Insufficient Electrical Panels
If your home’s electrical panel is over 25 years old, it may be equipped with a faulty electrical panel that is known to cause safety risks. Here are some of the electrical panels you should look out for to have them upgraded before they become a problem:
- Federal Pacific Electric (FPE) Electrical Panel: These are deemed by the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission as having a safety defect that causes fires and shocks.
- Zinsco Electrical Panel: These panels have a safety defect that enables power to circulate even if the breakers are shut off. Furthermore, they are known to cause melting breakers and have a higher risk of fire and shock.
- Pushmatic Electrical Panel: These panels have weak switches that become difficult to reset. They also do not include a main breaker switch.
- Fuse Boxes: Fuse boxes are the most dated type of electrical panel, offering only 30-60-amps. They are no longer manufactured as they are a significant safety risk, prone to causing fires and electrocution.
If you identify any of the above electrical panels or a fuse box in your home, it’s crucial to contact Mr. Electric of Omaha to have a modern, fully functional, and safe electrical panel installed immediately.
