Absolutely not. #2awg conductors are only good for about 100 amps depending on Cu or al. see nec table 310-16.

How can I tell what my home amp service is?

Look on the handle end of the main breaker. There should be a number there. That is the amperage of the main breaker. That is the size of your house service.

How can you tell what the amp service is in your house?

I would have to say that the amperage label on the main breaker would designate the amount of amps coming into the house.Look at the number on the handle of the main breaker. That number is the rating of the breaker and at what amperage the breaker will trip. If you have a main fuse switch the number on the fuse is the tripping amperage. This will be the amount of current that the service is rated at.


Can you run parallel number 6 wires to feed a 100 amp breaker?

No, the electrical code only allows #1/0 conductors and larger to be paralleled.

How do you find out how big your main breaker box is?

Simple. Your main electrical panel will have a "main breaker". This will be a two pole breaker, usually at the top of the panel. It will have a number on the breaker "handle" such as 150 or 200. This is the maximum number of amps your panel can supply. Most newer homes, 1975 and newer have a 200 amp service.


How many amps are in a typical circuit breaker?

There is a number on the end of each breaker handle. This number represents the maximum amperage handling the breaker will allow before tripping. There is a number on the end of each breaker handle. This number represents the maximum amperage handling the breaker will allow before tripping.


What size breaker do you need for a home ac unit?

It depends on the size and efficiency of the unit. Look on the service plate on the unit. It's a sticker the manufacturer puts on. It will have the model and serial number and a max fuse/breaker rating. This will tell you what breaker can be used with that specific unit.

Can triplex be run in underground conduit?

YesIn Canada the answer is no. Triplex is an aerial rated set of conductors that are used to bring the voltage from the utilities pole to the service drop at the home. Triplex consists of two ungrounded conductors wrapped around a neutral steel supported conductor. These conductors can be used on higher current capacities due to the direct cooling of the conductors by the surrounding air. This is why you will see a service drop of number 6 conductors supplying a 100 amp service. For a three phase four wire system quadplex is used to make three phase connections to commercial and industrial services.


If ther are more than conductors in the raceway the ampacity of the conductors must be derated?

Ampacity must be derated depending on the number of conductors and the ambient temperature. In the Canadian Electrical Code Table 5C denotes derating for the number of conductors. 1-3 conductors = 100% load 4-6 conductors = 80% 7-24 conductors = 70% 25-42 conductors = 60% 43 or more conductors = 50%


Can you upgrade a 100A main circuit breaker to a higher amp?

It depends on a number of factors. The size of the service wires, the meter rating, the main breaker panel rating, etc. will have to be rated for the amperage you want to go up to.
