Trying to create two dedicated 20 amp circuits for a treadmill and an elliptical trainer. Both machines supposedly require dedicated 20 amp circuits.
Before you get carried away with rewiring the house, I'd start with investigating this information. I can't think of any valid reason why a piece of exercise equipment would require a dedicated 20 amp circuit....unless of course they're for a horse :biggrin2: cuz that would put you in the 1-3/4 horsepower range for loads.

Thanks! This has been my feeling from the start as well. I do plan to investigate this aspect further
