Without a circuit breaker box, the complicated wiring required to accommodate all of the electrical products and fixtures we use every day would be incredibly dangerous. Your electrical equipment is designed to hold a finite amount of current. If the wiring were to exceed this set amount, a number of issues could occur. Thankfully, your circuit breakers (or fuse box) help to manage this current and keep everything in place. A circuit breaker box is a vital component for new electrical installation in Chelmsford, MA and the surrounding areas all the way to Southern NH and Southern ME. If you have an older fuse box in place, you may want to consider replacing it with an updated circuit breaker panel, the modern standard in service panels.

How Does a Breaker Box Protect My Home?
There are many different names for the service panel in your home: the breaker box, fuse box, electrical panel, or breaker panel. No matter what you call it, the circuit breaker box serves an important purpose for your home safety. When something causes a circuit breaker to trip, you have to make a trip to the box and flip a switch before electricity is restored to the home. An electromagnet flips the switch when the current is no longer safe. All of this is important in preventing electrical fires, broken equipment, and shocks.
Electrical Panel Replacement and Installation Services
Most commonly, people schedule an electrical panel replacement because they are tired of replacing the fuses in their older box. If you have a fuse box in your home, it may be time for a panel upgrade. Long ago, service panels were manufactured with fuses. When a fuse “blows,” you have to replace it with a new one. Fuses are relatively inexpensive, but this doesn’t make it any less of a pain. You may also choose to replace your box if fuses blow or breakers trip frequently, as this may mean that you need to upgrade your wiring and your box to make room for greater electrical capacity in the home.
