A good idea for the client to pursue a home inspection on this property. The listing indicated a 100 amp service, however, the home inspector verified that the service was in fact 25 amps, ( 2- 25 amp fuses ) were discovered in the main fuse panel. In addition, the cable servicing the panel was a # 6 copper wire only capable of handling 60 amps. The connecting sub panel was a breaker panel and the panel rating was 100 amps. The rating only indicates the amperage the service panel can safely accommodate, it does not indicate the service size.
