Did you know that some Bay Area homes built prior to 1980 contain electrical panels that have since been identified as a fire hazard?
It’s alarming, yet unfortunately true…
If your home was built before 1980, we recommend that you check the brand name attached to your electrical panel. The two panel manufacturer names that pose a threat to your home and have since been discontinued are:
- Federal Pacific
