How do I determine the age of a Thomas & Betts electrical panel?
Monday, December 6, 2021
Some Thomas & Betts panelboards have a year/month/day stamp on the data sticker at the inside of the panel door, but others do not. Since they were only produced between 1994 and 2003, that that narrows it down considerably, even without a date stamp. For several ways to get closer to the exact year of manufacture when the date stamp is missing, go to our article How do I determine the age of an electrical panel?
It’s also worth noting that these panels often have Challenger 120V circuit breakers.
And to find the age of other home components, go to How can I find out the age of a roof? and How do I determine the age of my air conditioner? and How do I determine the age of my water heater? For life expectancies, visit What is the average life expectancy of the components of a house?
