House was built in 2020. Last wiring was in 2019 when basement was finished. When you say how well insulated how do I find that?that is where you can use the meter set up!
when you are on grid...
have everything on that you will be using.
trip the breakers one at a time to find out exactly what breaker has what load on it.
and take notes!!
that is where the blue tape comes in handy if you are doing this by your self!
i use red and black vinyl electrical tape to mark L1 as black and L2 as red on the breakers.
real time numbers work the best!
if it turns out that the box is not balanced out.
swap out the breakers to get it balanced.
that is just moving out adjacent breakers with each other.
get them as even as you can.
for testing the microwave use a large bowl of ice water for a load.
leave room for a toaster or other appliance for cooking like a steamer or deep fryer..
or even a george forman grill. coffee pot etc.
I mark on the bottom of the items with a sharpie what the load is.
and for small 125 vac items use a killa watt meter
click here for the generator test equipment page the killa watt meter is on this page
start on those items for a list now.
and make sure those numbers get on the color coded work sheet.
question for you;
when was the house in question last wired?
what year? and when was the house built?
how well is it insulated?
