The main service to your home has many components. It first starts out at the street and comes to your home either underground or overhead. This portion of your service is controlled by the power company; this is the only portion that they are responsible for.

After reaching the meter, the lines then run into your home and to your main panel. That is where the main service ends.

Common Main Service Problems

There could be several reasons why a service would need to be repaired or replaced; the most common is storm damage. Falling tree limbs can not only damage the home itself, but they may land on power lines pulling them from your house and causing major damage to your electrical service. Most situations will result in replacing the service altogether.

Assessing the damage to any service is vital to ensure proper repair/replacement is done. Your main service is the backbone of your electrical system and having it inspected and maintained is important to the life of your service. Call now for a full home inspection.
