    that will depend on how many heaters you want to install and how loaded is your current srevice.

    basically, if the baseboards are going to be your primary heating system, then you will likely have to upgrade to a 200 amp service. this will meant that you will have to upgreade your wiring from the panel and stack out to the pole.. (unless it is already capable of 200Amp).

    adding a pony panel does not give you more available power.

    rditz is correct, adding a sub-panel is tantamount to, 'I have no money but I still have checks left so,... I can afford it'.

    With the growing electrical requirements you will need a bigger panel anyhow. I am now installing 400 Amp residentials over 200 Amp for an average house. If you are thinking of installing electric heating I would not suggest a 200A, but would recommend a 300 or more. The initial cost will be more but load requirements will be eased in the future.

    So the first ever post from the guy is about a home baseboard heater, then his buddy, or dual personality wants you to go to their website and rate heaters?
    Obviously we need a better way to moderate new users. It would take manpower, but how about first few posts have to be reviewed before posting? Something!

    I know this is a spam thread but wow, we've gone up to a default of 400A services - that's amazing. When did you notice that trend Catmandu?
