Re: Upgrading electrical questions.
The panels you have have adequate open spaces for additional circuits but because they are Federal Pacific Panel (cause fires) I would recommend immediate replacement.
You don't say how big the house is or what load calculations you have made or have had made.. Most homes other than fully electric homes are serviced well by 100 amp services, however with the updating you will no doubt require it won't add much to update to todays standard 200 amp service.
