A question for any electricians on here. Household electricity is PFM to me, so any information is appreciated.
I am looking at installing (or having installed) a NEMA 5-20P socket in the kitchen for a new toaster. It will be replacing the standard GFCI/whatever amperage that you find in a kitchen.
The maximum toaster draw is 16.9 amps with a wattage of 2025 if that's important.
It would be even better if I could take that wall plug and have it set up as a 208/240v to run a NEMA 6-15P configuration. Then the maximum appliance draw would be 12-13 amps and 2700 watts.
Before I go to too much trouble and expense, can this type of thing even be done? Are these loads too much for standard household wiring? I am aware the C/B needs to be upgraded. And assume whatever is behind those walls is of whatever gauge wiring that a 4 year old build would be.
Any information provided will be taken as recommendations only and no one will be held responsible if I burn down my house as I'm making breakfast.
