Dangerous and discontinued Panels
I would never try and make a sale by scaring a home owner but there are at least two panels manufactured by Zinsco and Federal Pacific that have lost there UL approval and proven to be dangerous. If you have one of these panels click on the manufacturer link and read the unbiased reports and decide for yourself.
A home with an electrical service upgrade is a safe home. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) says electrical problems are the largest cause of property damage in homes, while the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that problems with home electrical wiring cause approximately 40,000 fires annually and are the leading cause of accidental electrocutions.
