The Most Dangerous Fuse Panel / Breaker Box / Electrical Panel in the Dallas Metroplex!

The federal government has issued a message of caution about Federal Pacific Stab-Lok electric panels.

The federal government has issued a message of caution about Federal Pacific Stab-Lok electric panels to homeowners, electricians, home inspectors and real estate agents. At issue, when a circuit breaker gets overloaded and overheats, the breaker is supposed to trip, shutting off to prevent a fire, but some of the breakers don’t work properly. The panels were installed in thousands of homes in North Texas in the 1960s, 1970s and early 1980s. Federal Pacific is no longer in business. This story was published February 28, 2011 – 11:08 p.m.

If you live in the Dallas, Texas area and you have a Federal Pacific breaker box,
Zinsco or Zinsco-Sylvania electrical panel, it probably needs to be replaced as soon as possible.

I called Barney after Christmas Lighting Contractor blew out a circuit. Barney responded in 15 minutes and had my electrical system working good as new. Great customer service, personality and advise. I will definitely use Barney's Electric for all my electrical needs in the future.

I recommend Barney's Electric! Very prompt and friendly service. Even though my problem didn't turn out to be that serious, he was respectful and nice and didn't charge for the consultation. Diagnosed the issue and fixed it very quickly. I will be calling him for any future electrical problems I may have!

Barney and his team are top notch. Today was my first time using this company and I'm very pleased. Barney showed up on time and completed the entire job in about 3 hrs. The job included 3 ceiling fan installs as well as running new service for 4 LED can lights. They were professional and completely cleaned up all areas when complete. I will be using Barney's Electric again.
