Remove Hazardous or Unsightly Wiring with Our Underground Wiring Services

The modern home’s underground electronic wiring needs can extend from everyday power sources to electrifying a detached tool shed or garden pond.

Whether you want to make the switch from overhead to underground or need to repair a faulty installation, we’ve got your back.

3 Benefits of Underground Wiring

Although there are still older homes with overhead service connections, underground services have become the preferred standard. Underground wiring provides numerous benefits, including:

  • Increased protection. By being buried, service lines are virtually protected from extreme weather. They also do not have to contend with branches, fallen trees or heavy ice buildup.
  • Better appearance. Underground service lines do not clutter up the landscape or hang unsightly from power poles leaving your property with a much cleaner look.
  • Enhanced safety. There is inherently no risk of electrocution because underground service lines are insulated, electrically shielded and out of the way.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I find out where the underground electric cable is in my yard?

It’s important to know where your underground electric cables are in your yard or around your office building. There are tools on the market, such as utility and magnetic locators, that can help you determine where the cables have been placed. These tools detect electromagnetic signals or magnetic fields produced by the pipes surrounding the cable. Your local electrician will already have these tools on hand, so it is best to outsource this job and allow a professional to identify, trace and layout the location of your underground wiring.

How much does it cost to install underground electric cable?

The average rate can range anywhere between $5,000 - $20,000. Underground wiring services are a big investment, as they do require a significant amount of work and materials. The cost will also depend on the location of your home, the size of your yard, your electrical needs and any additional property work needed for the installation.

How do you bury electric cables underground?

Before we begin, we’ll need to ensure the property owner has secured an electrical permit. We then map out the property and determine where the cables can be placed. We’ll also measure and lay the groundwork for the installation. Digging trenches will be necessary to allow us to place the cable and connect it to your main electrical panel. The process can take several days and does require heavy machinery. If you’re looking to install new electric underground wiring or need repairs, give Bradley Mechanical a call.
