I am remodeling my rental in hopes of cashing in after 29 years of being a landlord. I have bought an electric Hallman duel fuel range.

I had to abandon the 220 for the existing the dryer outlet inorder to give it to the range. I pulled in new 10/3 and am going to put that on the dryer breaker.(double 30)

When I looked hard at the panel I am wondering if I should pay to have it upgraded to 200 amp. I add up the breaker ratings and get 305 amps. Its a 1050 square foot 3/2 so I get 3150 watts needed by sq footage and add on 8400 watts for appliances etc so a total of 11550 watts which I think equates to 96.25 amps (11,550/120 = 96.25).

In addition there are 3 chases on the outside wall of the house
1. for the one 220 being abandoned and
2. one for 4 romex and
3. one for 2 romex (all adds to original panel install)

The breakers in the panel are
7-20 amp
7-15 amp and
one double 30 amp (for the new range)

This home survived since 1959 to 1989 as homeowners home and the last 29 years as a rentaql--with no cvomplaints on elcetrical.

What do you think?
