I was not thinking vacuum as it is usually limited to a few minutes of use at a time. For bedrooms or living rooms I was thinking more of portable heaters or air conditioners as a good reason to limit the number of rooms on a circuit more so than the number of outlets.Why?
I'm installing 5-6 receptacles in a bedroom, even 7. I mean how many TV's will the owner place in a bedroom?
Would the vacuum qualify as the "regular use of a 10A"?
So I should have a dedicated outlet every 15-20 feet along the walls?
As far as commercial, I always thought was 180VA per yoke(I know someone put a picture already...)
People have been buying the stupid electric heaters in a oak cabinet like crazy around these areas thinking they will save a lot on heating bills. Even people that have heat pumps or electric heating systems are buying them.:dunce: Their marketing claims they can't start a fire, but they don't say anything about overloaded circuits in the house or tell you if you don't have a heavy duty receptacle it will melt down the plug and the receptacle:happysad:
