An electric meter measures how much electricity is used by your home and are used by the electric company to bill you.
A manual meter uses two coils that make magnetic fields. One coil reacts to current, and the other reacts to voltage. The magnetic fields turn a small disc. This then turns dials that displays the amount of energy used. A digital meter has sensors that measure the current and voltage and records it electronically.
Just like anything else in your home, an electric meter can break. If the disc turns too quickly, the electric company might overcharge you. If it turns too slowly, your electric company will not charge you enough and will probably require you to replace it. A digital meter may short or become fried due to an electrical surge. Additionally, old meters can potentially cause safety issues. If you upgrade or replace your electrical service it may also be necessary to update your meter. It is important for your electrical panel and meter to be up to date.
If your electric panel is very old or the wires to your meter are weathered and cracking then it may be time to consider consider replacing or repairing your electric meter. American Air can quickly and efficiently make the upgrades you need.
