An out-of-date electrical panel is not just inconvenient; it is also dangerous. Waiting too long to replace your main panel may provide a fire risk since it may overheat while performing its function. One of the signs of an aging electric panel is tripping the circuit breakers in your main panel or electric sub-panels, even when you aren't utilizing much power. Your panel's capacity to distribute energy may eventually fail, leaving you and your family or employees in the dark.
For your personal safety and comfort, it's critical to identify problems early and replace your panel before the potential of poor electrical operation, power failure, and other problems develops. Flickering lights, blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers, or strange crackling noises are all indications that it's time to update your electric panel. Furthermore, if your house or company uses Federal Pacific (FPE) or Zinsco circuit breaker panels, these obsolete panels may not provide enough safety and protection. They were not tested to satisfy UL requirements when they were manufactured and have been linked to an increased risk of electrical shock or fire. Please contact us if your property has one of these types of defective panels.
