Is my Fed. Pacific Board Safe
There was an electrician working on a house near me and I asked him to replace a light for me. He noticed I have a Federated Pacific board and said they aren't safe as they don't trip. Now, I'm really worried about it and wondering if i should have it changed. He quoted about $1100 or more. But, I have an electric company I usually use that is very reasonable and I think would be much cheaper, but not sure.
Actually my first question is the safety of the board I have and do I really need to change it? My house is small and I don't have outlets overloaded. Was built in 1978, FL.
