Insurance Policy Shifts in 2024: The Urgent Need for Property Electrical Upgrades

As we navigate through 2024, property managers are facing an unprecedented challenge: a significant shift in the insurance landscape. Insurance companies are increasingly cancelling policies for properties with outdated electrical systems, making it more urgent than ever for property managers to ensure their buildings meet current safety standards. Tapps Electric Heating & Air stands as a critical partner in this urgent journey towards compliance, safety, and operational excellence.

The Growing Insurance Challenge

The trend is clear and concerning: insurance providers are tightening their policies around properties equipped with electrical systems that are deemed high-risk, such as Federal Pacific and Zinsco panels, and knob and tube wiring. This shift is not just about higher premiums—it’s about the very insurability of your properties. The consequences of inaction are severe, ranging from policy cancellations to significant financial losses in the event of an incident.

Furthermore, the electrical component supply chain is under strain, with delays extending up to a year for essential parts like electrical meter packs. This bottleneck adds another layer of complexity to the already pressing need for electrical system upgrades.
