My concern for possibly needing larger gauge wiring is for the possible use of a residential space heater, through the wall air conditioner or window air conditioner.
Combining this with a distance of 40 feet from the panel to the living room.
you're saying one 15 amp (14 gauge wire) for the living room, 40 feet from panel even with possibly high watt appliance use
