Evening all from snowy Vancouver Island.
I need some electrical advice. I know some of this has been touched on before, but I'm asking again so I can understand it clearly. Give it to me please in little words. Whatever I used to know about electricity I forgot in 1984.
I had a nasty surprise this morning when I plugged in my two brand new infrared heaters and found that if I ran them at the same time, plugged into 2 different outlets across the room from each other, it threw the breaker.
So I include some photos. Yes I know it's a mess. Not sure if they'll come out in the right order, but there are 2 photos of the shop in general, one of the 2 heaters, and 2 of the electrical box which is in the garage
So my question is, before I have an electrician come over to increase my power and outlets, can you tell me what I need for a) power and b) outlets and yes, I'm going to ask for 220 too.
I currently have 3 wall outlets only, not including 1 dedicated to the vacuum system. And I have 2 ceiling outlets, one for each electric garage door, although I will be taking out one or both of them.
And Rob, no I do not want to wire it myself. So unless you're flying out here to do it for me, I'm hiring somebody. So tell me what to ask for. Okay?
thanks a million,
