Like many homeowners, you may not think about the electrical panels in your home very often, yet they’re extremely important. Circuit breaker boxes – also known as breaker panels or main breaker panels
– keep the lights on, electronic devices powered up and the refrigerator running. They host circuit breakers designed to safely distribute the correct amount of electricity to every room and outlet in your home.
The Home Depot has all your breaker box needs covered, with a wide selection of options from top brands, electrical know-how, helpful buying guide
videos and more.
Choose the Correct Size & Amps
Before you buy and install a breaker panel, please check with local authorities and your utility company to make certain the panel you select conforms to local code requirements.
When it comes to main breaker panels, the year your house was built will typically determine the number of amps (electricity) it receives. Check the electrical meter box
, which can be installed inside or out, to determine the amperage your home needs. If possible, it’s also a good idea to match the total amps, number of spaces and number of circuits in the breaker panel you plan on replacing.
We offer main breaker panels in a range of maximum amperages:
• 100 amp panels
• 150 amp panels
• 200 amp panels
• 400 amp panels
Additional sizes and configurations may be available to fit your needs.
The Right Brands
Whatever you’re looking for – from 200 amp Square D panels
and Leviton’s line of smart breaker boxes to quick installation options from Siemens, Eaton commercial-grade value packs, plus GE breakers applicable with bulk price savings – we have the brands and features you want.
Always 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.
