The electrical service box is the first thing that is important in any electrical job. It might sound like it is a herculean task to install electrical service at your house, but it is a necessary evil, and nothing can go forward without it. If you need to install an electrical service at your house/dwelling, following these general instructions can help make things easier and make the process more pleasing for those looking to get the value for their dollar in electrical work. Generally, the electrical regulations (and they vary from state to state) allow for a service that is as big as you want but not as small. Generally, in this case, the bigger, the safer – if that can be attributed to electricity – in terms of passing inspection! There is always a definitive minimum, which is usually based on the area of your house above the ground.

In more detail, the service size usually requires 2 considerations:
1) The Load (Calculated) – This is the sum of all your potential loads after general demand factors are applied to the calculation. An average dwelling (about 1076 sq.ft.) has an electric stove and electric dyer, but for gas heating, the demand on the service is around 5000 watts, plus another 7000 watts for the stove (6000) and the dryer (1000). Again this is the load calculation, not the actual number of watts the appliance is rated on. For example, the dryer load is 1000 watts on the system if the dryer is a 4000-watt piece. This is referred to as the basic load of the system. Naturally, adding those watts up (5000+7000) is the 12000-watt load you need. Furthermore, we need to find amperes in our consideration. This is found by dividing the total amount of watts by the service voltage size. In physics, the formula is represented by a = w/v. Surprisingly, although we use 120 volts in the plugs in North America, the service voltage size coming to your panel is 2 wires by 120 each. Thus, the service voltage size total is 240v. Remember, Volts and Watts add up; amps do not! So our minimum amperage required would be 12,000 / 240 = 50 amps. Please remember that this is calculated amperage and not the minimum service size because there is a HUGE DIFFERENCE!
2) The Minimums Service Size – this is the number based on the floor area of your dwelling. Generally – 60 amp – for any dwelling which is LESS THAN 861 sq. ft. The area calculation also includes all the areas of all the floors except the basement / or underground section of the dwelling. The underground/basement area is ignored for the minimum amperes requirement. For any place which is MORE THAN or EQUAL to 861 sq. ft. – you generally need 100 amp service. As mentioned above, this includes all the floors except the basement/underground.

Considerations: Even if your total actual load is way below the service size based on your floor space – i.e., if your calculated load is 50 amps, and your floor space requires 100 amps – you need to install the service size based on your floor space, and not your calculated load amount. This is why you can have a serving size as large as you want but not as small as you’d like. The extra capacity (the difference between 50 and 100) is for future use. Even if you are never going to use it, you might one day sell the dwelling, or your kids will inherit the property, and they might want to do something with it; the extra service size has to be there to allow for this future need. In any case, most jurisdictions will not let you get away with using a service size that is too small for the area/space that you have in your house/dwelling.

60 Amp Service Size – (reminder: can only be used if total floor space is < 861 sq. ft.)- Service switch, fuse, or breaker rating – 60 amps- Hot Wire (Black) – x 2 #6 AWG 90 copper – (other colors can be red or blue)- Neutral (White) - x 1 #6 AWG 90 copper- Service Raceway – 1 inch. Or use #6 TECK Cable.- Meter Base Rating – 100 amps.- Service ground wire – #6 or larger – (this is a bare copper, twisted strand)- Service Panel Size – minimum 16 circuits. This panel can generally supply the usual plugs and central gas/oil heating. 100 Amp Service Size – (reminder: can be used for any property that is less than, equal, or more than 1076 sq.ft.)- Service switch, fuse, or breaker rating – 100 amps- Hot Wire (Black) – x 2 #3 AWG 90 copper – (other colors can be red or blue)- Neutral (White) - x 1 #2 AWG 90 copper- Service Raceway – 11/4 inch. Or use #3 TECK Cable.- Meter Base Rating – 100 amps.- Service ground wire – #6 or larger – (this is a bare copper, twisted strand) Service Panel Size – minimum 24 circuits. This panel can generally supply all the usual plugs, a central electric furnace, a boiler, and a baseboard heater.* Please remember that you need twice as much hot wire as the neutral wire. Considerations: At least 2 Spare Circuits are usually required to be left in the panel after you’ve connected all of your circuits. This is for future use. The Minimum Panel Size – is used only as a guideline for the minimum size as to your needs. A project/house/dwelling might require more circuits or a bigger panel amp rating. Always ensure you have the necessary amount of circuit space in your panel. Neutral AWG Size: – some jurisdictions require one to use the same neutral wire size as the hot (feed) wire. Check with your local authorities. Usually, it’s a good idea to use the same AWG for both the hot and neutral wires. Fused Switches: – are rarely used in residential settings, but if you plan to install a fused service switch, it must comply with your local authority regulations. Usually, the regulations require that the service conductor ampacity be equal to the calculated service load or around 80% of the switch rating, whichever is greater. For example, if your calculated service load is 120 amps, the service switch must be 200 amps. In this example, the minimum service conductor ampacity is 160 amps (80% of 200), not 120; the load conductors from the switch