If you notice any electrical issues in your home such as outages, flickers
and breaker flips, it’s best to monitor the movement of your electrical
meter. It is typically located on an outer wall, basement or utility closet
in homes. In apartments, it’s near the building in a cluster. While
these type of meters are reliable, often lasting years, these issues need
to be addressed by a professional, certified electrician.
The following are some common issues with a faulty electric issues:
Spiked energy costs – Ranging from minute to substantial, sometimes reaching up to a
$1,000, these increases in your energy bills is a clear indication something
might be wrong with the electrical meter.

display itself. On occasion, check for messages like “fault,”
“battery” or “error” and take care of the issue

movement from the parts of your mechanical meter, these are clear indications
of a malfunctioning meter.
