WHEN TO REPLACE YOUR CIRCUIT BREAKER PANEL
When securing your home’s electrical system, the circuit breaker panel is the best place to start. Home Owner’s insurance requires the replacement of circuit breaker panels every twenty years. After that time it can become a hazard to your home if not replaced, so let one of our technicians at Quality Electric take a look and find out if your circuit breaker panel might need replacing.
Is Your Circuit Breaker Panel Old or Out of Date?
If you have a circuit breaker that is old or outdated, it won’t be able to stop power surges or circuit shortages. Old circuit breakers can’t keep up with the demands of modern appliances. If running two appliances trips the breaker and if you detect a burning smell coming from the circuit breaker panel, these are indicators of a big problem.
Two of the most common outdated circuit breaker panels are Zinsco and Federal Pacific Electrical panels. Neither can manage the electrical demands of today’s modern appliances and could lead to a dangerous situation should they overheat or spark, which could potentially cause a fire.
Does Your Circuit Breaker Panel Need an Upgrade?
