home breaker panels
 
how do i tell if my service is 100 or 200 amps?

You should be able to call the power company, they can tell you what the rating of the service is.

Not really. How would they know?


d5lee2, open you breaker panel door. Look at the main breaker. If there is a number on it 99% sure that is your service size.

Remember that one?

Just look at what's on the main breaker.
Should be written right on the handle.

And don't add the handles together. 100 on two handles is a 100 amp service not a 200 amp service.
