Your home’s electrical panel (also known as the breaker box) is one of the most important safety features of your home. It is a metal electrical service box that accepts the main power to the home and safely distributes electrical current to the various circuits within the home.

The cost to replace and electrical panel is inexpensive in comparison to the damage that can occur from a faulty breaker box. If you notice signs of problems such as nuisance tripping, strong odor, dimming or flickering lights, or rust and corrosion, there may be a problem. Give us a call for a thorough inspection or a panel change estimate.

ZINSCO service panels, while no longer manufactured, were very commonly used during the time homes were constructed in the 60’s or 70’s. We see many of these in home in the Reno/Sparks and surrounding areas. In fact, there may be over 20 million ZINSCO circuit breakers currently in use across the U.S. The ZINSCO circuit breakers like those used in your panel have been blamed in numerous incidents for failing to “trip” or turn off the flow of electricity in response to an overload or short in an electrical circuit.

The circuit breakers do not directly cause an electrical fire, and this panel does not “initiate” an unsafe condition. Rather, when an unsafe condition such a short circuit or current overload on a circuit occurs, the equipment may not provide the protection expected. The result can be an overheated wire and an electrical fire and/or personal injury. If you notice anything unusual occurring, call The Electric Company to have your electrical panel inspected by a licensed electrician.

In facet, there may be over 20 million FPE circuit breakers currently in use across the U.S. The FPE circuit breakers like those used in your panel have been blamed in numerous incidents for failing to “trip” or turn off the flow of electricity in response to an overload or short in an electrical circuit.
