Old house, 100A fusebox, should we replace w. breakers?
Our house is about 60 years old, have 100A service, fuses.
Its getting more difficult to purchase fuses, and we were thinking of changing to a new breaker box.
We have 3 220v. appliances, stove, dryer, and water pump. And the rest is all 110v.
We would have it done professionally, my husband used to do all our plumbing and elec work, but not any more at this age, and there are new rules and regs.
Wondering if this is actually necessary, if the old fusebox is fine, and we have no plans to add to our house. Doesnt seem to be a safety issue, fuses blow when needed. Like when our cat chewed thru my router wire and shorted it out, the cat was OK. Blew the fuse but not the fur off the cat.
