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 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!
Replaced faulty socket & eyelid can in office. Walt is awesome - also did a total electric heavy up on my home & few years back - v professional, capable & responsible. Best."
Integrating the electrical and lighting systems of your home will allow for automating, controlling, and monitoring every area’s lighting system. A good design will increase convenience, energy efficiency, safety, and security, as well as improve the aesthetics and ambience of your residence. Consult with an experienced and licensed electrician for the installation of a universal lighting control system to get the best results.
The controls that allow customized integration of lighting fixtures are switches, motors, dimmers, and relays. Multiple obtrusive light switches can be replaced by one efficient and sophisticated keypad. Floor and table lamps can also be controlled by being plugged into an electrical outlet that is integrated with other lighting fixtures intended for a specific area.
The capability of controlling every lighting source, electric or solar, is available through several solutions. Discrete control and dimmers are for electric light, while motorized shades and window coverings are for solar light. The latter are especially helpful for inaccessible windows and shades, which can be raised or lowered with a keypad by people with physical limitations.
When every light source is controllable, brightness and darkness levels for every area can be accomplished easily and automatically. As a result, homes and offices have improved climate control, reducing energy consumption and costs.
A single button can control multiple lights preprogrammed at the levels desired for a specific area. Motorized shades and windows can also be programmed for a particular space.
For exteriors, lighting can be automatically automated with sensors for sidewalks and entryways when darkness falls to promote safety and security. Programmed night lighting can also accentuate architectural features, landscaping, and statues.
Programming can also be done for the periods of time when residents are home or away to discourage intruders. Activation can be controlled via a smart phone, tablet, or other remote control device.

For the prevention of shock and electrocution injuries, GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) protection is required for certain receptacles, also known as outlets, throughout a home and its outdoor areas, especially where water can be present.
Either a GFCI circuit breaker or GFCI receptacle can be selected to accomplish this requirement. Depending on the location, there are pros and cons for each. In addition, state and local electrical codes also set forth GFCI requirements.
As discussed in Part 1, Federal Pacific Electric (FPE) Stab-Lok circuit breakers are vulnerable to failure, which can lead to deadly electrical fires. If you own a home that was constructed between 1950 and 1990, you should prioritize finding out whether or not it has an FPE circuit breaker panel with the help of a licensed electrician. Part 2 will discuss FPE Government Investigation and Spotting an FPE Breaker Panel.
From the 1950s to the 1980s, Federal Pacific Electric (FPE) was one of the top-selling brands of electrical panels in the U.S. Millions were installed throughout the nation in apartments, commercial buildings, condominiums, and houses. Unfortunately, they contain Stab-Lok circuit breakers that are vulnerable to failure, which can lead to deadly electrical fires. If you own a home that was constructed between 1950 and 1990, you should prioritize finding out whether or not it has a FPE circuit breaker panel with the help of a licensed electrician.
As discussed in Part 1, expensive appliances and electronic devices can be shielded from power surges by surge protection. Part 2 will discuss Common Home Sources, Surge Protection, and Main Benefits. Rely on an experienced and licensed electrician for the best results.
Common Home Sources
A common event such as the turning on and off of an appliance, like a washing machine, may cause a power surge. Air conditioning units and refrigerators are two of the most common sources of power surges.
Our houses are filled with expensive appliances and electronic devices powered by electricity. Power surges are capable of harming these items to the point where they cannot function anymore. Fortunately, whole house surge protection can be installed to guard against the negative effects of power surges. Consult with an experienced and licensed electrician for the best results.
