Electric Panel Upgrades

Panels that are over 30 years old may no longer protect the homes they are installed in from short circuits and over-currents posing a fire hazard for you and your family. Changing these panels may save the life and/or belongings of you and your loved ones. Your safety is our highest priority.

Today there are millions of homes with potentially hazardous electrical panels. There are 3 brands of panels that may have major manufacturing and/or design flaws that could put homeowners at risk. Federal Pacific, Zinsco and Pushmatic.

Federal Pacific Electric (FPE) Panels

- FPE was one of the most popular manufacturers of electrical panels in the US in the 1950s to 1980s. They were installed in millions of homes.

- They have breakers that fail to trip when they should and do not properly cut power when in the "off" position. This can be extremely unsafe.

- Look for the brand name or the name Stab-Loc on the inside of your panel. If present, call us.

Zinsco or GTE-Sylvania Panels

- These are popular electrical panels installed in homes in the 1970's.

- The circuit breakers are known to melt to the "bus bar", the component carrying the electricity from the meter, so the breakers can't trip.

- If your panel has either of these brand names, you should call us because it likely needs replaced.
