The Importance of Having Your Outdated Panels Replaced
While it is never good to have a panel that is not quite up to par with your service requirements, certain panels have been outlawed due to their potential for safety hazards. For example, Federal Pacific panels, which can often be found in older homes throughout Texas, are known for causing thousands of fires every year. This is because over 25% of these panels refuse to trip when there is a sudden surge.
Other panels, like the GTE-Sylvania, manufactured by Zinsco, are especially prone to overheating. This causes the breaker to melt into the bus bar, in addition to melting its contacts. Because the breaker cannot trip, countless accounts of electrocution and electrical fires have been attributed directly to these malfunctioning panels. While any outdated panel is risky, these brands have been specifically proven to pose a significant safety threat. If your home is still using one of these panels, do not delay in reaching out to dedicated electrical specialists. Our team at Cravens Electric is ready to provide you with a superior replacement to protect your family.
