Replacing a damaged electrical service

by Lauterborn Electric on July 16th, 2013

We at Lauterborn Electric travel throughout the Philadelphia area and surrounding suburbs upgrading and troubleshooting electrical issues. The extreme heat can accelerate an already deteriorating service to failure.

When we arrived at this Fishtown home on a 95 degree day this customer could not turn on the air conditioner without having to shut down the rest of the electric in the home. When we went down to the basement this is what we found.

The image below left shows a panel in disarray. The customer lost one of the feeds coming into the panel and the breakers were staggered by an unqualified electrician creating a potential overload.
