Insurance issues with 60 amp service
60 amp service can handle an average number of lights and receptacles. Problems occur as a result of the following:
- the addition of more lights and receptacles
- the addition of more appliances such as dishwashers and air conditioners
- overfusing (i.e installing a 25 amp fuse in place of a 15 amp fuse)
The above examples can lead to overuse or overheating possibly resulting in an electrical fire.
