The cost of replacing a fuse box with a circuit breaker typically ranges from $1,500 to $4,500, depending on the desired amperage. Fuse boxes and circuit breakers do the same job, allowing electricity to flow to different parts of your home. They both interrupt that flow in the event of a power overload or surge that could start a fire or damage the wiring. A circuit breaker has a switch that trips to break the current. To reset it, flip the switch back to the on position. A fuse box, comparatively, utilizes fuses that contain a filament wire. The wire is designed to break when overloaded, so you must replace the fuse to fix it. Fuse boxes were installed up to the 1960s and are very uncommon to find today. They still exist and continue to work. However, electrical needs have grown since then, and most fuse boxes are too small and need to be replaced. Most commonly, it is necessary to replace an existing fuse box with a more modern breaker panel. The cost to upgrade a fuse box with a circuit breaker may be a necessary investment in keeping your home up to the area's code.
