comment Do the breaker amp readings sum up to dictate my current panels total / possible amperage?
So, assuming one adds a 60 amp subpanel to @JimmyHoffa setup, he should only consider upgrading his electrical service if the main breaker kept tripping, correct? That would indicate the house repeatedly trying to use more amperage than is safe. It's weird to think of it that way, seems backwards.

comment How does one upgrade garage electrical from an In-House main?
...bring the ends of the conduit up vertically at buildings.. Reading this answer, and looking at the house shot in this video, I don't have to enter the house underground, correct? I say that b/c the top of my basement is above ground, and it would be easiest to drop it in right above the circuit breaker, which would also happen to be right next to where the main comes in. Bringing it up vertically at both buildings wouldn't be a problem and looking at both it might be a straight shot, another plus.

comment How does one upgrade garage electrical from an In-House main?
Interesting approach, that's why i stated what the problem, I like out of the box solutions. Don't know if the hose would reach the garage with this approach, even upgrading to a 100 ft hose would be cheaper too if the compressor could handle it. What made you say rewire the compressor for 220, why not keep it at 110?? Something to do with it being outside??

don't know, it's old and thin, likely 14 or higher. I'll double check though.

comment Is it okay to protect NM Cable in an unfinished basement with ENT?
I thought about that, I went with Liquid tight Metallic flex tubing instead. Still have to finish the project, but that will suffice.

I was going to do that (insulated staple), but this is referring to a finished ceiling in the basement. Do you have a code reference for this also?

revised Can Romex (NM-B) be run through conduit?
This question definitely applies to *any* version of Romex, and would make it easier to find.
