New sub panel


Right now my fuse panel is completely full, I believe it's a 200amp panel. There is not a open spot left.
What I want to do is add another panel, so I can install a hot tub. The goal is to have the hot tub and a few other things in the second panel, like furnance and my frig.
Could use some suggestions or website to go to for good refernces
Thanks
Barry

Post the pics and tell everyone here your panel make (on the paper on the back of the deadfront door)

Are you sure your pajnel is really full. Are you aware what a tandem breaker is.

I'm new here on this site, but we have a couple of really great sparkys (and great smart electrical men)and yoiu will get good advice here.... and unlike some other sites I've seen... if someone gives incorrect advice (honest mistake)... it will immediately get corrected.

Darn, I would have put money on "I screwed up my 3 way switches. How do I fix them."
