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.

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.

Can you use a 1200amps service if you have a 1000amps on service?

The current output cannot exceed what is available. 1,000 amp service to a house is rather unreasonable and most likely would not be provided by the utility anyway. 100 amp or 200 amp service would be more likely.


Would a 60 amp service panel the perfect size for a 2800 square foot house?

How many breaker amps will a 200 amp service with no main breaker support?

Check the nameplate on the service panel. There it will tell you what the buss capacity is. On a 200 amp service nothing in the wiring configuration is allowed to be less than that the service rating. In the market there are 200 amp 42 circuit distribution panels.


How many amps is 220 v 60 hz?

That depends entirely on your service. Look at the meterbase to your house; if the shutoff says "100A", you have 100 Amp service. If the shutoff says "125A" you have 125 Amp service... you get the idea.

Can you use a 200 amp automatic transfer switch with a 100 amp service?

Yes you can as long as the sensing coils of the transfer switch are the same as the 100 amp service. The transfer switch has to be able to tell when the voltage is back from the utility side of the switch when the power is restored.
