I understand about the pictures being to big. It is my first pics. I did not realize how big they were. I did take some pictures of the panel boxes for the inspection for the purpose of the job. Just didn't want to plaster them all up.
Basically the entrance wire appears to be sized for 60-100 amp ( I said a 100) because the orignal panel is a 100 amp rating with a 100 amp main disconnect. This panel has a story in itself.
Inside this one is a 50 amp for the Electric Stove, 30 amp for Electric Dryer and a 60 amp for the A/C. So this is a quesstion in itself.
Then the second panel added in the cellar whether it is a sub panel or not comes off the meter. Panel Box is rated for 125 amps with no main disconnect. This feeds the Furnace and the house has been rewired from this. To what I am not totally sure of all what.
For where I was standing, it was a little house with little service feed and a big demand. I made the call on this one and I am 99.6% correct.
.4% is for human error. I call this Home Owner Idis.
The sad part about it was the owners just bought this house 2 years ago and was never told by his inspector about the electric. Stated he never went into the cellar. I can see that because it is a crawl space and it was a stature above crawling in the dirt.
