I apologize if this has already been asked but I wasnt able to locate what I was looking for.
We just purchased a house built in the 1960s, its 1500sf.
Currently, its a 100amp Fuse service. I'd like to upgrade to 200amp circuit breakers. My question is, is it as simple as just replacing the panel or do I need to update some sort of wiring as well? I emailed a few electricians in the area and the rate ranges from 400 to 1750. I'd like to be able to do just the panel but I don't quite know enough to figure out what else will be needed. Obviously, I'm hoping nothing else is needed.
Could you educate me? I had a more thorough post previously but then it disappeared on me so this is my second time writing this. Any questions, please ask.
I also included some pics of what I have.
Looking forward to hearing what you all have to say.
