I need to have an upgraded service panel installed for my 1948 stucco house. Since the clothes dryer needs to be right under where the new panel would be and code doesn't allow this, an electrician suggests mounting the panel on the outside of the house. I am skeptical of the wisdom of this.
How common is such an outside installation?
This seems rather insecure and vulnerable to tampering by someone unauthorized. Is there something I'm missing?
Thanks in advance.
