Is my Zinsco or Federal Pacific electrical panel safe?

Your panel is the heart of your home’s electrical system! If your panel isn’t working, then the electrical items in your home may not work properly. Not only that, but there are some older brands of electric panels that can be major safety risks as well! The two panel brands that are the highest safety risk are Federal Pacific and Zinsco. If the electrical panel in your home is one of these two brands, you should consider completely replacing it.

Why is it important to replace my Zinsco or Federal Pacific Panel?

Here’s the short version. These panels were constructed using aluminum, which is subject to overheating when the energy demands of the home increase. When critical parts of the panel corrode, it can cause the breakers to melt and not function properly. If the breaker doesn’t trip as it’s supposed to, it can cause major safety concerns! More electricity is flowing than the circuit can handle, and that can cause all sorts of issues that are ultimately unsafe for you and your family.
