Our company offers an installation of natural gas powered generators that use a sizeable amount of gas volume when they are operating, so it’s necessary to have a gas meter with enough volume to operate the generator and the other gas appliances in the house. If yours doesn’t then it might be time for a gas meter upgrade in Bethesda, MD.

The gas meter typically has a plate on the front that lists its capacity in cubic feet/hour. One cubic foot per hour of gas volume equals approximately 1,000 BTUs. Total up the number of BTUs on the existing gas appliances and add to it the gas usage of the desired generator unit and thus the required meter capacity can be determined.

You might need a heavy-up if your home was built more than 30 years ago. A heavy-up increases the amperage entering the home through its electrical service panel, allowing its system to manage a greater load. Many older homes also need an electrical system upgrade to meet modern demands. When they were built, many tech devices did not yet exist, appliances were smaller, and homes consumed much less electricity.

As mentioned in Part 1, a kitchen remodel’s electrical design and installation can certainly improve the quality of daily user experience, and it can also increase your home’s resale value. Part 2 will discuss Kitchen Lighting, Electrical Circuits, and Contractors.



Kitchen Lighting


An excellent layout of switches and electrical lighting circuits can significantly raise the functionality and pleasure in using a new kitchen. In addition, it can help reduce energy use as well.
