A rusted panel or meter could be something visible on the exterior of the panel or It could also and only be visible on the interior of the panel. Arnold Electric can identify this for you. One of our licensed Chicago electricians will be able to suggest an appropriate solution. Rust can cause a lot of damage to an electrical piece of equipment. A service upgrade, meter or panel change or maybe just a panel change should be considered when rust is present. When electrical components get rusty the rust acts as a catalyst that deteriorates the integrity of all the components in the panel. The rust affects the metal parts that conduct electricity and causes a disruption in the flow of electricity and causes a fire from a poor connection. The screws in a panel will even start to rust and then seize often times not allowing service of the most basic parts of a panel but only replacement. The wire that is exposed out from under the insulation (that attaches to the meter or the breaker for example) will start to patina from moisture and rust and will cause safety issues because of poor connectivity. There are methods to prevent rust and moisture build up in a new installation. Arnold Electric Services, Inc. recommends an annual safety inspection by one of our licensed technicians after new installations to keep up on this moving forward.

Jack is not the typical Chicago electrician. He was patient and answered all my questions. His electrical knowledge was helpful in diagnosing real problems the electric services. Everything is okay for now, and we plan on doing a complete remodel soon.
