So as some of the regulars here know I don't do much residential work so I thought is pick a few brains. We recently bought a older home and between the initial interior reno's and the Comming of winter I haven't had a chance to poke around outside much. A new 200a service was installed for some unknown reason(all gas appliances except hottub) but I'm not going to complain as you can never have enough power. What a noticed first is that the garage and some interior lights are on the same circuit. So I figure first order of business is to fix this up as I would have needed more power for my woodshop anyways. I have a super low roof so I couldn't figure out how they got the new power to the opposite corner of the house for the hottub when they did the panel upgrade. I did some checking today and found they ran a sealtight down the outside of the house along with some exposed nmwu outdoor cable, no pipes no protection for the kitchen reno they did(work done by electrician I'm told). Question is how often do you guys see circuits added in like this. I'm thinking I may cut it back and run it all in PVC along with my new power for garage. In all honesty they put the new panel in the worst possible spot the could have for acess.
