Expert Electrical Sub Panel Solutions

Are you considering adding electrical outlets, lighting, or other loads to an area of your house, garage, or out building? If so, you may want to consider installing a sub-panel.

A sub-panel is a secondary electrical panel that is connected to the main panel via feeder wires and a two-pole breaker. These feeder wires extend out to the sub-panel, which can then power multiple branch circuits in that specific area. By doing this, you can significantly cut down on the overall cost of the project as you won’t have to run wiring all the way back to your main panel.

Additionally, if a breaker trips, you won’t have to walk all the way to the other side of your home or building to reset it. You can simply reset the breaker in the nearby sub-panel.

Keep in mind that if you aren’t experienced with electrical work, it’s best to hire a licensed electrician to install the sub-panel for you. When working with electricity, safety should always be the top concern.

When is a main breaker required in a sub panel?

The National Electrical Code (NEC) clearly defines specific guidelines for the installation of sub-panels. A main circuit breaker may be necessary depending on the location of the sub. Adding a subpanel in a garage or shed, is an easy way to increase your home’s electrical capabilities.

However, it is important to ensure the safety of the installation. Installing a main breaker or disconnect switch at the main panel is crucial for safety reasons. This lets you turn off power quickly to the subpanel in an emergency, which lowers the risk of fires or injuries.

Be sure to choose the right size breaker for the electrical load feeding into the subpanel. Deciding if you need a main breaker depends on the size of the smaller panel.

If the sub panel is larger than 60 amps, you will need a main breaker. The sub panel can draw a lot of power and the main breaker provides protection. The main circuit breaker will prevent it from overloading and creating a fire hazard.
