DO YOU HAVE ONE OF THESE OBSOLETE OR DANGEROUS BREAKER PANEL?
- Do you have a Federal Pacific panel(FPE)? If you own a home between 25 and 65 years old, check your breaker box. A Federal Pacific panel will usually have its name or logo on the front cover. Inside, you will find the name Stab-Lok printed near the center or side of the panel. The intact breakers will have the signature red strip that runs across the front.If you find you a Federal Pacific panel or Stab-Lok breakers, call Infinity Electrical Solutions for further information about replacing your circuit breaker panel.
- Do you have a Zinsco Panel? Most Zinsco panels are obsolete today. However, at one time, they were extremely popular and installed in many regions throughout North America. As time has passed, electricians and home inspectors have discovered that certain Zinsco panels often can fail to operate properly and may leave homes and homeowners at risk to both fire and electrical shock. These panels can work fine for years, but as homes have increased energy demands, these panels may overheat and portions of it melt.
- Is Your Challenger Brand Electric Panel Safe?Certain types of Challenger electrical panels and breakers catch fire! Really! Check your panel today, as Challenger was very popular in the ’80s and ’90s. Circuit breakers are designed to keep you and your family safe. However, there are a few brands of breaker still in use today that might not only fail to protect you — they could actually cause a fire. Add to this list the brand Challenger. The breakers in question are mostly found in homes built in the 1980s through much of the 1990s, and there are untold numbers of these breakers still in homes today.
- Fuse box
- Fuse boxes are old electrical panels that use fuses instead of circuit breakers to protect your wires from becoming overloaded. When a circuit draws too much electricity, the fuse burns out and must be replaced.Why they’re unsafe: Fuses aren’t inherently unsafe. They work just like circuit breakers (except they can’t be reset and must be replaced.) However, most fuse boxes in homes today are unsafe because they’ve been modified to try to serve today’s energy demands.
