I am planning out some renovations to my Garage and I need some advice with what looks like really messy wiring!
I have one outlet on the left side of my garage. I want to add at least two more towards the front on this side plus maybe an additional 2-3 on the other side.
The single outlet has a wire conduit coming in from the roof to the outlet:
There is a 12 gauge white wire coming out the right side:
This then goes to the thermostat:
I am trying to understand the setup here! There doesn't seem to be a breaker for this circuit. There is however a breaker for the lights in the garage, that is it.
What would be the correct way to wire in the new outlets as I assume this current setup is not ideal?
- Should I add them to the existing light circuit?
- Add a new circuit and put them on that? I think I have 1 empty spot in the breaker.
