Your Electrical System: What’s Yours, What’s Ours

Posted: May 1, 2019 at 1:30 pm

In the wake of Hurricane Irma in September 2017, many of our members were surprised to learn that certain electrical components are their responsibility to have repaired. Our linemen are unable to restore power to your home if the home can’t safely accept it.

If your weatherhead, service bracket and riser, meter socket, and any related components are damaged, a qualified electrician must make repairs before your home can be reconnected. These repairs can be costly. Are you prepared?

PRECO has selected HomeServe® to offer optional Exterior Electrical Line Coverage for our members for a low monthly cost.

With a HomeServe plan, if your home’s exterior electrical components need repair, you simply call HomeServe’s repair hotline. A HomeServe specialist will collect information from the homeowner and have a local contractor contact the homeowner to arrange an appointment.
