The booming housing market has put many Americans into new homes. While some have used remote jobs to move to more affordable areas, others have upgraded to a larger home or built new ones. If this includes you, congratulations on the move!
While you hopefully love your new home, you might love it a little bit more with the proper underground infrastructure. Out of sight, out of mind upgrades to your home aren’t exactly the most exciting way to spend your money, but you realize how much better your home looks and the increased value, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner.
Beautifying your home is more than just planting a garden or cutting the lawn. It’s about the entire outdoor space as a whole. While you can add accouterments to your outdoor living areas or the front facade of your home, nothing improves the aesthetic like underground infrastructure.
Imagine removing the power lines, cable lines, and other utility cables from the front, side, and rear of your house. The visual improvement is beyond reproach. And with the extra space you save from putting all your utility cables underground, you can add a pond, patio, basketball court, or whatever else makes your home just a bit more comfortable or entertaining.
One of the biggest downfalls of above-ground utility lines is that they’re susceptible to all kinds of extreme weather. While they’re built to withstand rain or snow, utility lines can become damaged if they’re exposed to high winds, sleet, freezing rain, or ice.
Moreover, damage to these lines during inclement weather can create safety hazards that can take days or even weeks to clean up. By keeping them underground, you avoid any potential of dangerous conditions.
Another great bonus of putting your utility lines underground with underground infrastructure is that you don’t have to worry about outages. While weather plays a part in this, so does temperature and humidity.
The temperature below ground stays between 50 and 60 degrees year round, which can prevent damage to any utility lines. This means that your power, internet, or cable TV stays on, especially during bad weather when you need these utilities the most.
While underground infrastructure may cost more than overhead feeders and utility lines, it’s an investment that pays for itself over time. If you want to sell your home at any point, it’s more attractive to buyers. Plus, you can tout the underground lines as a selling point because they’re impervious to weather. Think of it as an investment rather than a sunk cost, and you’ll feel comfortable moving forward.
