Fuse boxes are less common these days than circuit breaker panels. Most fuses were installed with a higher amperage than the wires can safely handle. That can cause the wires to overheat, damaging their protective insulation and increasing the risk of fire. All fuses should be upgraded to circuit breakers.
If you're buying a house (especially one that's more than 50 years old), or if you've never had your fuse box inspected, have Adelphia Electric give your home a thorough check. One of our licensed electricians can determine if any unsafe conditions.
Knob and Tube:
The oldest residential wiring is called knob and tube wiring. It was commonly used from the 1880's to the 1940's. This early method of wiring was eventually displaced from interior wiring systems because of a few safety issues.
One big reason is because of brittle insulation. It cannot handle high temperature environments. The insulation around the knob and tube wire becomes brittle and will break off, leaving exposed wire throughout your home. Inspectors often find inappropriately splices which create a serious safety hazard. Protect your home and your family!
