A Rusty Panel Needs Attention

February 20, 2018

This tenant needs to be evicted.This rusty panel certainly needs professional attention. It has been subjected to humidity for so long that a slug has moved in and taken up residence. To function safety, an electrical panel needs to be kept clean and dry, so this slug needs to be evicted today. Rust and corrosion inside the panel are very damaging and if left as is, rusty panel circuits will soon begin to fail as the rust, corrosion or eventual arcing, destroys the contact points. A completely preventable situation will then become an expensive repair.

Your electrical panel is the most important part of your electrical system. It is a piece of equipment that requires periodic maintenance by a licensed electrician. Picture the panel as the heart of your electrical system, sending power to all the circuits throughout your home much like the heart sends energy rich blood throughout the body. A rusty panel can not do this task reliably.

If your electrical panel has been neglected, shows signs of rust or corrosion, and possibly at risk of failure, give us a call. Our technicians can give it a thorough safety check-up and make any required repairs to keep your electrical system functioning safely for years to come.
