Not sure if your electrical service is properly grounded? An ungrounded or improperly grounded electrical system will expose your home and your family to very unsafe level and risk of shock and electrical fire. If your system is not grounded properly it might also be an indication you’re in need of a complete service change. Arnold Electric are experts at 100amp service changes and 200amp service changes. Check your electrical meter outside and see if there is a driven ground rod under the meter. Should it be connected to your meter with a pipe and a wire? If there is not a driven ground rod outside your system is not properly grounded. Your primary ground is derived at the water meter. Arnold Electric’s licensed techs can come out and assist you and identify if these two points of ground are present or not. Our techs can help advise you on the age of the system the state of the system and any potential solutions. Sometimes it is possible to ground and the existing electrical system. Sometimes the whole system including the grounding system meter and panel are all due for an update and upgrade. Arnold Electric will take you through our 32-point whole house safety inspection to help you identify any of these issues. We take it even a step further and do a load assessment on the property to ensure the electrical meter, panel and grounding system are all sized properly for a 100amp service or a 200amp service. We take all the guesswork out of it and have a uniform process.
