Project: Install Electrical Switches, Outlets, and Fixtures

“A great installation of a ceiling fan. The wiring was strung, and the controller for light and fan were installed very professionally, quickly, and cleanly.I feel like a putz for not remembering the names of the techs. One was apparently an apprentice/trainee. They showed up promptly, evaluated what needed to be done, then did it.”

We service Federal Pacific Electric (FPE) breakers

Federal Pacific Stab-Lok circuit breaker panels are considered by many, ” defective and unsafe” and an absolute must to be removed if you have one in your home.  These panels were installed in the 50′s, 60′s, 70′s, and 80′s in many areas throughout the United States and North America. An investigation revealed that these panels cause approximately 2800 house fires a year.  There was no recall for this panel primarily since they are out of business.  The only state that had a class action lawsuit is New Jersey and there is no funding or grants to help people with the removal of these so you’re on your own.   We have removed many of these panels due to defective breakers, mains, or just the sale of home.  The word is getting out on these panels and they are HUGE red flag amongst realtors, inspectors, and homeowners!  Due your due diligence and consider this information a warning for you and your families safety.
