Electrical, Timer, House Ventilation Switch, High/Low Voltage - For instance as you recommend, i might set up two "stars", one on the panel and one, approximately i do not know, the kitchen. I'd take every receptacle to whichever "star" is nearest. In some cases that could turn out to be being a home run to the panel. The drawing is cut off and we can't see most of the outside receptacles, however it looks as if they may be mostly on the a ways side of the constructing from the panel (lower left and i in reality wish the panel isn't always outdoor, it is inquiring for problem).
I recognise some locations like the philippines use 2 breakers in line with circuit, and panels get pretty crowded pretty speedy. You may get panels with as many as 84 spaces - panel areas are reasonably-priced, purchase masses of greater. You could also do sub-panels - that is probably a great idea given the dimensions of the residence. In case you had a sub-panel in, say, the laundry room, a whole lot of these issues would go away. You'll ought to do a load calculation to look how big the subpanel ought to be, too large isn't always terrible. It cannot exceed the size of the primary breaker obviously. Your building is edit: 54x58, it really is seventy six' on diagonal, plus 10' twice to get to the attic; ninety six'. That would be approximately 5.6 voltage drop at complete 20a, or 1/2 that at 10a. In case you strictly observe the 3 voltage drop on max present day rule, you can simplest get fifty one' out of 12awg... But it's now not the guideline. The actual rule is try to stay round 3 for the actual ampacity you assume to apply, so for a 12a electric lawnmower you are a tick over 3 for a 96' run. No large.
What's the max period for a base board heater? There's no max period however there may be a max voltage drop. Since you did no longer provide the load there may be no manner to assist apart from factor you to the net voltage drop calculator. Easy to apply enter the data and it'll provide twine size. Use three for max voltage drop. You are manner over thinking the voltage drop, inspite of massive houses i've by no means used extra than #10 and this is due to the fact the owner wanted it. You'll have a hard time locating a 20 amp breaker this is indexed for #6 wire.
