Electrical Panel Upgrades
Is my panel safe?Today’s new electrical panels are well-designed, however homes built as recently as the 1980s may have panels the pose serious safety and fire hazards. Some of these more dangerous electrical panels are Zinsco and Federal Pacific Electric (FPE), and fuse boxes. In addition, according to the US Census Bureau more than half of the homes today were constructed before the 1970s. That means more than half were built decades before many modern electric conveniences existed. For example, you have more appliances in your kitchen today that use more electricity than an entire home used 40 years ago. If you suspect you have one of the above panel installed, or if your home is showing one or more of the signs below, call The Happy Outlet immediately.
- Flickering Lights
- Breakers that constantly trip or fuses that frequently blow
- Crackling sounds coming from panel box
- Corrosion or rust on the panel box and/or breakers
- Appliances running at less than full power
- Over-heated circuit breakers
- Melted wires
