Fusion Electric is your Kansas City electrician to call for electrical safety inspections. Many Kansas City homeowners are living with outdated and potentially dangerous electrical features in their homes. We upgrade homes every day that are outdated, underpowered, and overtaxed when it comes to electrical power. Here are some of the most common safety issues we see in homes:

  • Old Electrical Panels (over 20 years old) – fire hazard
  • Old Wiring – fire hazard
  • No GFCIs in Kitchen, Bathrooms, or Outdoors – shock hazard
  • No Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters (AFCI) – fire hazard

Older Kansas City Homes Benefit From Service Panel Upgrades

One of the most common updates is a service panel upgrade for Kansas City homes. Today’s homes typically have a large-screen TV, several computers, a gaming console, and sound system all in the same room, operating off the same circuit. Not only does this create a fire hazard for homes with older wiring, the panel box is not designed to provide that much power. With today’s modern appliances and electronics, if your home is more than 30 years old, you need an electrical company to assess your home’s system and upgrade it. The service panel or fuse box is the home’s main electrical supply and upgrading the box adds more power to your home. We can also identify old wiring that can be a fire hazard and replace it. Upgrading a panel box will also make your home more energy efficient and will help you save money on electric bills.

Is Your Home’s Electrical Safety Up to Date?

One of the easiest ways to tell if your home’s electrical system is up to date is to look for GFCI outlets. GFCI, or Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters, are requirements for modern homes to meet NEC (National Electric Code) requirements. These devices are designed to cut the delivery of the electric current quickly enough to prevent injury caused by shock. Check the outlets in your bathrooms, laundry room, and kitchen. Look for a button between the upper and lower sockets of the outlet. If they are not GFCI outlets, give us a call and we can easily replace them with outlets that are up to code. Another problem we see is a lack of AFCIs (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupters). An arc (similar to an electrical short) produces intensely hot sparks that can set fire to nearby combustible materials. Arcs often happen in appliance or extension cords that have become frayed or cracked. AFCIs are able to detect certain types of dangerous arcing conditions and the AFCI breaker trips.

Older Kansas City Homes Need
Electrical Upgrades

When was your home built? If it was before 1980, your electrical system is out of date. Homes that are 20 years old or older weren’t wired to handle modern day electrical demands. Today, homes are built with a service rated for 100 amps. Older homes usually use a 60-amp electrical service. At Fusion Electric, upgrading the electrical systems in older homes is a common service call we receive. If you’re constantly blowing circuits, need more outlets for computers, game systems, kitchen appliances, home theaters, etc., give us a call. We’ll give your home a safety inspection and let you know if an upgrade is advisable. We cover the entire Kansas City area, from Leawood to Overland Park to Lee’s Summit.

Call Us for an Electrical
Safety Inspection

How safe is your home? The NEC (National Electrical Code) changes over the years. One of the most common features missing in older homes is Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters commonly called GFCIs. They are required by code in many places in your home. A GFCI is an inexpensive device that can save you from a fatal electrical shock. If a piece of electrical equipment is damaged, it can create an unintentional electrical path between itself and the ground. If a person touches it, they can be burned, shocked, or even killed. All receptacles in bathrooms, kitchens, garages, outdoors and in unfinished basements should have GFCI protection. Look for a red button in the middle of the outlet. It will pop out if there is a surge in electricity rendering the receptacle dead until you press the button to reset it.
