Inspection Perfection monitors trends in innovation and consumer alerts affecting all areas covered in home inspections. Our inspections will alert of specific defective building materials & appliances. These alerts not only identify possible damage but also of potential danger.
Consolidated Industries (formerly Premier Furnace Company)
Zinsco panels were installed in the mid 50’s through the 60’s. Hazards exist with the aluminum bus bars which corrode and create a poor connection with breakers. Breakers are also known not to trip under the designated load. In that case, these units may be well beyond their useful life. It is recommended to have these panels inspected by a certified licensed Electrician.
Have it thoroughly inspected by a State licensed electrician. It may be that it is still in serviceable condition.
Federal Pacific Electric
Manufacturer of electrical panels and breakers from 1950’s until the early 1980’s. Numerous problems plagued this product and make this a serious concern for the viability and safety for a residential electrical system.

Aluminum Wiring Its not the media, aluminum, it’s the connections
Aluminum wiring, used in some homes from the mid 1960’s to the early 1970’s, is a potential fire hazard. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, fires and even deaths have been reported to have been caused by this hazard. Problems due to expansion can cause overheating at connections between the wire and devices (switches and outlets) or at splices. CPSC research shows that “homes wired with aluminum wire manufactured before 1972 are 55 times more likely to have one or more connections reach “Fire Hazard Conditions” than are homes wired with copper. “Post 1972” aluminum wire is also a concern. Introduction of the aluminum wire “alloys” in 1972 time frame did not solve most of the connection failure problems. Aluminum wiring is still permitted and used for certain applications, including residential service entrance wiring and single-purpose higher amperage circuits such as 240V air conditioning or electric range circuits.
