Soundproof a Room Stage2 Part 3

I was fortunate enough to already have a 32 amp fuse board in my garage. Since electrical power will be needed within the practice room, I had to run all the necessary wiring from the fuse board to the required locations in the room.

 

For 240/220v supplies (e.g. UK and Europe)

The following circuits were used:

  • 5 amps for low voltage lighting.
  • 8 amps for a 2KW electrical heater
  • 16 amps for 3 double plug sockets
  • 5 amps for an extractor fan
For 110v supplies (e.g. US and Canada)...
For North American readers your supply runs at 110V, so you will have to double the current load on each circuit in order to be able to draw the same power. So to supply the same power for each circuit quoted above, you would need to supply the following current load:

 

  • 11 amps for low voltage lighting
  • 18 amps for a 2KW electrical heater
  • 35 amps for 3 double plug sockets
  • 11 amps for an extractor fan
