Is the Circuit Breaker Panel in Your Phoenix Home or Business Safe?
The failure in this Federal Pacific panel almost cost this family a lot more than just an expensive repair.
Unfortunately, this is not the first time we have seen a Federal Pacific or Zinsco panel unsuccessfully fail-safe.
This breaker was supposed to prevent more than 20 amps of current into that circuit by tripping the breaker. Instead, it allowed much more current through which turned into heat causing the electrical meltdown you see in the picture.
What it also did was turn the wire running through the home into a heating element which, had it continued much longer, would have inevitably caused the noisy red trucks to show up and a catastrophe for the family and the property.
To prevent this from happening, please call your local Phoenix Electrician Turn It On Electric to inspect your panel, your electrical system, and keep you and your family safe.
Why is it important to have your Circuit Breakers inspected?
Your circuit breaker panel is designed to do a number of things. Its main function is to channel electricity from the electrical main supply line to the individual circuits in your home.
You know, the circuits that power your appliances, lights, and electronics. It also is supposed to protect them by blocking electrical current if too much is requested or provided.
So, it is important that your circuit breaker panel is not only installed properly but also maintained and inspected to ensure it does not have any issues that could lead to damage in your electrical system or worse yet cause a fire in your home or business.
