Having electrical issues throughout your house? There could be several reasons you’re experiencing these issues. Components degrade and wear down, if you live in an older home, it could lack the necessary power to adequately run modern electronics. Homes without sufficient capacity will experience voltage drop-offs, which can permanently damage electrical equipment and appliances. If your home is more than 30 years old, it could be time for a service upgrade.
An electrical panel (also known as a “fuse box” or “breaker”) is a component of an electricity supply system. This component divides an electrical power feed into subsidiary circuits while providing a circuit breaker for each circuit in a common enclosure.

There are approximately 90,000 electrical fires per year in the United States and the majority are from faulty electrical panels. If you have a panel manufactured by FPE, you need to change it immediately. Panels made by FPE in San Antonio and across the United States are dangerous and pose fire risks.
FPE (or Federal Pacific Electric) was one of the most common manufacturers of circuit breaker panels from the 1950s to 1980s. However, throughout the years, FPE panels continually failed and caused numerous house fires.
If you have an FPE panel, contact Mister Sparky immediately to get it removed and replaced with a safer, modern model.
Another safety hazard to consider: panels made by Zinsco. In San Antonio and in other parts of the country, Zinsco parts are considered obsolete. This is because of a design flaw that causes the circuit breaker’s connection to the bar bus to loosen. This issue causes arcing and overheating problems.
Over time, parts and equipment made by Zinsco can cause the breaker to fuse to the bus bar. This fusing of metal makes it impossible to remove. This also prevents the circuits from tripping, which can pose a major fire hazard. Electrical service upgrades are not optional. If your home is outfitted with old, dangerous electrical equipment, count on us to provide the service that you need to ensure that your home’s electrical system is suitable for current requirements.

Had a problem with electricity arcing in my main circuit breaker box. All lights upstairs would flicker or go out completely. Luckily, I have a home warranty and the cost will be reimbursed. Called for a repair on a Sunday and a tech was at my house in about an hour or so. He took the time to show me the bad panel and breakers (I could hear the pop and crackle of the electricity). The electrician was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The Problem was fixed and everything seems to be working fine. I would recommend them in the future.
Prompt, efficient friendly staff, Bryan and George were both a pleasure to meet and do business with. I would most definitely recommend this company. I would also add how impressed I am with the pride they show in the community services they provide. For me that is going above and beyond.
Called Mr Sparky and they were prompt! We were putting our home on the market and had one issue that needed immediate attention. Within five minutes of arriving they found the problem! Josh was our technician; he was friendly, honest, and courteous. You can trust Mr. Sparky to not only get the job done, but to be fair and not gouge you with high prices. We recently had an electrical storm which caused a power surge and we lost power to a few outlets.
Well my thoughts of Mister Sparky. Well Mister Sparky is definitely on time courteous and very professional. Like one of the family. My first call for any electrical or any Appliance services that I would need. Would be Mister Sparky. Thank you Mr. Sparky.
