Fuse to Circuit Breaker Changeovers in Albany, Colonie, Delmar & Latham

Proudly Serving Homes in NY's Capital District

Do you still have fuses in your home? If so, you might want to consider an upgrade to circuit breakers. Our customers tell us that some insurance companies are refusing to write homeowner policies if the electrical service still has fuses as the main source of circuit protection.

Circuit breakers are a wonderful resource for electrical safety, and are more convenient than using fuses. There is no need to search for replacement fuses in a dark basement, and there is not the same risk of incorrectly sizing a circuit breaker for an existing circuit. Most people just replace the existing fuse with a new one of the same amperage rating, but what happens if the person who installed the fuse before you installed the wrong size fuse? This could potentially lead to a dangerous situation and it could possibly be a safety concern.

We use only Square D QO brand circuit breakers and circuit breaker panelboxes on new installations and we find them to be the best in the business for turning off power to a circuit that is not working properly and could potentially be a hazard. Not only do these circuit breakers trip faster than any other, we find them to be the most convenient to the homeowner as well. They have a small window that shows an orange flag when tripped, easily allowing you to find the problematic circuit breaker among those that are still working. This system is truly homeowner-friendly.
