Questions from a newbie
This has been probably answered many times but I don't know what to search for. I have read the FAQs and have tried reading the first few pages and couldn't find answers to my situation.
I had an electrician come over and give me a "consultation" (which I paid for, of course) but his answers were quite vague (as I now understand), so I am still confused.
I was told I had a 16 amp circuit where the old wall oven had been. I thought they came only as 15 amp and 20 amp? Was it a miscommunication or there is something I don't know?
If I am going to install two 24" ovens reach requiring 240 V 15 amp each, do I need two 15 amp circuits or one circuit with higher amps? The answer to one of the FAQs seems to indicate the latter. Is there a considerable price difference between running two lines with lower amps vs. one with higher amps?
I have three free breakers on the panel located inside the house. However, the only 240 V (15 or 16 amp) circuit we have is connected to the breaker on an outside wall of the house. Is there a reason why it couldn't have or shouldn't have an inside breaker?
I was told I could use the available circuits on the inside panel for 240 V 15 amp circuits but not 50 amp one, that one has to go to the outside wall. What about everything in-between, like 20 amp, 30 amp, or 40 amp?
