Meter Box Replacement
The meter box attached to your home serves a very important purpose, and meter boxes must be installed and configured correctly according to local regulations. The meter box on your home contains the electrical meter that measures the power flowing into your home from the local grid. This meter box must be shielded from the elements to accurately gauge power consumption, which in turn allows the power company to bill you accurately for the energy you use.
Maintaining Your Meter Box
It’s vital to have a meter box installed correctly according to applicable codes. They need to be installed a certain distance away from the structure and embedded a certain distance into the ground. The meter box itself also requires grounding to ensure no electrical interference causes problems for the structure.
Meter boxes must be kept outside, so this means they are vulnerable to the elements. The variable climate of the Chesapeake area means that your home’s meter box must be able to withstand high and low temperatures throughout the year as well as a wide range of severe weather. If your meter box becomes damaged in any way, you and everyone in your home face a significant risk of electrocution and other electrical accidents.
