Video Series: Install a Subpanel

Whether you're building an addition or renovating an existing space, a new subpanel may be the easiest way to add electrical circuits to a house. In this video series, a licensed electrician shows you everything you will need to do the job right.

Length: 0:54
Produced By: Rob Wotzak and Cari Delahanty

Instead of originating at the main service panel, electrical circuits can begin at a nearby subpanel that is powered from the main panel through one heavy-gauge cable. This configuration saves wiring, energy and your footsteps to a distant panel to reset a tripped breaker.

This members-only video series includes:

  • Fitting and Fastening the Box
  • Running the Main Power Feed
  • Installing Circuits and Breakers
  • Subpanel Safety Tips
