Fuse Panels

An electrical fuse panel upgrade is just what it implies. It is an upgrade from the existing electrical fuse panel. With all the new appliances, and technical devices we now have in our Dallas and Fort Worth homes, we find that older homes might not have sufficient power available to handle the increased demand. Therefore, a “service change” is required. This includes not only an upgrade in your electric fuse panel but an upgrade in your meter socket and wire size between the meter and fuse panel. Simple electrical service fuse panel work consists of basic fuse panel changes that Dallas, Fort Worth homeowners often feel they can do themselves. The trick to achieving maximum results, however, lies not only in the service, but also in the parts that compose the electrical fuse panel itself. Many electrical supply stores that sell to end-users simply do not carry the equipment available to licensed electricians like Barney’s Electric. If you live in an older home and realize that your electrical fuse panel needs more than simple servicing, we can furnish and install a brand new model that will last you many years to come and offer your home lighting and power system with the maximum safety and efficiency available through our industry.

A fuse panel change out is usually required to fix a problem with the existing fuse panel.

  1. Sometimes a breaker(s) might overheat to the point that the buss bar in a fuse panel gets burned.

We had Barney's Electric come out to install an outdoor ceiling fan on the patio. We really appreciated the no cost estimate. He quoted a fair price and when he came to install the fan, he worked very quickly and efficiently even though he had lost his assistant during the week and it was a little warm that morning. He was very nice. I would call him again for any additional work we might need.

Barney's Electric took out my old fluorescent lighting fixtures and installed recessed lighting with dimmer switches. He installed under cabinet lighting with switches, and installed USB ports in my kitchen outlets. The lighting transformed my kitchen. It looks so much better! They were nice, polite, and cleaned up after themselves.

My husband and I decided to completely gut and remodel our kitchen. In doing so, most of our existing kitchen electrical would need to be completely redone. After numerous, frustrating interviews with other electricians, I contacted Barney. I am very glad I did. He came out, assessed the project and gave us a clear idea of what to expect. Barney showed up promptly when he was scheduled and got right to work. When issues arose, he was very clear in communicating with me what the situation was and what options we had to address them correctly. He was very good about staying in contact with me throughout the project and even stopped by on occasions to see how other work was progressing so that he and I could coordinate next steps and completion of his work.

Our kitchen looks and operates amazing! He did a great job with all our lighting requests and made sure that we had all the appropriate electrical connections for our high-end appliances and to ensure all work was completed per code for inspection. On short notice he was very responsive and came out to make a last minute adjustment that was necessary to ensure proper installation of our range.

Barney has unbelievable character and is a great guy to work with. It is evident he takes a lot of pride in his work and we would highly recommend him to anyone.
