! Is your Panel box SAFE? !
The circuit breaker panel is one of the most important parts of a home’s electrical system. It constantly distributes and receives electricity. The panel protects homes from power surges and other possible hazards. If you suspect that you may have a Federal Pacific Electric, Zinsco, or an outdated circuit breaker panel in your home, please contact us immediately. THEY CAN PRESENT A SERIOUS FIRE HAZARD!
What actually happens to cause unsafe conditions? Testing performed on FPE 2-pole (240V)circuit breakers indicated that in some overload conditions, particularly when one pole of thebreaker is overloaded, the circuit breaker will not trip. Some tests showed that as many as 65% of the circuit breakers would malfunction.
