unsure of your home's amp service? check these locations in your home:

electrical panel

  • locate the panel on a wall near your furnace or water heater, or where utility power enters your home.
  • inspect your electrical panel for label that indicates its amperage rating.

main breaker

  • find your main breaker — it's the largest breaker in your electrical panel. 
  • look for the capacity written on it or adjacent to it.

power management 

make your backup power go further with a power management system. it prioritizes power for what you really need, reduces fuel costs and allows you to use a smaller-size generator to power your home.
