Does Your Home Contain Faulty Circuit Breakers?
April 6, 2012
NBC in New York recently did a story on dangerous Federal Pacific circuit breakers – which are known to be faulty and may have been responsible for as many as 2,800 electrical fires last year: NBC News Faulty Circuit Breakers in Thousands of Homes Could Cause Fire
Unfortunately, Colorado homeowners are also at risk. If your home was built before 1990, it may contain dangerous Federal Pacific or Zinsco brand circuit breakers. These faulty circuit breakers were used in thousands of homes across Colorado.
Breakers are designed to “trip” when there is a problem, which in turn cuts off electricity and acts to prevent a potential fire. Federal Pacific and Zinsco breakers are known for not tripping when they should, therefore causing wiring to overheat and eventually causing dangerous and even deadly home fires.
