How should I go about adding power to a breaker box?


Answer by  BrianC2 (117)

Because of housing and electric codes you should get a qualified electrician to do the work. Every city and state has different codes. Each home will have different power requirements. It might cost you $75 or $100 to get the advise of an electrician but at least it is safe.

You should definitely go about it very, very carefully. If I did that I would probably have hair sticking out 18 inches and my eyeballs would be twirling in my head *grin*

There are a couple of choices: piggy-back breakers or a sub-panel which would wire into your main panel and is fed with a 2 pole, 240 volt breaker. Then you can add circuits in that panel to give additional power to your breaker box.
