Subject: federal pacific circuit breaker box

Name: Will

Subject: federal pacific circuit breaker box

Question: We are trying to sell a Condominium, and the buyer has asked after the inspection for us to replace the federal pacific box, as it is a "fire hazard" I am finding mixed opinion on this. Should I push back on this, or just bite the bullet and replace the thing?

Answer: Hi Will,

1. Yes, I do agree with the federal Pacific being a safety hazard. They really were not a good product and I would not want them in my home.

2. Federal Pacific panel are more then 30 years old. At about 30 year it is our view any panel is due to be changed. The general design of a circuit panel is only 30 year.
