Defective Panel Remediation on Saddle Ridge Drive in West Simsbury, CT
This customer had recently purchased a home with a panel manufactured by Federal Pacific company. The company went out of business many years ago due to the many problems with their products. If you have electrical equipment made by this company you should call an electrician to have it inspected and remediated, it could be unsafe.
Along with a new General Electric Company 200 Amp main circuit breaker panel and components, this home also had a 100 amp manual transfer switch/portable generator setup, that we removed and replaced with a G.E. generator interlock kit. This allows safe connection of a generator to the household circuits and safely isolates the home from the electric grid as required by code.
We installed new pressure treated mounting supports on the concrete wall and a new plywood backboard painted flat black to secure the equipment in place. This customer elected to install G.E. Arc Fault Circuit Breakers as an upgrade to protect their property and family.
All new exterior wiring including a new 200 Amp meter socket with commercial bypass approved by Eversource was installed.
To complete the installation to code we also installed all new grounding and bonding connections, combination smoke and carbon monoxide detectors (made by Kidde). we placed these in each bedroom and on each level of the home.
*Brand Used: General Electric Company, Arlington, Raco, Kidde
