While not all electric problems are easy to see, there are some that are a dead ringer. An old electric panel that still uses fuses is definitely something that needs to be upgraded with a new panel and breakers. These fuse panels have usually been in service for 50 years or more and at the very least should be inspected by a licensed electrician. It is common to see fuse panels where “over fusing” creates a fire hazard on older wiring.
Federal Pacific and Zinsco electric panels are also well known for being potential fire hazards. These 2 brands were developed at a time when manufacturing companies were looking for the cheapest way to assemble an electric panel. Many of the conductive components in these panels were made of aluminum because of the high cost of copper at the time. This is why it is important that as a property owner, you take the initiative in finding out what kind of electric panel you have.
