expensive appliances and gadgets safe from potential damage.
Breaker panels also make it easier to add additional circuits for electrical appliances or other upgrades to your home.
Breaker panels are even more efficient and convenient than traditional fuse boxes, providing additional protection and eliminating the need to replace fuses when circuits trip.
Installing a breaker panel allows you to identify which circuit is causing issues for faster repairs.
Breaker panels are designed to meet current safety standards, so you can be sure that your home will remain up-to-date and compliant with safety authorities. Modern breaker panels include GFCI and AFCI features for increased protection.
Finally, upgrading an old fuse box to a modern electrical panel will add value to your home and can lower your insurance premiums.

Expert Home Wiring Repair
If you're like most homeowners, you never think about your wiring, trusting it to provide power whenever you need it without issue. However, wiring is like any other home component and needs repairs and upgrades to keep you and your family safe. You may need a wiring upgrade or repair and not know it, so here are a few signs to watch for.
Flickering lights or frequent bulb burnouts
If you notice that your lights flicker or dim regularly or if you're constantly replacing light bulbs, this may be a sign of a faulty or outdated electrical system.
Frequent breaker trips
A circuit breaker that trips often is a sign that there may be too much electrical load on the circuit or that there is a short circuit somewhere in the wiring.
Burning or unusual odors
A burning smell, primarily when you use certain electrical appliances, can indicate that your wiring is overheating and poses a potential fire hazard.
Electrical shocks or buzzing sounds
These are both signs of an electrical issue that can be caused by wiring problems or other issues with your electrical system.
Outlets that are warm to the touch
If you notice that an outlet is warm or hot to the touch, it may indicate a problem with the wiring or that the outlet is overloaded and should be upgraded or repaired for your safety.
Electricity is dangerous, and most household electrical fires are easily preventable by being diligent about repairs and maintenance.
