Zinsco Panel Replacement in Denver
Experience Electrical Malfunctions in Your Home? Call Us Today.
Electrical panels manufactured by Zinsco Electrical where once a common fixture in homes across the U.S. These panels, however, have been linked to shocks, fires, and related damage to your home and your health. While you may have never experienced an issue, aging panels often cannot keep up with the demands of modern appliances and increased electrical needs. This can cause the panels to overheat and crucial components to malfunction and even melt. Melted breakers won’t trip when there is a short, surge, or overcurrent. In the worst cases, panels cannot be manually shut off, causing fires that burn through your system’s wires, creating severe damage that is expensive to fix.
Common Causes of Zinsco Panel Malfunctions
Many issues with Zinsco panels cannot be noticed by the naked or untrained eye and it is important for your safety that you never try to diagnose or take apart your electrical panel on your own. Our fully trained technicians know what to look for and take all precautions to eliminate the risks of electrical shock and fire.
We will look for the following design flaws:
- Bus bars that are melted to the breaker
- Corroded bus bars
- Aluminum components
- Panels that are switch off but are still conducting electricity
The age of your panel also provides crucial details into their safety. Because Zinsco panels haven’t been manufactured since the 70s, they are often not able to stand up to a modern household’s electrical demands. Safety standards have also increased for the benefit of the general public. Older panels often do not meet higher current UL standards, even if they passed safety inspections at the time of their manufacture, 50 years ago.