to the panel must also be the same 160 amps. Neutral – Can, at times, be bare; some jurisdictions will allow a Neutral wire in the service panel pipe to come from the service meter into the service panel. Something else to consider in regards to this is that using a bare wire saves you money and is easier to work with / form when pushing it through PVC piping with tight corners. On the other hand, the insulated wire can be greased easier. When a bare neutral wire is entered into the meter base, switch, or panel, it must be insulated to protect against contact with any live wires. Usually, this is not a problem as the live wires are separated widely enough for any contact with the neutral. Still, in cases where it isn’t, one must insulate the neutral wire (electrical tape) to the same thickness as the insulation of the hot wire. Also, you would insulate from the entrance until the connecting coupling (any exposed sections). ====================gtg ==================gtg Suppose you have read the information on the Electrical Terminology page. In that case, you will understand that a reduction in circuit resistance will cause an increase in current flow in that circuit and the upstream feeder and main service. We can consider a practical situation to understand what goes on when a breaker trips or a fuse blows. We will use a normal 15 Amp circuit at 120 Volts as an example. If this circuit has a load that would normally draw 12 Amps (like a kettle), we could conclude that the effective circuit resistance is 10 Ohms. We divided Voltage by Current to find this Resistance. Of these 10 Ohms, about 9.9 Ohms is in the kettle, while the cable for the circuit has about 0.1 ohms. Therefore, if the cord connecting the kettle to the receptacle were to develop a fault that allowed current to pass from one wire to the other without passing through the kettle element (commonly known as a short circuit), this would cause the current to reach a value that could be 1200 Amps. This time we divided the Voltage by the cable resistance to find the current. As the cable size increases (gets thicker) to carry more current, the cable resistance decreases, and the available fault current increases. If the fault occurs on the main cables, you may see a 10,000 Amp fault on a 100 Amp circuit breaker. If 1200 Amps appear on a 15 Amp circuit breaker, the circuit breaker should trip instantly. However, we must remember that the 1200 Amps is also present on the main circuit breaker for the panel. This may be a 100 Amp circuit breaker. In such cases, you may find that the main circuit breaker trips more quickly than the 15 Amp circuit breaker. The same can be said for fuses. Sometimes, the main fuse operates near its maximum value for a long and becomes “tired” or “stressed.” In such cases, the “tired” fuse may blow before the 15 Amp fuse. So, how do you find the cause of tripping breakers or blowing fuses? You should start by paying attention to which circuit breaker tripped. If only the 15 Amp breaker tripped, you would have already isolated the problem to that circuit. If the main circuit breaker tripped, you need to find out which circuit caused the problem. Ideally, you will have a megohm meter to test each circuit. If you rely on resetting the breaker to find the problem, this could create more damage, so this should be avoided. You should begin by switching off all of the individual circuit breakers and ensuring that the main circuit breaker is completely OFF. Test the main bus of the panel for a fault to the ground and a fault between the two “live legs” (red to black). With all breakers off, the megohm meter should show infinity. With this done, you know that the main breaker can be turned on. So switch it on to ensure it doesn’t trip with all individual breakers off. Assuming that the main circuit breaker stayed on, you now know that the problem is in an individual circuit….but which one? You now test each circuit, looking for meager resistance. Some of the circuits may have a low resistance due to the nature of the load. For example, lamps may have a meager resistance when cold. So begin by finding those circuits that have relatively high resistance. By switching on these circuits, you may get some light to work since you will likely be working by flashlight. Eventually, you will get to the offending circuit through the process of elimination. Once you have isolated the problem to an individual circuit, you need to look at how many receptacles, lights, etc., are on that circuit. In the case of the kettle example, you would unplug the appliance to see if this clears the fault. If the fault clears, this means that the kettle has a problem. In the case of a circuit with several lights, you should switch off individual room lights. Again, through the process of elimination, you will get to the source of the problem. If there are receptacles in the circuit and portable items plugged in, you should unplug all of these and inspect each of them. If you follow these steps, you should get to the root of the problem. As with most things, you will work more quickly as you gain experience. If you need to replace a circuit breaker, a light fixture, a switch, etc., to solve the problem, remember to avoid used equipment. With used electrical products, you have no way of knowing how reliable these will be, which could present safety concerns. The process above deals with a short circuit. However, sometimes, a circuit breaker will trip, or a fuse will blow due to overload. With an overload, there will be a period between each breaker-tripping or fuse-blowing episode. Usually, the overload will be on an individual circuit, but it can also happen on the main circuit breaker or the main fuse. You can use a clip-on ammeter to test the current being drawn on the main circuit breaker. This can often take some time, especially if heating loads are present. For example, it may happen only at meal times on cold days, so you need to pay attention to the circumstances present when the problem occurs. You solve the overload by re-distributing the load on individual breakers and upgrading the service if the main breaker is overloaded. You can help solve problems by taking the time to label your electrical panel to identify each circuit. When you have some spare time, use it to write down in a notebook which breaker controls each light, receptacle, etc. By doing this, you can avoid overloads by not using an already loaded circuit to plug the steam iron (air conditioner, etc.) into. ====================gtg Whether you are working on electrical equipment or working on other do-it-yourself projects, some rules apply to all situations. 