Federal Pacific circuit breaker panels were widely used from the 1960s to the 1980s, especially the “Stab-Lok” line. At Mike Williams Electric, a substantial part of our business over the past 20 years has been replacing Federal Pacific panels in Rochester, Monroe County, and surrounding areas. Our licensed electricians can upgrade your panel with a safer model.
Reasons to Upgrade Your Panel
The electrical panel plays an important role in ensuring the safety of your electrical system. An outdated or malfunctioning panel can pose serious safety risks and should be replaced to avoid serious problems. Federal Pacific panels are known to be a fire and electrical safety hazard. These panels are dangerous for several reasons.
Some of the problems we have seen with these panels include:
- Breakers failing to trip with a short circuit
- Breakers that are on with live circuits, even when the handle is in the off position
- Damage caused by breaker failure
These are serious problems that can result in a house fire, severe electrical shock, devastating property damage, and even death. The severity of these problems and the potential for catastrophic injury or property damage cannot be overstated. Replacing Federal Pacific panels in Rochester is one of the biggest safety improvements you can make for your electrical system.
