11 Most New Home Electrical Wiring Cost Collections - I agree with ed beal that inside the case of electrical panels, larger is higher. At the least greater circuits is higher. You requested if the twine feeding the house would need to be upsized in case you went with a bigger panel on the house. The solution is, no. If you have a a hundred amp breaker feeding the residence now with cord rated for a hundred amps then which could all stay the equal, if you wish. You may then purchase your choice of >=a hundred amp panels to use within the house. For instance any other 200 amp forty circuit panel could be used.

Any other reason to keep away from duplex breakers is if you ever need afci, gfci or anything future thing comes out - the ones are plenty greater pricey in duplex breakers because of the miniaturization required. Do not assume you should use a 100a panel - you can use a larger panel (200a), you simply cannot use a smaller one (70a).
Normally, just replacing a sub panel is a sincere issue. Alternate panel, reattach wires, done. But, this is only a part of a undertaking with a far large scope. You should ponder (i.E. Ask your allowing authority) whether you have crossed the criminal threshold of a redesign. When you have, the whole lot in-scope need to be accomplished to all modern codes. Even ada!.
