Should I replace my electrical panel?

If you are wondering whether you should upgrade your electrical panel, it is important to consider the age of your home and the type of electrical panel you have. If your panel is outdated or your home is over 20 years old, it is possible that your electrical panel is not equipped to safely handle the increased electrical demands of today. An upgrade could potentially reduce the risk of fire and other hazards. A professional electrician can help you assess your current panel and determine if an upgrade is necessary for your home.

Installing a new electrical panel is one of the most important steps you can take to ensure the safety and efficiency of your home’s electrical system. Not only does a new electrical panel reduce the risk of electrical fires, it also increases the amount of power available to your home, allowing you to add more electrical devices without overloading your existing system. Additionally, a new electrical panel is designed with the latest safety features, helping to protect your home and family from electrical hazards. With the safety and convenience of a new electrical panel, you can be sure that your home’s electrical system is up to date and running as safely and efficiently as possible.

Zinsco and FPE Panels

Are Zinsco and FPE panels safe? This is a question many homeowners have on their minds, and the short answer is no. These panels have been known to cause serious issues with home electrical systems. While the panels may have been safe when they were first installed, they have since been found to be dangerous due to their high tendency to overheat, leading to potential fire hazards. In addition, their design has been known to allow loose connections and arcing, which can cause additional safety issues. As a result, if your home has either of these types of panels, it is highly recommended that they be replaced as soon as possible in order to ensure the safety and reliability of your home’s electrical system.
