In reply to Outlets in garage, what type? by Mike on February 14th, 2000 11:18 AM [Go to top of thread]

MIKE, SOUNDS LIKE A HUGE GARAGE! THE BEST ADVICE FOR YOUR GARAGE IS "BETTER BE SAFE THAN SORRY"! INSTEAD OF PURCHASING ALL GFCI OUTLETS, BUY AND INSTALL GFCI BREAKERS. THESE WILL PROTECT THE WHOLE CIRCUIT NO MATTER WHERE YOU PLACE THE OUTLETS. ALSO, HAVE YOU FORMULATED THE AMOUNT OF AMPERAGE FOR EACH CIRCUIT? DO YOU HAVE A COMPRESSOR OR ANY OTHER "HIGH DEMAND" POWER TOOL THAT WILL BE RUN ON THE SAME CIRCUIT? I SEE THAT YOU MENTION THAT YOU PULLED/WILL PULL (5) CIRCUITS, JUST FOR YOUR GARAGE?! INSTEAD PULL (1) 50 OR 60 AMP CIRCUIT AND INSTALL A SUB-PANEL RIGHT THERE IN YOUR GARAGE IF YOU HAVE SUCH A HIGH DEMAND. ONE LAST THING TO CONSIDER, WILL THE WIRING BE EXPOSED? IF SO, CHECK YOUR LOCAL CODE TO SEE IF EITHER PLASTIC OR METAL CONDUIT IS TO BE USED. REMEBER, YOU WILL NEED TO PULL A PERMIT AND HAVE AN INSPECTION, DEPENDING ON YOU LOCAL ORDINACE. GOOD LUCK!
