Load okay for 20 amp ciruit?

mikect05December 5, 2011

Hi, I am wondering if I can have a 505 watt heat lamp, a 20 amp receptacle and two wall sconces 100 watt max each on one 20 amp bath Circuit. I just don't know what wattage I should consider the receptacle.


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

A stout hair dryer (1875 W) will put you very close to tripping a 20 amp breaker with the rest of that stuff on. If you won't be using the heat lamp at the same time as a hair dryer, load should not exceed the capacity.
