Humming sound from electric cable attached to house

10 years ago


The electric cable from the pole to my house isn't buried, and it connects to the outside of my house right at my master bedroom wall.

The problem is, in my bedroom, I can hear a fairly loud humming sound. You can hear it quite clearly at night, which is fairly annoying when trying to sleep.

If you put your ear up to the wall, you can hear the humming quite clearly.

I got an estimate from an electrician to bury the cable, and I had him listen to the humming noise, and he said he had never heard anything like it.

Before I spend 2k to bury my cable (which should hopefully get rid of the noise), I'm curious if anyone has ever heard of anything like this before.
