Electric Meter Services

Upgrading to 200amps or need an old meter replaced?

Upgrading your electric meter and updating your service from 100 amps to 200 amps are a couple of ways to keep your home’s electrical system from getting overloaded. If you’re not sure of what you need based on your electricity use, you can start with a Whole Home Electrical Load Calculation. It’s possible that 200 amps or more might be necessary—especially when you consider both your current and your potential future needs. If you plan to get an electric car or finish your basement, include these in your calculations.

The National Fire Protection Agency updates the National Electrical Code (NEC) every three years. This may sound excessive for national codes, but when you take into consideration the rapid evolution of technology, it’s simply necessary. The technology boom of the last couple of decades has spiked the average American’s electrical consumption significantly. More and more of our daily lives transition to electrically powered technological platforms every day and there’s no sign of that slowing down any time soon. Consider this: with every new device, there is a new demand made on your home’s electrical system. Whether that’s powering your high-res TV or charging your electric car, we simply demand more of our electrical system than we did 20 years ago.

What Our Clients Say

Fantastic Service

I have used Arnold Electric a few times for my business. I wasn’t sure what my options were for lighting in my office. Jack was so nice to bring some samples for me to try before installing! They are wonderful!

Dr. Lauren Shultz

Reliable and Professional

The team over at Arnold Electric has been great to work with. We recently purchased a home and have had Pedro out to do a review of the electrical system, make some minor repairs and present some options to improve the out dated and DIY wiring in our home. The team has done a great job of communicating expectations and explaining everything for us.

Kirk Heavner

Excellent Work

Very easy to work with, excellent work on jobs big (new underground line to a detached garage) and small (changing the interior fixture.

Lauren Harms

Punctual, Courteous and Clean

This company is absolutely the most professional and conscientious electrical contractor I’ve ever had the pleasure of hiring. I’ve used them several times from things like replacing my electrical panel, to wiring issues, to installing a ceiling fan. I will also use them for anything else electrical going forward. They’re always punctual, courteous and clean. I’m very particular, and hard to please. I’m not afraid to call and complain about less than perfect service from anyone I hire. Arnold Electrical Service, thank you for all the jobs well done!

Debbie Neer

Fair Pricing and Excellent Work

Jack’s team came in and did a complete home inspection and repaired a light above my wife’s sink. My marriage has been saved now that the light is fixed. Very fair pricing and excellent work!

Douglas Sheehan

Reasonable Price & Professional

Joe came to my house to fix a dumb thing I did. (DON’T DO YOUR OWN ELECTRICAL WORK!) He was friendly, fast and very helpful, answering all my questions in a polite and tolerant manner.
The charges were very reasonable for the professional quality service I received. They will be coming back to do some new wiring and circuits soon. Highly Recommend!
