Electrical Question From Jim About Circuit Breaker

Question: I currently have a 100 amp service and am considering adding a hot tub. My panel is full with 12 15A, 7 20A, and 1 60A (double pole) breakers. I have 2 refrigerators, a max of 3 window AC units in the summer, a whirlpool tub, and the usual assortment of kitchen appliances and electronics and a treadmill.


Electrical question about: Circuit Breaker

Received from a Intermediate – Greenwich, CT

Question: I currently have a 100 amp service and am considering adding a hot tub. My panel is full with 12 15A, 7 20A, and 1 60A (double pole) breakers. I have 2 refrigerators, a max of 3 window AC units in the summer, a whirlpool tub, and the usual assortment of kitchen appliances and electronics and a treadmill. The 60 amp is for the electric double oven. Boiler, water heater and cloths dryer are all natural gas. Should I be concerned over adding the required 50A circuit for a hot tub? Thanks

Thanks Dave
