What size service panel do I need in my home?
Most states call for 100 amps minimum, but with all the new electronic devices, air conditioning and electric heat, we suggest 200 amps, especially in new homes. This level of capability gives you some space for future electrical additions. This installation is not a job for an unlicensed person to attempt. In most cases, it involves replacing everything from the service loop, which is the wire that extends from the top of your meter to the utility tie in, to your main panel.
