Considering what you are asking and how you are asking it, what is involved is getting two or three quotes from qualified electricians and pick the one you feel the most comfortable with to do the job.
You don't need to buy anything. The electrician that does the job will know exactly what to get.
Thanks for your reply , we are trying to get some idea of the approx. cost of materials or what we will have to buy before we call an electrican , we are on a fixed income and would like some idea of a cost before we decide. we live 2 1/2 hrs, from town and would have to hire someone from town to do the job .A rough idea would be great. thanks again
A phone call or two to a couple of local, or local as possible, contractors will be the best method of answering your question.
Labor rates and materials costs, overhead, profit, etc. are very local variables. Unfortunately, we do not have any Canadian electricians here to be more specific.
As long as you hire an electrical contractor, you need not purchase anything but his services, via a detailed contract.
Contractors should be able to buy materials at much less cost than homeowners, sure plus some markup for profit.
They should also be able to choose the exact proper materials, the first time. There are so many various parts that may be or should be used, Each home and electrical service, while all similar, are very much different and unique.
Any price or estimate you may get here will be a SWAG, scientific wildass guess.
please spesify as much as you can exactly what I need to buy
What gets replaced is everything from the connections at the utility service drop, all the way down to the panel and breakers, and also grounding and bonding.
I am not sure what more we can tell you beyond what has already been said. I know you are looking for specific answers, but anything anyone here, or anywhere else on the web, can tell you will be a very vague guess.
A 200A service upgrade here in the states would run anywhere from $1500US to $3500US, possibly higher.
I have a Murray/Siemens LC3040B1200P circuit service panel I would like to use to replace my existing panel. The present service is 100amp and the new panel is 200amp. Is it possible to just change the main to a 100amp main and use the new panel? What is the new main number? Thanks....
I have a 200 amp service with 200amp breaker at bottom of meter loop on the pole. I want to run 100amp service off of this to 2 separate cabins. How do I split from the 200amp breaker to 2 100amp breakers?
