So you're the guy putting in the 20 circuit panels. It drives me CRAZY when I go to do a job where they "already had the service changed, it was such a mess of different boxes". Well guess what lady, I'm adding another box, because the last guy put in a 20 circuit panel and there is no space left. Murray has a 30 circuit 100 amp main breaker panel for about $60.00 at the depot. Oh too answer your question I would charge closer to $900 or more for this. (Massachusetts)

There's nothing wrong with lots of spaces/circuits as long as the total load isn't more than the MB can handle. All those circuits are not maxed at the same time. If you keep overloading the MB, then at that point I guess you realize it's time to upgrade the whole service.

I agree with CRW. Here we must use a min 150 A panelboard. I use 200A 42 space panels and yet have had one overload the Main. Seems just as easy to put in the larger as it is to have to go back and upgrade and deal with poco again. By the way price on upgrading to a 200 A service and reconnecting existing wiring is $700 on average for me.

skpjr, that price is outrageously low. Materials alone for a 200 amp service run abou $300-$500 for me. I was doing 200 amp upgrades for about $1200 but now with the afci cost and the time it takes to identify all the bedroom circuits it'll run $1500 and up. By the way what kind of panel do you use, I have never seen one with 42 circuits.

Electricmanscott, I goofed. It is a 40 circuit panel, musta lost track when I had to take my shoes off to count them,lol. I use the Square D Homeline panel from the blue house (I know but the price and reliability are right)and I do not currently have to go the AFCI route yet. Our jurisdiction has not gone to the 2002 code, AHJ is kind of slow about upgrading and he is still iffy on when we will move up. I might also mention that I am still trying to get my business to the point I can do it full time, currently work midnight at a factory maint dept. Does seem my price is a little low but gotta go with what the market will bear. May need to re-evaulate pricing.
