Any repair involving electricity could be dangerous. Don’t attempt to repair your electric meter on your own. Let us help.
A meter base is a gray metal box that’s usually mounted to the outside of your home or business that surrounds the electric meter and protects the wires and connections from the weather.
If the base is damaged, there is a risk of injury or property damage. It is crucial to repair or replace it. If your electric meter box is out-of-date or beyond repair, Welborn Electric can provide electric meter replacement services.
If your meter base is old, in order to meet code requirements, it might need an upgrade. We can upgrade your meter base to a higher amperage. The standard is typically 200A.
If you have dimming or flickering lights it is likely due to low amperage. Upgrading will correct this problem.
It is imperative to contact a certified electrician for all your electrical needs. You can trust Wellborn Electric.
