The sub panel (or distribution panel) in your home is one of the most important components in your electrical system. Current code requires AFCI (arc-fault) protection on all 15 and 20 amp circuits in your home (except bathroom and laundry). Most older panels do not support these types of circuit breakers and should be replaced. The worst panels to have in your home are a Zinsco or Federal Pacific brand panels. These brands may fail to trip in the event of an overload and are a potential fire hazard. Call Alley Electric to evaluate your sub panel and make recommendations to enhance the safety of your home.

If your kitchen or bathrooms are stuck in the '70s, it might be a good time to update the electrical. Most older kitchens were not wired up with heavier load appliances in mind.

Give Alley Electric a call to have your kitchen or whole house evaluated.
