How to Test Electrical Power Quality from the Electric Utility Company

There are certain tests that can be made from the electrical utility company office, however this may require an extensive power quality test to be performed at your location, or on the utility company line by the electrical utility company. It would be revealing to see if the voltage reading drops low when some of the electrical loads come on at your home, and readings throughout the daytime. If the voltage drops below 110 volts then this may be an indication that the electrical utility company has some upgrading to perform to their system. This of course is aside from the fact that there cold be a problem within the home electrical system, which can be tested thoroughly by a qualified electrician.
