Renovation/Landscaping Safety

When you plan to make major improvements, SHELD can
be a valuable partner.

Powering Your Home Safely


Almost everyone has dreams of how they might want to upgrade the style or comfort of their home. If you get to the planning stages of a major improvement such as building an addition, adding a pool, or having central air installed, please give us a call.

In some cases, particularly with historic homes found throughout South Hadley, we may need to upgrade the electrical equipment serving your home to meet the new power needs of your improvement project.

Clearance to Power Lines


Even for smaller improvements you may make in your home or even your yard, it is important to allow adequate room around electrical equipment. When you are considering a location for a structure such as a flag pole or fire pit, or where to plant a larger landscaping item, be sure to keep any objects at least 10 feet away from electrical equipment.

Not sure about where power is located? Call SHELD for advice.
