I currently built a addition to my grageshop, I installed a "Buddy Box" off my main electrical box, It is a 60AMP box, my box has two spaces for two 30amp breakers and 5 additional slots for 15,20,30 amp breakers.
I don't quite understand amps and volts, I want to run my freezer and refrigerator on one 20 amp breaker (is that advisable?)
The only things in my two shops that may run together are.
the refrigerator and freezer.
The Exhaust fan and a standard power tool.
The lights of course.
My Air compressor and a power tool.
With 60 amps and 5 slots how can I wire all the plugs?
refrigerator and freezer separately 2 20 amp breakers. that leaves me 4 slots
the lights 1 15 amp breaker, that leaves me 3.
my exhaust fan 32*32*32 one breaker, 20 amp, that leaves me two.
with 10 more outlets needed for power equipment, what do I do?
Should I get a bigger 30amp Box with more slots?
Should I wire 5 plugs to one 20amp breaker?
I would like to hear anyones suggestions that has experience with this type of electrical situation.
