Updating a house to 100 amps

Rated 4.58/5 based on 570 customer reviews

Nows a good time to also think about any other electrical work you may want done i.e .running a wire for a jacuzzi tub, pot lights, etc.

Anyone know what it would entail and cost to do just the upgrade to the 100amp service?

We had a new homeowner's inspection done before we bought, one thing they suggested is upgrading the 60amp electrical service to a 100 amp service.

There is a newer main panel downstairs and then an older panel now used as a subpanel upstairs.

Main problems is we trip the main breaker fairly often if we run the oven and the dryer with a bunch of lights and the home theatre and computer at once.

We try to remember to not do the dryer and the oven cause that's what trips it but its a pita.
