Electrical Panel Installation and Repair
The electrical panel is the main source of power pumping electricity to your entire home or business and we are using more energy than ever before. In order to keep your property running smoothly and safely, the electrical panel with proper rating can put an end to tripped breakers and prevent fires.
Sometimes the electrical panel becomes an afterthought to homeowners or businesses until they start to show signs of failure. Get ahead of failures by having your electrical panels inspected. This inspection becomes a high priority when your panel is more than 20 years old. Today's homes require up to 200 amps of power or more. Is your home able to handle all of your speaker systems, HD televisions, appliances and HVAC systems?
Zinsco and Federal Pacific Electric Panels
If you have a Federal Pacific Electric panel, it is good measure to have it replaced. This panel was prominent in homes built in the 1950s-1980s and they do not meet today's safety/building codes due to their high risk for fire danger. These panels are considered high risk due to their history of failing to trip when wires are overloaded and leading to fires.
