Overheating utility wires

The splice above is from the overhead service drop.  While we were doing other work we noticed the wires dangerously overheating and called PSE to make an emergency repair.

This customer had a significant amount of work done. We upgraded his main electrical panel to 200 amps, and installed circuits for an electric furnace. It all started with his 38 year old oil furnace “going out”. This old furnace required a 300 gallon fill up During the winter.  This cost $600 per month for heating. 

Since natural gas wasnt an option in his neighborhood we installed circuits for an electric furnace and because of the efficiency of modern electric furnaces it will be cheaper than oil.
