How electrical panels are sized

Electrical panels are sized in amperes (amps), a unit that measures the flow of electrical current. The more amps an electrical panel has, the more electricity you can run throughout your home.

Most Atlanta homes have one of the following sizes:

  • 100 amps (the minimum required by the National Electrical Code)

  • 150 amps

  • 200 amps

  • 400 amps

Wondering which size your home needs? To get the most accurate size panel for your home, we recommend having a professional electrician calculate your home's electrical load.

That being said, most smaller and medium-sized Atlanta homes have 150- or 200-amp panels. If you have a larger home (3,000+ square feet), you might need a 400-amp breaker panel.

Signs you need to upgrade your electrical panel

You likely need to upgrade or replace your current electrical panel if:

  • Circuit breakers frequently trip. When a circuit breaker trips, it means that the circuit received a larger electrical load than it can handle. If this happens a lot, it's usually a sign that you need to move an appliance to a different circuit or upgrade your panel.

  • The electrical panel feels warm or smells burnt. Heat or burning smells coming from your electrical panel could mean bad wiring or electrical overload. If you notice these signs, call an electrician immediately to prevent risk of an electrical fire.

  • Lights dim or flicker. If you notice lights dimming or flickering when a large appliance kicks on, that means they're on the same circuit and the appliance takes electrical current away from the lights when it turns on.

  • You're upgrading appliances or building an addition. A home addition or larger appliance typically means more electricity. You might be able to add circuits to your existing panel, but more often than not, you'll need a new electrical panel with more amps to handle the additional load.

  • You have an old fuse box. If you have an older home (built before 1965) and and its electrical system hasn't been upgraded, there's a chance that it still has a 60-amp fuse box. These fuse boxes worked fine for small homes that didn't use much electricity, but today's electrical usage (with air conditioners, furnaces, and so on) require a higher electrical capacity.
