Basically I have this problem and I'm not sure where to start.
This problem is based on a commercial Hairdressers/Salon
g if someone could point me in the right direction in the CEC book to find the following information needed to calculate....
What kind of breaker/How many Amps are needed to Run a commercial blow dryer and a curling iron at the same time?
Currently there are 2 blow dryers and curling irons on the same breaker but only 1 can be used at a time
How many lights can go on a single 15 A breaker? 50w track lighting, 4 tracks with 4 lights each.
can 5 baseboard heaters can be used on a 15A breaker when run continuously throughout the work day? Do you need to upgrade to a 30A? Is that allowed?
The customer has 22 breaker spaces, 2 are spares (available)
There are 2, 30A breakers inside the panel.
I'm trying to find out if the customer would be able to add the previous things into the existing panel or if they would need an upgrade.
I have no idea about how much power a curling iron and a blow dryer uses or where to find that in the code book.
Same with the heaters... I know that Section 8 covers this sort of thing for a residential home but how do I calculate all of this for a Commercial building? Thats the main problem I am having
for the lights... 50w/120v = 0.416A
15A (breaker) /0.416A =36 x 80% = 28.8, meaning that I can put 28 lights on 1 breaker, is this correct?
I'm not really sure how to find this information and trying to figure these kinds of things out is a bit new to me.
