However, as the main power source which redistributes electricity throughout your home or business, the electrical panel is one of the most important components for your property’s overall functionality. It also plays a huge part in keeping your space safe, as the panel’s circuit breakers are responsible for shutting your system down in cases of excessive current.

Federal Pacific & Zinsco
From the 1950s through the 1970s, millions of homes across America were powered by electrical panels from Federal Pacific Electric Company and Zinsco. Despite the fact that these panels were extremely common, by the ‘70s and ‘80s, it became clear that something was wrong. Many homeowners experienced fires, electrical shocks, and other deadly hazards has a result of faulty Federal Pacific and Zinsco brand panels.
While no longer being manufactured today, many homes across the U.S. still have Federal Pacific and Zinsco panels, without the owners even knowing. If you believe your property may be powered by either of these types of panels, you will want to replace them as soon as possible. Not only can they be deadly, but these panels will not pass building inspections, and many insurance companies will not even cover properties where Federal Pacific and Zinsco equipment is still in use.
