Customer Question
I have a 100...

I have a 100 amp service to my garage. The meter is mounted on the other side of the wall and has 2 hot wires and 1 common coming in and connecting to my 100 amp breaker. 1 of those wires has 22 volts reading and the 2nd has 222 volts. so 1/2 my panel does not carry service along with my 240 heater. Is this an issue for the power company or can an electrician fix that from the meter?

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

A few months. I thought i blew a breaker to 1/2 my garage and just ididn't deal with it right away.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I have been.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?
