Re: federal pacific electric panels
It is a good question and since I'm not an electrician I don't split hairs on good ones or bad ones. If I see a Fed Pacific or Zinsco I just write up what I see. I tell my clients these panels have been known to have issues and may not be safe. I always recommend they be replaced by a licensed electrician. If the electrician comes out and says it fine I tell the client to get it in writing that the electrician feels the panel is safe.
I personally wouldn't let my family live in a home with either of those panels. But, that's just me.....I'd rather replace those aged pieces of junk. I don't write that in my report, but I may "mumble those sentiments".