1. Use the proper tools for the job. 2. Remove clutter as much as possible. Keep the work area clean to avoid tripping over items that could have been removed. 3. Wear proper footwear, dust masks, eye protection, hearing protection, gloves, etc., to suit the job. 4. Make sure ladders are in good repair and do not stand on the top or second from the top step. 5. Be aware of who is near you. This is especially important if young children are near you. Do not leave power tools where a curious child may decide to play with them. When working on ladders, be aware of what is happening below. 6. Be aware of the risks of chemical solvents or flammable liquids. Ensure that there is proper ventilation and make sure chemicals are always out of reach of children. If you must smoke, walk outside if flammable liquids are inside (or fumes). 7. Work at a sensible pace. On many projects, especially where mixed material such as cement, grout, etc., begins to dry, people panic and try to work faster. Try not to mix batches larger than you can work safely in the case of mixed material. Keep in mind that you will need light to work by for electrical work. If you start a job too late in the day, it may be dusk with the power still off. Plan and have another light source to work by. 8. Avoid awkward or heavy lifting. Ask for help with the heavy stuff, such as drywall. Also, avoid awkward stretching that can twist your back. This happens a lot when people are on a ladder that is not properly positioned for the job. 9. Do not be afraid to ask for help. Especially when using ladders, it is common for people to risk injury by trying to do it all on their own. If you need somebody to hold a ladder, you should wait until somebody can help. In the case of an extension ladder, you may need somebody to steady the ladder while you climb up and tie it securely. When the work is done, you may need help again for a few minutes to move the ladder so ask for help. The hospitals have too many heroes already. I have lost count of the number of times I’ve seen somebody lose control of an extension ladder. In some cases, other people have been injured by the falling ladder. In other cases, there are no injuries but significant property damage. Electrical Safety Electricity can certainly kill you. Before attempting an electrical project, you should remember that electricians require years of practical training and months of classroom work. The actual training time varies in different states and provinces, but 4 years is usual, with about 8 months spent in classrooms and the rest working full-time on job sites. After 4 years, the electrician is regarded as qualified (Journeyman), but he/she will always be learning. Nobody knows it all. I don't know it all as a Master Electrician with 32 years of experience. Don’t expect to be able to work as fast as a qualified electrician. The work is physically demanding. You will spend a lot of time climbing ladders and moving ladders. You must stand comfortably on a ladder while freeing both hands to do the work. After a day of climbing ladders while wearing a tool belt, you may wish that you had left the job to an electrical contractor. ========================gtg A Typical Lightning and Earthing Issue The Problem I have an alternative power system at my house in an area susceptible to lightning. This consists of a wind generator, 4 solar panels, two inverters, various controllers, and a 1200 amp/hour battery set in a small "energy center". I have already been 'hit' by a remote strike which traveled up the phone cable around the walls of the building and took out my new sine wave inverter!! Although all items were earthed and bonded to a single point, it was insufficient. All items in the system are close together. The fall-back diesel generator is also inside the same building. I have read almost ALL the literature I can find on the Web on bonding/earthing systems and the effects of lightning. My biggest problem lies in that - with the equipment available to me - I cannot sink a 3/8" earthing rod very far into the ground around the house since it is on a solid rock mountainside. Therefore, I would be glad for your advice on various issues. Response First, you don't mention either the DC voltage or the duration of backup , or the power level. I have assumed 120Vdc, 1 hour (nominal) 100A inverters. What was the route from the phone line to an inverter? Can you demonstrate that this was the path by damage, or is this an assumption? Experience tells us it is much more likely a ground strike raising the earth potential of your system and thereby causing the damage. Telephone wires are thin and unlikely to carry seriously damaging currents. Specific Questions 1. Should I use earthing rods of larger diameter? A larger diameter will not help, as the surface area is critical. However, in the solid rock, it is unlikely 1.5 meters would be sufficient. The aim of the earth rod is to achieve a low impedance to the earth of approximately 0.4 ohm. A test drilling and rod measurement would answer how deep you need to go, but this seems like a lot of hard work for little return. 