    What is a panel?

    The panel has several different aliases: breaker box, electric box, electric board, breaker board, service box... All of which describe the same thing. We refer to it as the "panel".

    Your panel, depending on when your home was built, can be in a variety of different places. In newer homes it's probably in your garage or outside, in older homes it may be in a closet or room. No matter where it is, we recommend that you keep the area easily accessible, with no less than 3ft of clearance around it. You should know where your panel is, and know how to operate it in case of an emergency.

    The panel controls the electricity coming from the utility company into your home. More specifically, the breakers that are attached to each circuit regulate the amount of electricity or AMPS. If a problem arises like an overloaded circuit, the breaker will trip, this preventing any electricity flowing into that circuit. Once the issue is resolved, the breaker may be turned back on the enable electricity to flow throughout the circuit again.

    The panel is the heart of any electrical system. A good panel can prevent serious damage and protect against hazards. If you are unsure about the state of your panel, Give us a call today and we will be more than happy to discuss it with you.

    Sometimes repairs need to be made right away, sometimes they can wait a while, and other times it may just be a future project to think about. Our electricians are trained to look over your home and educate you about the safety of your home's electrical system. Sometimes a home may need a lot of electrical work, other times it may be in excellent condition.

    What is a "Zinsco" Panel?

    If you have noticed that you have a Zinsco breaker box, or one of our technicians informed you that you have one, you may be interested in the information on this page and the other pages linked to it. It is our recommendation as well as the NFPA (National Fire Protection Agency) that all Zinsco panels be replaced. Although some Zinsco panels are more of a hazard than others, when it comes to safety for your home and family, too safe is never safe enough. Over time Zinsco panels & breakers have been known to fail, which can lead to very serious damages including fire(s). If you do have one of these panels, you should start thinking about getting it replaced soon.

    For this reason we can not warranty any repairs made on Zinsco panels, and if possible we always recommend replacement over repairs on this type of equipment. Zinsco panels are no longer manufactured which make the parts more costly and harder to find. Most customers have found that replacing the panel at first ends up costing less in the long run then replacing the breakers one or two at a time.
