If your home was built before 1980, a hidden danger could be waiting in your electric panel. Many Florida homes were built with electrical systems that we now know are prone to failure and can cause a fire. Your family, home and irreplaceable mementos could be at risk from an electrical fire and you may not even know you have one of these hazardous panels. Still worse, should you have a fire, insurance does not cover loss from a fire caused by unsafe electric panels.

Which Panels are Dangerous?

In Florida, there are a few specific types of electrical panels you should be concerned about:

Federal Pacific

Federal Pacific electrical panel

One of the most common circuit breaker panels in homes built between the 1950s and 1980s, Federal Pacific Electric Company panels are known to go bad over time. They stop providing effective protection against power surges and can cause fires.

Zinsco or GTE-Sylvania

Zinsco electrical panel

While there aren’t many Florida homes that have Zinsco panels, you should make sure your home doesn’t have one. Zinsco electrical panels frequently fail to operate properly, leaving you at risk of painful electric shocks and dangerous fires.

Outdated Panels & Fuse Boxes

outdated electrical panel

Some homes have first-generation breaker panels or, especially homes built prior to the 1950s, old-timey fuse boxes that are not capable of safely handling the electrical needs of modern families. If your home has a fuse box or decades-old electrical panel, it may be unsafe.
