The Most Dangerous Fuse Panel / Breaker Box / Electrical Panel in Rcokwall

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.

I submitted an online request at 9pm one evening for some electrical work I needed on a newly constructed patio cover. Barney called me around 7:30am the following morning! Now that's a fast response time! The work needed to be completed asap and had to be coordinated with my builder. They coordinated perfectly with my builder's schedule. They got the work done fast. And this was all done with very short notice!  They were prompt, professional, courteous, and very informative. They even gave me free advice on a non-related issue that is going to save me hundreds of dollars. They did excellent work and cleaned up afterward! I will definitely be using them on other properties and upcoming projects in the near future.  I highly recommend Barney's Electric!

I'm new to Rockwall and needed an electrician out as soon as possible due to a circuit breaker not turning back on. Jason worked with me on timing to make sure he was here before the AC company - arriving at my home within two hours of my first contact! Amazing service and they will be my first call for any future electrical work.
