23 Oct Meter/Panel Upgrade
Here’s the before and after photos of a panel we just completed:
Notice how much cleaner it looks, and safer this is. All of our work is inspected and approved by local jurisdiction.
This Home had a short in the meter they were dropping one of the legs so they lost their 220 and were without their dryer and their A/C we got on this fast and got their power up and going restoring their comfort in their home and life.
Here’s a meter that needed an upgrade. This old meter has a few problems. It was only designed for about 60 to 70 amps and the new meters we install are a minimum of 100 amps. The new meters have the ever important disconnect to not only turn off the power to your home in an emergency but to provide additional protection from overloads shorts etc.
On top of all that, the old meter has no grounding protection. We added the required grounding and went above and beyond whenever possible. There was also the clearance issue with the overhead wires/conductors. We made sure they are at the right height. We did this using what is called a “mast” or a “riser” going through and above the roof and when required supports back for the load.
Here is the box we cleaned up and replaced.
To provide additional wiring, sometimes we need to cut a hole into the wall. If we are just replacing the panel then most of the time there are no cut outs/repairs.
