Thats why I figured it would be a better solution.....(cost wise) Not to worried about future cct's as I just re-wired entire home less than a year back (when I completely gutted the place) and didnt come close to loading up on any circuit....it's not a big house at all.
BTW: If I were to install a Square D Homeline panel, I figure a double 60amp would be sufficient to feed the sub panel...........sound about right?
Thanks again everyone for the feedback.
There is two different lines of Square D, QO and Homeline. QO is the better line, but about twice as expensive. Homeline is perfectly fine, I use it a lot.
The 100A 6-12 sub panel is $31 for the QO and $16 for the Homeline
20A breakers are $5.50 for QO and $3 for Homeline
20A tandem breakers are $19 for QO and $10 for Homeline.
Those are Home Depot prices as well as what a typical off-the-street person would pay at a supply house.
Things might be different in Canada...?
