I am purchasing a house that is maxed out the 200A Panel: no circuits left and a few have been double-tapped.

Given that I will need to add a few new circuits down the road, I was thinking of adding a 100A Subpanel. I am also interested in adding a Transfer Switch to this setup. The Transfer swich would allow me to turn on/off any of the breakers that I need at the time.

Can anyone provide any suggestions here as to how this could be configured? I fully intend to hire a licensed electrician for the Transfer Switch, possibly for the subpanel too. I am well-versed at working on the breaker panel(adding circuits,etc) but the transfer switch is clearly beyond my capability.

Thanks,

Please hire a licensed professional for this one. He can provide a listed panel/transfer switch combination unit that can be installed by your main panel. The critical circuits can be moved to it and a power inlet installed so you can easily plug in your generator. Mr. Electric
