Performing electrical work for homeowners and finding solutions for their home electrical needs is easy for our electricians to stay passionate about. See, every service call is unique because no two houses are wired exactly the same – and every customer is different. Variety always keeps things interesting!
Some service calls are very straight forward while other service calls, we may run into something more unusual - like an outdated or obsolete electrical panel. There are four outdated breaker panels that come to mind: Federal Pacific (FPE), Zinsco (Sylvania), Wadsworth and Push-o-matic (Bulldog).
When I say these electrical panels are outdated, what I mean is we almost always recommend they be replaced.All of the above electrical panels have known safety issues and the circuit breakers are obsolete, expensive and difficult to find.
If you think your electrical panel may be one of the brands listed above, give us a call and we will come out and look things over. At Edison Electric, Inc. – we replace hundreds of electrical panels each year, giving our customers peace of mind by making the home safer. For more information call us at, 612-385.7864.