2. Since I cannot drive them into the ground more than 1.5 meters should I use several 'grouped' together? Yes, this "Earth Net" or "Earth Farm" approach is advocated by several experts for overcoming high impedances to earth. 3. If so, how many should I use? This is almost impossible to answer, as there are so many variables. I'd suggest that you put in as many as it takes to get your target impedance value. 4. How should they be grouped? How far apart? How should they be joined? If you put them apart, there is a potential for current to flow between them, so whatever links them together must be low impedance. They should be grouped in a star configuration for small earth farms or a network configuration for larger ones. 5. How should I connect the various items of equipment? One expert report that I read suggested copper "strapping" rather than heavy duty copper wire. To be honest, large-diameter copper wire can cause several problems when conducting high current impulse energy; stranded or braided "strapping" is better but more expensive. It is common practice to use large single strands in external rods/nets and braids where appropriate indoors. In addition, you have the "Aerial" effect where a large loop of copper can act like the loop aerial on a TV and pick up high frequency. 6. What size strapping or wire? Back to your target impedance, there is no point getting a 0.4ohm Earth and then connecting such thin copper to it that you reduce its effectiveness, on the other hand, cost is the limiting factor upwards. 7. Where should the connections be? I'm aware that they should be to the earth point and any frame, but should they be anywhere else? I'd recommend that you avoid Loops and create Stars to your earth point. You need to make connections wherever energy can be created either by fault or by coupling effect. 8. Are the connection points themselves a particular problem? Do you have any suggestions? Again a low impedance connection is an aim, as two clean flat surfaces together are better than a clamp on a screw thread. In addition, each connection point should increase the gauge of the conductor so that the preferred path for energy is the desired direction. 9. Do I run a single cable from each item back to the rods, or can I run a "ring main" around them? I'd recommend that you avoid a loop and create a star instead. 10. What size cables/strapping would you recommend for each item? These should be the appropriate size for the likely "energy" associated with a fault, and should increase in size towards your earth point. 11. A report that I read suggested that the NEGATIVE side of the battery set (2 parallel racks of 12 x 2v [600 amp/hour] cells) MUST also be connected to the common earth. Is this correct? Not, as this depends entirely on your inverter. If your inverter operates with one side of the battery earthed, it should already be connected, although this is down to how good your earth is. If your earth is bad, the connection allows energy into the inverter front end, which is typically susceptible to damage. Conversely, if your earth is good, then this is probably a good idea. 12. What is the additional effect of connecting the batteries into the an earthing system using, for example, more or heavier rods? The only reason for increasing earthing size by connecting batteries is if they are likely to induce an earth fault, which should not apply in your case. 13. Several suppliers have suggested I include several lightning/surge arrestors. Is this a good idea? This is a vast subject. In basic terms, "lightning" cannot be arrested - the best that anyone can hope to do is divert the energy where it will do the least harm. Electricity Substations do this by using large spark "arrestors" which disconnect explosively so, dissipating energy. Large factories and new building installations tend to feature earthing, which prevents the energy from entering their wiring network by diverting it to earth rods. Typically, this is augmented by "surge suppressors," which can absorb some energy, and "surge diverters," which can divert the excess back into the earthing system. However, there is no point in diverting energy to earth if your earth is so poor it will end up dissipating anywhere you have connected to the earth. Moreover, a surge suppressor is expensive and may be a one-shot device for serious amounts of energy. Having said that, a clearly defined approach, identifying good earthing, diversion, and suppression, is what most people look for in these circumstances. Often, however, at least one of these three items will have little effect. The customer frequently needs to contact an expert when one approach has failed. 14. If I use surge suppression, how many devices will I need? Where do I put them? How do I earth them? You need to adopt a zoned approach, with larger TVSS near incomers/outgoing supplies, large pieces of equipment, and smaller devices on smaller systems. Each unit comes with wiring instructions and recommendations , including the size of the earth cable. As before, the earth cable should run back to the star point. 15. How do I eliminate the effects of lightning through and around the walls of the building? You can't completely eradicate these effects. The best you can expect is to deal with the effect and limit the damage unless you wish to line your walls with steel and bury them deep in the ground! However diverter/suppressors fitted for transmitted energy will be just as effective for coupling energy. 16. Do you have any other suggestions that could help? Three additional suggestions might help: - a. Consider earthing alternatives. A recent customer of ours ran a bare cable into the sea because he was on solid rock. b. Consider inverter technologies that are less susceptible to damage. c. Identify the REAL cause of the damage and spend money to fix that problem. The biggest problem with earthing and transient suppression is spending money on the wrong solution. ==============gtg ================gtg Our electricians have over 35 years of industry experience.
