Service and Meter Upgrades Explained:
Here at Chamberlain Electric we understand that technology has changed dramatically over recent years, but is your home’s electrical system equipped to keep up with the pace? Between cell phones, computers, tablets and many other devices; our homes use more electrical energy than ever before. Unfortunately, most homes over 20 years old weren’t prepared for this surge in technology. Thankfully the experts at Chamberlain Electric are more than prepared to modernize your home, by upgrading your service and meters.
An electrical service meter upgrade is an intricate operation that ranges from replacing outdated breakers to a complete overhaul of your electrical system. Examples are replacing pipes, the wires in the pipes, panels, breakers and other components. Service upgrades are not only a matter of convenience, but they are also a matter of necessity. At chamberlain electric, our experts will ensure your home is safe, and up to code! The Electical Safety Foundation reports that electrical issues account for over 50,000 residential fires, $1.3 Billion in damage, and nearly 500 hundred deaths annually in the United States.

Electric meters constantly record the amount of power used in your home. Having and accurate account of your power usage can save you money and possibly alert you to electrical issues. Meters are usually located on the outside of your home and are protected from the elements by a case called a meter base. Though meters are often reliable, there comes a time when they will need to be replaced.
After diagnosing, we move on to the repair process. Upon completion, we educate our clients on preventive measures for electrical issues in the future. Electrical problems may appear to be a small nuisance, but they have the potential to be extremely dangerous. Please do not attempt to work on electrical issues yourself. With the possibility of fires and explosions, it is best to get in touch with a trained professional.
