Outside Meters & Services

As a homeowner, you’re responsible for maintaining the condition of your outside electrical meter and system — not your utility company. Bring out the electrical experts you trust with your indoor electrical system to service your outside electrical meter.

Outside Meters & Services to Prevent Electric Shock

Unlike other electrical equipment, your outside meter system is exposed to the elements 24/7. That means this high-voltage equipment is at a greater risk for weather damage. In fact, severe water infiltration can short out the meter or cause arcing. Our electrical experts can safely examine and repair the weather head, meter socket, and wiring — meaning your system stays operational and safe.

Outside Meters & Services to Protect Your Main Electrical Panel

If the seal on your outside meter becomes compromised, rainwater can infiltrate your main electric panel – dangerous for you and your electrical system. Since water proves such a deadly electrical conductor, this emergency should only be handled by an experienced electrician. Contact us to find and fix this electrocution hazard.

Outside Meter Damage

If damage to the outside meter is causing an improper reading or restricting your electrical use, Mister Sparky Electric can contact your utility provider. We have experience working with most regional suppliers and can help you receive the proper equipment quickly.
