When it comes to your home’s electrical equipment, your panel is both the brain and the heart that makes it all work. Your panel is what is responsible for taking the incoming electricity from the grid or your solar energy system and then distributing it to the various circuits in your home where it’s needed. Your panel is also responsible for keeping you safe—the many various circuit breakers in it are what shut off if they sense that your system is drawing too much current and potentially putting your home at risk.

The Dangers of Federal Pacific & Zinsco Panels
Throughout the 1970s and 80s, millions of homes were built using electrical panels from companies named Federal Pacific and Zinsco. Unfortunately, as these panels began to age, it started becoming apparent that their construction quality was not up to par, and they have been blamed for causing dozens of house fires. While these panels have not been used in construction or installed for decades, there are still plenty of these panels out there, especially here in the Portland area.
Call Our Electricians Now If You Have Either of These Brands of Electrical Panels:
If your home was constructed with a panel from Zinsco or Federal Pacific, it’s strongly advised that you replace this panel as soon as possible. These panels do not pass building inspections, and many home insurance companies won’t cover houses that have these panels installed. Even though your panel may have worked flawlessly for years, the risk of a potential problem is too great, and only rises as they age.
