How do you upgrade your own electrical panel if you don't have the money for an electrical contractor?

You can enter an apprentice program and spend at least 6 years

learning the trade. Then pass the test. Electricians are not born,

they study and work to acquire their skills and if anybody thinks

"HOME DEPOT" can help, in this case they cannot. Call a Pro. By the

way I am not a Licensed Electrician, I was very lucky to work with

Professionals and learned what my limitations are, my advice is

given after 30 years of learning that engineering doesn't make you

an expert.

Electricity is dangerous!

You can be injured or killed!

Improper installations can cause fire, injury and death!

Are you qualified to do this work?)


National Electrical Code definition, NFPA 70 2005 Article 100 I:

Qualified Person. "One who has skills and knowledge related to the

construction and operation of the electrical equipment and

installations and has received safety training on the hazards

involved."

Unfortunately, he is right

You wouldn't try to remove your child's brain tumor because you

can't afford a surgeon. This isn't brain surgery, but can be just

as deadly.

You may find that there are programs where you live to pay for this

on an emergency basis, or there may be loan programs set up to help

with low-interest loans.

Call the municipality where you live and ask about loans and HUD

programs.

Call every charitable organization you can find or think of.

Try your church...

Sorry, but I won't help you kill yourself.

As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice

anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise

what work is needed.

Before you do any work yourself,

on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,

always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact,

de-energized.

IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB

SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY
