Understanding your home’s electrical system is extremely important and goes a long way when you need to handle electrical problems that arise. A main breaker load center – also known as the main electrical panel – routes electrical connections throughout your home to keep the lights on, electronic devices powered up and kitchen appliances running.
The Home Depot has all your main breaker load center needs covered with helpful buying guide
videos, a wide assortment of options from top brands and much more.
Choose the Correct Size & Amps
When it comes to your main electrical panels, the year your house was built will typically determine the number of amps (electricity) it receives. Your electrical meter box, mounted onto your outdoor main breaker panel
or inside a wall, collaborates with the load center to safely distribute the correct amount of electricity to every room and outlet in your home.
We offer main breaker boxes in several sizes and configurations with a range of maximum amperages:
• 100 amp main breakers
• 150 amp main breakers
• 200 amp main breakers
Whatever you’re looking for – from 200 amp Square D main breakers and Leviton’s load centers
to Siemens commercial-grade value kits, plus Eaton load centers
and GE load centers
applicable with our everyday low prices – we have the brands and features you want.
Before you buy and install a main breaker panel, please check with local authorities and your utility company to make certain the panel you select conforms to local code requirements.
Also, make certain the floor and other areas around your electrical panel are completely dry before beginning any type of electrical work. Install enclosures like breaker box covers or sub panels to provide additional protection.
