Attention Plano, TX Homeowners: Replace Outdated Zinsco Panels to Ensure Electrical Safety

ABR Electric focuses on urging homeowners in Plano, TX, to replace outdated and hazardous Zinsco electrical panels with modern, safer alternatives that comply with the 2020 National Electrical Code. Highlighting the risks of old Zinsco panels, such as their failure to trip during overloads leading to fires and other dangers

Plano, Texas, United States – March 23, 2024 – In an urgent response to outdated electrical systems in the area, ABR Electric, a leader in electrical services based in Plano, TX, is emphasizing the critical need for homeowners to replace Zinsco electrical panels with modern, safer alternatives that meet today’s electrical standards. This initiative highlights the commitment of ABR Electric to enhance the safety and efficiency of electrical systems in Plano homes, aligning with the 2020 National Electrical Code.

Zinsco panels, once a common fixture in homes until the mid-1970s, are now recognized for their significant safety risks. They have been implicated in numerous electrical incidents, including over 600 fires and three fatalities, cumulatively causing around $80 million in property damages. The primary issue with these panels lies in their breakers’ inability to trip in overload situations, which can lead to severe overheating and potentially catastrophic fires.

ABR Electric’s campaign to replace these panels is driven by the urgent need to protect homes from these known hazards. The modern panels offered as replacements are designed to handle increased electrical loads and are equipped with advanced safety features that prevent overcurrent and short circuits. These new systems are not only safer but also more capable of accommodating today’s high-demand electrical appliances and devices.


James Adams of ABR Electric strongly recommends the Square D 200 amp panel as a superior replacement, stating, “The Square D 200 amp panel is our top choice for homeowners looking to upgrade their electrical systems. It’s designed to meet the demands of modern appliances and electronics, ensuring safety with its reliable circuit breakers and robust construction. This panel is not only easy to install but also built to last, providing peace of mind for decades to come.”
