Ventura, California (PressExposure) May 13, 2011 -- Priority 1 Electric and Service, a provider of electrical repair and installation to home and business owners in Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties since 1999, released a statement today form their local office recommending that homeowners make an annual circuit breaker panel check-up part of their regularly scheduled tasks on their to-do list. The importance of doing it for older homes built before 1974 was explained in the statement.
"If your home was built before 1974, you'll want to get a circuit breaker panel check-up as soon as possible," said the company spokesperson. "Panels made prior to that year by Federal Pacific Electric, Zinsco or Pushmatic/Bulldog, may be defective and could be an electrical safety hazard in your home. The circuit breaker panel is the main distribution point for your electricity and it's supposed to be a safety feature, so a check-up, particularly if you haven't had one in over a year, is a good idea."
Priority 1 Electric's power and safety experts focus on bringing houses up to code. They specialize in the replacement or repair of older circuit breaker panels by early manufacturers, correcting high energy draws by cooling units, and addressing spa and pool-dedicated power needs. Mainly a residential electrical service company, they also do commercial work and employ troubleshooters and technicians who provide top quality work and long-lasting energy solutions to help maintain the value of homes and the safety and comfort of those who live there.
"Here at Priority 1 Electric and Service, our primary concern is the safety of you and your family," said our company spokesperson. "Checking your circuit breaker panel is only the beginning for us. We would like to make sure that your wiring, outlets, appliances, and outdoor lighting are installed properly and don't require any maintenance or repairs. We'll never try to sell you a service you don't need, but we'll always be there to give you the quality service that you want."
In addition to circuit breaker panel replacement, repair and maintenance, Priority 1 Electric and Service also offers 24/7 diagnosis and electrical repair that includes troubleshooting, power restoration, temporary power solutions, and fault finding.
