Solana Beach home inspection reveals a ITE Pushmatic main electric panel. These panels were commonly installed in home built from the 1950s to the 1980s. This type of panel is easy to identify because the do not use a left to right type breaker but a push in to activate or deactivate type of breaker. There are several opinions about this type of panel between electricians. Some state that the breakers have a reputation not to trip when they should and that these breakers are difficult to operate.
