We have the old glass fuse style elecrical system. We just realized that we have a 30 apm fuse in what is only suppose to be a 15 amp fuse. We would like to update the service to 200 and update the fuse box to a breaker box. Will this up the resale value of our house? And how much should we expect to spend? We have a family member who can do it all for us except the service to the house.

YOu should imedeatelychange theat 30 amp fuse to a 15.

It will add the resale of house only because the buyer will most likely request it or a price reduction if you don't.

The cost of materials would probably be around $500 or less. A complete replacement including labor will vary according to your region. I will guess between $800 and $2000.
