Meter Socket Installation

meter base installed on your home holds your electrical meter and protects it from the outside elements. Your meter base is responsible for transmitting power from the utility company to your home. If something is wrong with the meter base, your home’s electricity will be affected, and the meter will need to be replaced. Most people don’t know where the utility company’s responsibility ends and where theirs begins when it comes to the equipment that powers their homes, and that’s okay! Your utility provider is responsible for metering the electricity that enters your home, while there is some equipment, however, that is your responsibility to maintain, not the utilities, including the meter socket wiring and the service entrance cable.   

Electric Utility Equipment Responsibility

If you have a wire overhead that runs to your home from the utility pole in your alley or street, you have overhead electric service. The cable that runs from the pole to your home is known as the overhead electric cable. While your utility company is responsible for that cable, you will be responsible for the cost of repairs if you damage it. While many people will seek a meter base installation diagram to make this repair on their own, you must call a licensed professional. 

The area where the overhead cable connects to your home is known as the Weatherhead. This piece of equipment is your responsibility. A Weatherhead with a loose connection can lead to a voltage problem that can cause damage to your electronics or even an electrical fire. The service entrance cable runs from the Weatherhead to the electric meter. That cable connects your home’s electrical service panel to that meter. While you can go online and search for a meter base installation diagram to better understand this, when it comes time for a repair, you must call a certified electrician to perform this job.

Reasons to Replace an Electrical Meter Base 

There are several reasons why a homeowner would need to replace their electric meter base. These include:

  • The meter base is old and not up to building or safety codes.
  • The home is being renovated, or the electrical panel is being upgraded.
  • The meter base is damaged.
  • The interior of the meter base has become corroded. 

If you suspect your meter base needs to be replaced or is damaged, call on the team at Raynor Services.
