Customer:

it would be great if you give me answers to those questions so that I can submit the answers

AssuredElectrical :

1. Tell them, you will supply the 10x10 with 20 amp circuit for the receptacles and lights. 2. In the L shaped room, supply will be 2 20 amp circuits with half of the room on each one. 3. You will supply the heaters with one 240 volt 20 amp circuit for the 2-1000 watt heaters. 4. You will supply the 2-1500 watt heaters on a single 240 volt 20 amp circuit

Customer:

how do I answer this. Do I have to specify number for each circuit

Customer:

?

AssuredElectrical :

specify what number?

Customer:

number of lights and number of recepticles on each circuit

AssuredElectrical :

I stated that---------the 10 x 10 on a single circuit

AssuredElectrical :

You have to count the receptacles and lights, I do not have a drawing

Customer:

including heater in that 10 x 10 room ?

AssuredElectrical :

the L shaped gets 2 circuits

AssuredElectrical :

NO

AssuredElectrical :

Heaters are separate as I posted

Customer:

okay I got it

AssuredElectrical :

you can put the bath light/fan on with the 10 x 10 room or supply another circuit for it, your choice

Customer:

How much watts of heaters I can add to one 240 v and 20 amp circuit?

AssuredElectrical :

You could put 3500 on a 20 amp circuit. I prefer to keep it maximum at 3000

AssuredElectrical :

Code allows the 3500 watts, actually 3800, but most heaters are in 500 watt increments

AssuredElectrical :

1800 watts maximum if you went with 120 volts, thats why 240 volts is best suited

Customer:

Okay.thank you

Customer:

Can I just answer those questions in text format or do I have to do any drawings again?

AssuredElectrical :

I would think they should accept a written text that spells out how many receptacles and lights on each circuit. Specify each room and all items on the one circuit. Do that for all the circuits and bath receptacle.

AssuredElectrical :

Example: Circuit #1 is 20 amps 120 volts, #12 wire. Consists of 9 receptacles and 5 lights. All receptacles to be Tamper Resistant

AssuredElectrical :

Do the same for each circuit and that should have all the info they asked for

Customer:

Thanks for your help. I really appricate it

AssuredElectrical :

Glad to assist, you are very welcome

Customer:

bye

AssuredElectrical :

have a nice day, bye
