I have a question and found some similar topics but could not find the specific answer.
I know ideally that a panel should be loaded equally on both legs but i have read on here also that it is not a big deal for residential.
My question is this: Can i put all of my motors i.e. furnace, refrigerators etc on one leg and all of my lighting on the other, then fill in with my wall receptacles? I ask this to try to avoid the annoying dimming of lights when these motors start and kick in. I have reduced some of this annoyance by switching to CFL's which dont seem to mind the split second voltage drop. Obviously I cannot seperate out the AC as this is 240volt.
Just curious if seperating them is an issue or not.
