Ideal height for a subpanel in a living space.


I’ve read the top of the panel shouldn’t exceed 6’7”.

Is there an ideal height? Or is it user preference.

Thanks.

The midpoint of the main breaker should not be higher than 6'7".

6'7" is the height of the main ( or any) breaker, not the top of the enclosure. Within these limits, I would put it whatever height you like appropriate to hang a picture over.
