comment Does voltage play any role in choosing the appropriate wire gauge?
Add I said above, current defines the size of the conductor. To oversimplify, voltage can be easily converted to current, and vice versa. So by increasing the voltage, you can reduce the conductor size. And reducing the conductor size makes the wires cheaper.

That sounds a bit high, but a bad thermal expansion valve could definitely cause this problem.
