The first thing that needs to be understood or asked is, “how do fuses work”?
- A fuse is a deliberate point of weakness in an electric circuit. It is a safeguard that protects the attached wiring from carrying too much electrical current and overheating. When the maximum limit of current is surpassed the internal metal inside the fuse melts. This causes the circuit to open, or break, which stops the flow of electricity and protects the attached wiring from overheating.
When a fuse blows it’s always going to be a case of too much power trying to flow across the fuse and the attached wiring that the fuse is protecting. This overload of electrical power can be caused by different reasons however.
What about upgrading to a circuit breaker box?
A fuse does the exact same thing that a circuit breaker does; it protects the attached wiring from overloading. Both devices protect the connected wiring from carrying too much power and overheating but a fuse works on a chemical reaction where a breaker works on a mechanical response. A fuse is a onetime use device meaning that once it blows it will need to be replaced. A circuit breaker can be reset if tripped. Both are safe but for convenience circuit breakers are the better choice unless a specific piece of equipment requires a specific fuse type. See our page about fuse box replacement for more details.
