The Only Call You Need
Your home’s electrical system functions just like your body with different systems working together to sustain life. Circuits and wiring carry electricity through your home just like veins and arteries carry oxygen rich blood through your body. Electricity is the lifeblood of your home carrying current to your appliances, computers, television and heating/cooling units.
Without a healthy functioning heart, blood will not travel efficiently throughout the body. The same is true of an ill-functioning electrical panel. The panel is the heart of your home’s electrical system and if not functioning properly, the entire system will not work which can expose your home and family to possible danger.
Just as your heart can develop problems due to age, diet and genetics, panels can also deteriorate and become less efficient which can expose your home to electrical issues including fire. There are millions of homeowners with panels over 40 years old that may no longer protect against over-currents and short circuits so it’s wise to get to know your panel. Out of the many panels out there, two major brands have outdated manufacturing and/or design flaws that can put your home at risk. The two brands are Federal Pacific Electric and Zinsco. Regardless if your panel is made by Federal Pacific Electric and Zinsco or another company, it needs an occasional check up.
