    I have an existing 200 amp service with a meter and main breaker panel on TH outside of the garage. I am changing it out for a client to a meter and mind disconnect at the same location that will feed a new breaker panel inside the garage 20' away. I plan on running 3/0 wire in 2" PVC rigid...

    Hi. The other day, I came home to a house that smelled like burned plastic. After inspecting every DIY electrical thing I'd ever done, I realized it seemed to be related to the HVAC. I had a tech come out and he quickly found that our disconnect box in the attic (50 amp connection for air...

    I have a tankless electric water heater running on two 30-amp 240 volt circuits. I want to add a 4-pole disconnect switch near the heater but I can't figure out if I need a disconnect rated at 120V (because 120V is passing through each pole of the switch) or 480V (because 480V is the total...

    Please correct me where I am wrong. I am adding a disconnect sub-panel in to my Work Shed and could use some recommendations. This will be our 3rd winter in this house. Last winter, I tripped the circuits several times while running to many machines at the same time. (eg. table saw, shop-vac...
