    What is the reasonable cost for an electrical panel upgrade?

    My parents who are old now just installed a central AC in their 40 yr old house in Toronto. Unfortunately, the house still has 60A main panel and not able to support both AC and clothes dryer together. The main fuse blew which is housed in the sealed unit. They had to get an emergency electrician from Toronto to replace the fuse. Now, they do not want this to happen again and will be trying their best to make sure not to exceed the capacity again. Everyone recommended upgrading the main electric panel to 100A capacity. So, I would like to know the reasonable cost for the electrical panel upgrade? Does anyone here know the approximate cost of the specified upgrade?
    It would be great if someone here could help me with the situation.
    Thanks in advance!

    it depends on the measure of the work you are looking to get done.

    Typically it costs $800-$1,200 to have a qualified electrician upgrade an existing panel to 100 amps, or $1,500-$2,500 if a new panel is needed. Expect to pay $1,300-$3,000 to upgrade to 200 amps, or $2,000-$4,000 to go to 400 amps. Installing a new sub-panel runs $500-$1,000.

    Anyway, it may vary according to your requirement and their working hours.
