Ensuring Your Home Isn’t a Fire Waiting to Happen
One of the most important reasons to get electrical inspections every five years or so is to make sure the wiring and electrical panel are safe and up to date. If your home is older, you may still have an outdated electrical panel that can fail to respond to circuit overloads.
WARNING: If your home has a Federal Pacific panel or breaker box, you need to take action!
Federal Pacific Electric Company (FPE) was one of the most common manufacturers of circuit breaker panels in North America from the 1950s to the 1980s. Millions of their panels were installed in homes across America.
The Consumer Product Safety Commissioner (CPSC) and independent researchers are recommending the replacement of Federal Pacific Electric circuit breaker panels and Stab-Lok circuit breakers because they’re a latent hazard and can fail to trip in response to overcurrent, leading to electric fires.
These breakers may also fail to shut off internally, even when the toggle is switched to “OFF”. Some double pole (240 volts) FPE circuit breakers and single pole (120 volts) FPE Stab-Lok circuit breakers simply don’t work safely. The failure rate exceeds 25%. Please take this issue with the utmost importance. The safety of you and your family is not worth the risk!
If you’re not sure whether you have a Federal Pacific panel or breaker box, give us a call. We’ll perform a thorough electrical inspection.
