Do I need to upgrade my electrical panel

The amount of electrical power that you use during the day may surprise you. Calculating the maximum power is more complicated than just adding up the breakers in the panel. There are certain electrical loads that only run for an hour a day and others that run more often. Electrical appliances that can be calculated at 100% are heating loads such as hot tub, baseboard heaters and electrical range. Heaters and Air conditioning units should not be calculated together because it is highly unlikely you will be using them at the same time.
