  • Firstly, you’d have to upgrade the main service panel to a minimum of 100 amps
  • Fit dedicated circuits in the service panel for all the home’s major appliances.
  • Allow for a space of about 6 to 8 feet between electrical outlets throughout the house in order to cut out the need to run extension cords which could be a fire hazard.
