What determines 150 or 200 amp service
I agree with harry.I have seen many 150 amp services, and many ralph lauren official website 100 amp.Sometimes people who want to upgrade an existing home do not want the expense of changing the service entrance cable, so they just replace the main panel box with whatever the main service cable is rated.
In new construction, it ralph lauren outlet on line is foolish to go less than 200 amp.The cost difference is minimal.
Of course not.I did not say they could.That is why i stated that folks who want to"Upgrade"The service panel only could upgrade from fuses to breakers only up to the size,(Rating)Of the service entrance cable.
I usually suggest that both the ralph lauren outlet italia online service entrance cable and the box be upgraded the same time.Many times if the panel box is so old as to be in need of replacing, the service entrance cable is also frayed, or the seal between the cable and meter is compromised, thus allowing water intrusion.If one is going to pay an electrician to do one, they might as well do the whole thing.
If one is proficient in such things, you can do this yourself, as long as you schedule the utility company and the electrical inspector, having everything ready and inspected before the utility company does the switch at the masthead.
Of course, you have to know what you are doing.I have upgraded at least half a dozen electrical services on my homes, doing an excellent, code compliant job, saving hundreds of dollars.It is not usually a diy project though.
Low and behold when i first viewed the panel it was a cutler hammer 30 breaker panel and i was ticked.Our home is 3, 200sf and the builder's electrician said the box was the higher priced one and the amount of money set aside for the upgrade only took care of the better box.Kinda stupid of them not to ralph lauren outlet online contact me but when building a home from scratch lots and lots of things take up time.We are very much in love with the home, however everyone got hit hard in real estate.Prices have been cut in half.No one can build a new home at what the re is said to be worth.We paid 400k+ 46k in upgrades and it is now worth 245k.
Oh well we still love florida and the climate.I doubt i could change it pretty easily, since they have a different setup here then i'm used to up north.The main panel box is mounted outside right next to the meter, with a subpanel in the garage servicing most of the regular conductors in the house.The service entrance then goes underground to a transformer somewhere down the street.
