into your home through circuits. Each circuit is protected by a breaker. Breakers trip when a
circuit draws to much power.
It is important that the breaker be the right size for the circuit it protects. Hot, buzzing, or
constantly tripping breakers are signs of trouble in your panel. It is important to maintain and check your
electrical panel regularly to prevent major damage. TE Certified Electricians perform panel checks on every
service call and provide maintenance. We look for signs of wear and tighten all your connections.
Is your panel overloaded? The modern home is full of high-tech and high-power electronics and
appliances that the original home builder may not have anticipated. Subsequently, many older homes with
original panels are overloaded and present a major fire risk. TE Certified Electricians use a special meter
to test every suspect panel and heat guns to check panel temperatures. Overloaded panels generate heat
before they short or burn which helps us catch problems before they become dangerous and costly.
Are Federal Pacific or Zinsco panels safe? No, Federal Pacific panels were installed by the thousands
in the 1970's and 80's. Unfortunately, the Federal Pacific design (copied by Zinsco) was faulty and
overloaded circuit breakers fail or melt instead of "tripping". This led to many house fires, a class action
lawsuit, and then bankruptcy for the company. Many of these dangerous and obsolete panels are still in
use throughout Metro Atlanta.
