2 20 amp breakers 1 wire?
hi, i recently bought a house (built in 1965) & while i was doing some electrical work in my kitchen i noticed that one wire with 2 hot legs (red & black) was being used, but each leg was connected to a different 20 amp breaker. is that normal? i would think a double-pole breaker should've been used, no? also, would i be able to take one leg and use it for a refrigerator and 2 outlets and the other leg for a dishwasher, 2 outlets, light w/ switch? thanks
