An electrical box is what is behind an electrical cover plate. The
box serves as a safety device to protect an area where wires are
joined together. They can be made of metal or plastic and come in a
variety of sizes nd shapes. There are many kinds of box covers, some
for switches, some for electrical receptacles.
A fuse box or circuit breaker box is the central location where all
the circuits are connected. Here, the circuits are protected from
overload and can protect your home from electrical fires. Newer homes
use circuit breakers rather than fuses.
