What are some of the faulty electrical panels that need to be replaced?

If you have one of the following electrical panels in your home, they’re considered faulty electrical panels and need to be replaced immediately.

Challenger Brand Panels

Challenger brand panels were very popular in the 1980s and 1990s. At the time, they were being marketed as affordable circuit breakers, and were installed in many homes built in the 1980s and 1990s. However, over the years, it was discovered that these circuit breakers tended to overheat even under normal (that is, the circuit hasn’t been overloaded) circumstances, causing a fire hazard. If your home was built in the 1980s or 1990s, and you have a Challenger brand panel, you need to contact us immediately.

Zinsco Brand Panels

Zinsco brand panels – along with Sylvania brand panels – have also been cited as being a culprit in many home electrical fires. Per some research, the reason Zinsco brand panels are a fire hazard is because the contact point between the between circuit breaker contact clip and the electrical panel bus is faulty. Either way, it is a fire hazard, and if you’ve discovered that you have a Zinsco brand panel, contact us immediately to get it replaced!

Federal Pacific Circuit Brand Panel

Federal Pacific Circuit brand panels were installed in houses beginning in the 1950s. While these panels were very popular in those days, they used a brand of breaker called Stab-Lok, and these breakers were determined to be a fire hazard. If you’ve discovered a Federal Pacific Circuit brand panel in your home, contact us immediately.
