How Do You Add Circuits in Your House?

  • Check Existing Capacity – Your electrical service and HVAC contractor will first check your home’s existing capacity at the main electrical panel. If extra slots are present, additional circuit breakers can be added.
  • Check Available Power Supply – Your main service panel is probably configured to receive 150 to 400 amps of current.
  • Add Up Current Ratings – If the total ratings of the existing circuit breakers is lower than the available power supply, then circuits can be added easily.
  • Purchase Circuit Breakers – 20-amp circuit breakers allow for fuller loads on a particular circuit.
  • Wire New Circuits – Wiring of the new circuit as well as the outlets, switch boxes, and junction boxes must be performed before connecting the new circuit to the circuit breaker. Using a 12-gauge electrical conduit with black-insulated hot wire, bare or green-insulated ground wire, and white-insulated neutral wire is recommended.
  • Cut the Power – The power to your main service panel should be shut off prior to circuit breaker installation.
  • Install the Circuit Breaker – Your electrical service and HVAC contractor will install the new circuit breakers into the service panel, connect the wires, and ensure that the connections are secure.
  • Turn On the Power – Once connections are secure, your electric utility company can restore power to your home.
