I will be running electric to my garage from my home pannel which is 200 amps. I already bought some stuff for this last year but I have changed my plans and im not sure if the stuff I bought will still work so please let me know.
what I bought last year :
125 amp sub pannel(8 spaces, 16 circuts) for the garage and a 30amp double throw breaker that was going to go in the pannel in my house to power the whole garage.
I rencently decided that I will be using electric heat in the garage that will require 2 240 outlets for 2 of these type of heaters http://www.amazon.com/NewAir-Electri...521559&sr=8-12
I also want to have a 240 for a welder or something that may need a 240. So 3 240 outlets and in the winter 2 of them will be active when I want to run the heaters.
I dont have much electrical knowledge but my uncle who build my house will be instaling everything. I just want to make sure I have everything in advanced. I will be taking a home depot run tomaro if I figure out everything I need.
So here are my questions.
Is the 30 amp double throw enough amps for my garage and my plans or do I need more? If so what should I get? Same goes for the sub pannel I got. Is it big enough?
My next question is what main wire do I need to run from my house to the garage? I already have the pvc tubing the wire will go in.
Thanks guys hope you can clear this up.
