Electrical Panel Upgrade

Need An Electrical Panel Upgrade?

 

Your home’s electrical panel or “breaker box” or “circuit breaker,” as many people call it, is the electronic epicenter for your home’s electricity. Every piece of your home’s power is ultimately controlled by the breaker switch within your electrical panel.

If you have an older home, it may not be able to handle the demands of today’s electronics. Several electric panels are known to have problems. The Federal Pacific Electrical Panel (FPE) and Zinsco Panels were both made for decades and up until around the 1980s. These panels are known for the potential fire danger they may pose. If your home has one of these types of panels, it is strongly urged you upgrade your electrical panel box. You may not have one of those brands of electrical panels but could still be at risk.
