Split Phase Balancing
I understand the theory behind split phase balancing. In the real world power consumption is not always the same so what factors do you look at when moving breakers around? For me, especially in the winter, the pellet stove is on a lot while the central heat only comes on in the morning usually. The wife has her morning routine with hair dryer and curling iron, mircrowave and toaster would not be in play at the same time. Washer and gas dryer would not coincide with the bathroom or kitchen appliances. What I am trying to get at is like when the washer and dryer (same circuit) are on not much else is being used, except maybe the pellet stove in the winter, so this would not be in balance. Am I overthinking it and going down the rabbit hole? Been known to do that.
