Service Upgrades in San Antonio, TX

Like all things technologically inclined, your electrical system will need occasional service upgrades in San Antonio. This is because components degrade and wear down, but also because older homes lack the necessary power to adequately run modern electronics.

At one point, the average home was built to handle around 60 amps of electricity. However, today's homes can have as many as 400 amps. Homes without sufficient capacity will experience voltage drop-offs, which can permanently damage electrical equipment and appliances.

If your home is more than 30 years old and it hasn't had a service upgrade yet, contact Mister Sparky for quick and affordable service upgrades in San Antonio and for all of the surrounding communities.

FPE in San Antonio, TX

There are approximately 90,000 electrical fires per year in the United States and the majority are from faulty electrical panels. If you have a panel manufactured by FPE in San Antonio, you need to change it immediately. Panels made by FPE in San Antonio and across the United States are dangerous and pose fire risks.

FPE (or Federal Pacific Electric) was one of the most common manufacturers of circuit breaker panels from the 1950s to 1980s. However, throughout the years, FPE panels continually failed and caused numerous house fires.

Eventually, a New Jersey State Court ruled that the Federal Pacific Electric Company violated the consumer fraud act because the company knowingly and purposefully distributed circuit breakers that were not tested to meet UL standards. So, if you have an FPE panel, contact us immediately to get it removed and replaced with a safer model.


Zinsco in San Antonio, TX

Another safety hazard to consider: breakers made by Zinsco. In San Antonio and in other parts of the country, Zinsco parts are considered obsolete. This is because of a design flaw that causes the circuit breaker's connection to the bar bus to loosen. This issue causes arcing and overheating problems.

Over time, parts and equipment made by Zinsco in San Antonio can cause the breaker to fuse to the bus bar. This fusing of metal makes it impossible to remove. This also prevents the circuits from tripping, which can pose a major fire hazard. Electrical service upgrades are not optional. If your home is outfitted with old, dangerous electrical equipment, count on us to provide the service that you need to ensure that your home's electrical system is suitable for current requirements.
