Electrical Panel Replacement in Cypress

An electrical panel, also known as a breaker panel or breaker box, is a steel box that contains multiple circuit breakers connected to the many circuits that distribute electricity throughout your home. Circuit breakers protect the electrical wiring by powering off, or “tripping”, when an electrical short or overcurrent occurs. 

Fuse boxes are also containers that serve the same function. Fuses prevent damage to the electrical wiring in a similar fashion: the fuse is made up of a piece of metal that melts when overheated – interrupting the flow of power.


Fuses Vs. Circuit Breakers

While fuses are advantageous over circuit breakers in that they tend to react quicker to overloading and are more inexpensive, their disadvantage is that they are not reusable. Fuses must always be replaced once they are blown. This disadvantage can be amplified if the circuit is prone to frequent surges that will regularly cause the fuses to blow. Though a fuse box repair can be a simple task, a do-it-yourselfer can mistakenly select a fuse with the wrong voltage or current rating, which can result in a damaged circuit.

Circuit breakers are reusable and easier to understand for the layman. It is usually clear which switch has tripped and resetting is quick. However, this can quickly become a disadvantage if the circuit breakers are switched back without understanding why they tripped in the first place. It is crucial that you have a trained electrician in Cypress to inspect circuits that frequently trip the breakers. All in all, the circuit breaker is safer and easier to operate for the average homeowner.

Fuse Box Upgrade

As mentioned earlier, fuses serve the same function as circuit breakers but can be costly in the long run as you continuously replace the fuses each time they are blown. If you purchased an older home with a fuse box and would like a fuse box upgrade to a breaker panel, then you will want to call a licensed Houston electrician at Mr. Electric of Katy.

Robert was an excellent tech! He knew exactly what he was talking about, and was very professional with the service! The company seemed like a small company, which was great! They had someone come out for a quote the same day, and installed everything the very next day! Very fast and efficient! Would definitely recommend!

William was excellent, not only did he quickly fix my initial problem but also found two others that could have caused me major issues with my grounding system. After repairing those, he made me aware that my smoke detectors were 3 years expired and needed to be replaced. I decided to replace those myself and he told me exactly what to buy which really helped. He gave me written estimates on everything he was going to work on and even saved me $100 on the grounding by finding a more efficient solution. I really appreciate him doing that for me! I highly recommend this company.

Fernando did my work today and he was great. He was on time and professional. He explained my options and made suggestions for potential future upgrades. I never felt like he was pushy, agressive, or difficult to talk to, and he left the work areas clean. The price given seemed reasonable for the work, and the job was done quickly. Overall, I'm quite satisfied with the service I received.
