Unsafe Electrical Panels Need To Be Replaced: Zinsco

Zinsco was a popular brand of electrical panel in the 1970's. The company is now defunct, but some homes built in the 70's still have these unsafe panels. The problem with Zinsco panels is a design flaw that causes the panel to heat up with a power surge. The switched melt into the panel rather than tripping and cutting off power. This unchecked heat can cause a fire. Our Inspector found a working panel and demonstrates the problem using his thermal imaging camera.

If your home has a Zinsco panel, you need to call an electrician to have it replaced. Need help finding a great DFW electrician? Give us a call, or send us a message, and we'd be glad to recommend someone.
