Federal Pacific Electrical Panel Replacement
Call Our Portland Electricians to Schedule Yours
Throughout the 1970s and 80s, homes all over the Pacific Northwest were constructed with electrical panels from a company named Federal Pacific. Over time, the flaws in the construction of these panels began to expose themselves, and to date they’ve been blamed for numerous house fires due to electrical shorts and failures. While these panels have not been used in construction for decades, many older homes in the Portland, Clackamas, Multnomah & Washington County areas still have them installed, and they haven’t been changed out.

What Can Happen with a Faulty Electrical Panel?
Your electrical panel is the heart of your electrical system, and the brain which makes it work. Your panel is both where your main electrical connection to your home is found, and where the power from that main connection is distributed across the various circuits in your home. It’s also where your circuit breakers are located, which protect your home from the risks of over-currents drawing too much power and potentially risking starting an electrical fire.
A faulty electrical panel can potentially contain or cause shorts, which lead to fires or serious damage to your home or electrical system. They could also work inconsistently, which means you may have to deal with breakers shutting off randomly and when they otherwise wouldn’t. Finally, they could also increase the risk of electrocution or injuries caused by electrical equipment. All of this means that it’s a good idea to replace your Federal Pacific electrical panel as soon as possible.
