TARPON SPRINGS – Small seaside town. Tarpon is known for the sponge docks and Greek Heritage founded in 1876. The chamber of commerce in Tarpon Springs is a great source for additional information. Here is a link. www.tarponspringschamber.org. Since the town has a lot of older homes one of the things we look at certain types of electrical panels.
Zinsco and other potential hazarded electric panels
One of the panel brands is Zinsco, and over the years Home Inspectors & electricians have noticed that certain Zinsco and some other brand panels often can fail to operate as intended. As a result that is why this could leave some homes and homeowners vulnerable to both fire and electricity shocks. The panels could overheat without warning- catching & fire!
There has never been an official recall for some these defective products, However if one of them are found in a home we would recommend further evaluation by a licensed electrician or replacement. When looking for a Home Inspector Tarpon Springs FL or any other location around Tampa Bay FL that is licensed to perform four-point inspection on your property or if you’re just having a wind mitigation Inspection it’s always best ask if they’ll also check electrical panels for open recalls or outdated models before any work is done on them! The other recommendation when inspecting electrical panels is ensuring there are enough amps running through it depending on how big your house happens to be- this includes having ample amperage when the house comes with pool(s) or jacuzzi(s).
Remember that any work done around this should only be handled by qualified professionals: Licensed Electrician first then Home Inspector secondarily once everything passes their inspections. You can always contact us for more information or just have a question.
