We are looking at buying a house that was built in 1950. The RE listing says it is 100 amp breaker electric, but it still has the old fashioned fuses. We have been told that those old fuses are not safe in the basement - is that true? How much would it cost us to upgrade the electric?

agree with brric. Fuses can often be safer than breakers. Though some insurance companies around here don;t like them because they're fairly easy to tamper with.
