Fuse Box Upgrade in Minneapolis

Fuse boxes are very durable, but just like about anything else can show signs of wear as the years go by. If you are noticing these signs, we recommend you call Randy’s Electric for a fuse box upgrade in Minneapolis. If you suffer frequently blown fuses, or you see rust or burn marks, then your fuse box needs to be replaced as quickly as possible.

Call us at Randy’s Electric as soon as you can to learn how we can keep your electrical system safe for you and your family. We will show you exactly what is needed to keep your fuse box in good working condition and completely inform you if an upgrade is needed. We won’t start any work until you are satisfied in regard to the scope of work that we feel needs to be performed.

How Fuse Boxes Work in Minneapolis

The electrical system in your home is known as a “closed loop” system where electricity flows through out the system to power devices as needed. However, this system can only handle so much electricity at one time. If your electronics call for more power than can be safely delivered, the fuse box will cut off power before a fire starts or any damage can be done.

When a circuit experiences an excess power surge, a fuse’s metal strip will melt, causing the circuit to be interrupted. The circuit will not work again until the fuse has been replaced. If this happens only once in a great while there’s no real need for concern. However, if it happens on a regular basis that probably means your fuse box is no longer properly regulating electricity, and therefore must be replaced.

Why Upgrading a Fuse Box is Important in Minneapolis

The most important reason for having your fuse box checked by a professional electrician, and upgraded or replaced if necessary, is to ensure the safety of your home’s electrical system.

Fuse box upgrades can be performed in as little as one day, unless the condition of the box and its surrounding wiring requires more extensive work. If it is necessary to replace not only the wiring to the fuse box and the wiring from the box to major appliances, the process will take longer.

Even if your fuse box is working properly it is important that you have a trained electrician inspect it regularly. We will look for problems such as damage from blown fuses, excessive rust or signs of power surges. We will also tell you whether your fuse box can be repaired, needs to be upgraded, or if a circuit breaker would be a better option for your home.

Whatever your fuse box repair or replacement needs, call the pros with Randy’s Electric so you can rest assured the job will be done right the first time.
