GAS METER UPGRADE IN BETHESDA, MD
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.

I wanted to thank you for all the work you have done for us at both of our houses this past year. During a stressful time, you always arrived with solutions and returned again and again to address all the other emergencies and electrical surprises. Your talents and customer service are so appreciated by Kip and me and I just wanted to let you know how terrific it is knowing you are there to rely on. Your professionalism, candor and expertise make our lives better truly!
I wanted you to know that last night at the Finance Committee Meeting I complimented you and told everyone how fantastic you had been throughout our “water damage emergency”. You really were super and your loyalty, support and guidance meant a great deal to me. St. Paul’s Rock Creek Parish is lucky to have you as our electrician.
Thank you! You were fast, professional, courteous and you locked the house securely when you left. Much obliged!
Many thanks to you...and Patrick for getting us ship-shape and ready for the holidays. I've been waiting for Christmas lights for 25 years! And it's good to be able to see in the basement and I know all the plugs are properly installed and grounded. All the best to you.
I just wanted you to know how happy my wife and I were with the electrical service you provided for us recently. You were recommended by some friends and you more then lived up to their recommendation. The work you did the living area of the house - mostly changing the outlets to the 3-prong type- was neat and professional. I particularly appreciate the way you ran the wire on the outside of the house behind the downspout and along a ledge so that it wouldn't show and that you ran the other exterior wires through metal casing so that they wouldn't be exposed. The D.C. government inspector approved your heavy-up with no problems and PEPCO came shortly thereafter to finish their part of the job. Thanks again for the efficient, professional, and reasonably-priced service you performed.
After a series of power outages in our area, I decided to by a back up generator which keeps my family comfortable and allows my home business to continue operating. Walt recommended equipment and supervised the entire installation from delivery to approval by the local utility. He was on site when needed and was available for follow-up questions. I've used Walt's company for years for installation of ceiling fans to additional lighting and electrical repairs. Walt always gives me a day and time for service. it's usually the same day. He is prompt and efficient and his price is competitive and fair.
Very easy to work with, attentive to detail, understood the work I explained. Put in a better switch than I had before.
Truck lighting, scorces, new A/C unit. Excellent. Well Meyer listened to us and found a way to meet our needs, which were a bit unusual.
Numerous recessed lighting fixtures installed throughout the house (~15-20). Ceiling fan installed. Lighting installed in ~five closets. Meyer Electric did a big job for us, including electrical, lighting, and ceiling fan work. Everything went very well, and we were pleased with the work. It is not about six years later, and everything still works great. One thing that was really great about what Walt Meyer did was that he did his best not to create a lot of holes in the wall or other damage that would have to be repaired. He installed a lot of lights (and a fan) and there was very little that had to be done "afterwards" to fix any holes, etc. We were having a painter come in afterwards, so we were prepared to have him patch thing up, but he hardly had anything to do. Meyer Electric did a great job with our project, and we would definitely use them again. In fact since this job was done, we have!
You’ve done a wonderful job beautifying your property with landscaping during the spring and summer. Unfortunately, all your hard work may be unappreciated after sunset. Lighting design can dramatically improve how your property is perceived at night. The following are nine landscape lighting design basics for your home. Consult with an experienced and licensed electrical services company for your safety and the best results.
1) Determine the Purpose First
Before planning an area’s lighting determine your primary purpose. For example, if your goal is the safety of your guests as they stroll through a garden, position lights so the walkways are adequately and properly illuminated. For an area with impressive trees, maybe your purpose is to draw attention to them. To improve security, you will work to enhancing visibility in a location.
As discussed in Part 1, fall is a good time to schedule an electrical safety inspection to help ensure the safety of your home before the holiday season rolls around, when the risk of electrical fire is greatest. They will perform necessary repairs and bring your electrical system up to code. Part 2 will discuss four more tips for electrical safety for the indoors and outdoors this fall.
Rated for specific wattage, a light fixture that exceeds it can result in a wiring overload, and an electrical fire in your home. A fixture’s rating is based on the maximum heat that the bulb produces which the fixture can handle before suffering damage through wires overheating. Lighting fixtures used beneath the requirement may also stress the electrical system of a home.
Fall is coming soon, and it’s a good time to schedule an electrical safety inspection to help ensure the safety of your home before the holiday season when the risk of electrical fire is greatest. Licensed electricians will inspect each room and space in your house and perform an electrical repair wherever they find something unsafe or not up to code. The following are eight tips for electrical safety indoors and outdoors this fall.
Before installing your standby generator, its placement should be carefully considered. A unit’s location will be chiefly concerned with two distances. The first will be the distance from the generator to your home. The second will be the distance from the generator to your electrical service, which is the main panel, fuse box, or breaker box.
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.
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. Creating work areas will help you determine a plan for switches and lighting. One idea is a handful of recessed lights illuminating a work island. Another design idea is track lighting for a counter dining area. A third concept is installing one light over the sink connected to a dimmer switch.
