Electrical Service Relocations in Calgary, AB and Beyond
Your Calgary home's electrical service consists of the metal housing that contains your electrical meter. Connecting to the electrical meter are the service power lines that come from your electric company. The electrical meter is usually located on the outside of your Calgary home and is situated between the overhead or underground service lines and the electrical panel that's normally located on the inside of your home in a closet space, garage, or laundry area.
There are times when the electrical service system needs to be relocated or moved to a different area of the home. When you need this service, you'll need a highly trained expert Calgary electrician who's licensed, qualified, and experienced to relocate your electrical system components correctly and safely. Never count on an electrician who doesn't have this expertise in their background or list of regularly performed services or you could wind up with a home that catches fire or sends you into electrical shock after the technician leaves.
Why Would I Need Electrical Service Relocation?
There are many reasons for electrical service relocation:
- Electrical Service Upgrades
- Electrical System Remodeling
- Electrical Panel Replacement
- Moving Electrical Service Boxes
- Electrical Meter Replacement/li>
- 200 Amp Electrical Service Upgrade/li>
- Electrical Service Replacement
- 200 Amp Service Line Upgrade
- Electrical Service Upgrade Code Compliance
You may either be planning to remodel your Calgary home or you may have purchased a home that was remodeled at some point and now the electrical system needs to be relocated.
For instance, say you purchased a home that had a deck added on later and the electrical meter and wiring supplying your home with power is located on the same wall the deck was built on. The problem now is that the deck made the distance between the land and power service lines too close together, and now the wiring (your 100 amp service wires) coming into the home hangs too low at a dangerous level.
In this scenario, the 100 amp service lines no longer meet the current Calgary safety code of 11.5 foot clearance from the ground. Situations like this are dangerous and need to be rectified by relocating the 100 amp service lines.
Remodeling your Calgary home can also mean you've added on or rearranged your home involving the wall where your exterior service lines are located. You'll also need to relocate your electrical service lines, meter, and panel box to a different location.
Sometimes our customers need to power large equipment in their detached workshop or garage. In this case, it's best to have the power go straight to that area first and then to the house. This is the most safe configuration to ensure the large consumption of power in that area are sufficient without affecting your home's power system.
