Sub-panel – Conduit vs NM options

By gmanvbva

I am in the process of finishing off my basement and I want to put a sub-panel in.

I only plan on requiring a 35-40 amps (per my load calc) to be fed from the sub-panel initially but would prefer to put in at least a 60 amp panel (breaker).

The feeder to the sub panel would run up a studded/sheetrocked wall, into my garage attic and across to the opposite wall, down this opposite wall and through studs/floor joists and into the basement.

As I see it, my four options are.

1. Run NM 6/3 from main service panel to sub-panel. I understand the NM is only rated for 55 amps but in my research I can round up to 60 and protect this with a 60 amp breaker in the main service panel if my intended load will be no more than 55 Amps. This is definitely the easiest solution but it limits any future expansion to 55 Amps. If I later add a kitchenette in the basement I would be in the 55-59 Amp range when accommodating for the additional circuits (range, small appliances, etc.).

2. Run #6 THHN (6-6-6–8) in 3/4″ EMT conduit from the main service panel to the sub-panel. This is my preferred method since it gives me a true 60 Amps. 75 really… which could possibly be later rounded up to 80; if more than 60 (but less than 75) is needed. My concern with this is I believe I have to run the conduit from service panel to service panel. The gotcha with this is that my interior garage wall sits directly over my basement poured concrete wall. So I would need to bend/offset the 3/4″ EMT inside a bored hole in order to run it down through the wall to the basement and to the sub-panel. I’ve never bent EMT so I’m not sure how difficult this is going to be.

3. Run #4 THHN (4-4-4-8) in 1″ EMT. This would definitely allow for any future expansion but unless my inter-wall offset will be relatively easy with 1″ EMT, this would likely be a complete PITA.

4. 1. Run (2) NM 6/3 cables from main service panel to (2) sub-panels protected by 40 breakers in the main. May be the easiest route to get 60-80 Amps in the basement?

Any feedback, suggestions or alternative solutions?

Edit: I’ve attached a very crude picture of the situation.

David Lee Roth: From Rocker to EMT … and Back

By Neal Colgrass Remember David Lee Roth? The wild lead singer for Van Halen went on quite a bumpy ride after the band broke up and his solo career ran its course in the 1980s, writes Steve Kandell in BuzzFeed . Starting over, Roth worked as an EMT on ambulance calls in New York

Multiple circuits through a single conduit pipe

By T-W-X

Hey all,

Dad and I put in a 3/4″ EMT conduit from his subpanel to his new compressor, a 240V 15A unit, pulling a pair of 12AWG hots, a 12AWG ground, and a 12AWG neutral (that’s currently unused, pulled for future expansion).

I realized after we were done that we want to serve that wall with a 120V 20A circuit and that it would be trivially easy to use the unused neutral and pull another 12AWG for another hot, and to share ground with the existing compressor wiring. I’d then splice to some romex and come out of the metal box, distributing to the other boxes on the wall…

Any issues with this?

Ryan Urban Brings Detroit’s Past To Life With Colorized Image Of Early 1900s Campus Martius (PHOTOS)

By The Huffington Post News Editors

ryan urban historic detroit photo

Developer Dan Gilbert’s talk of transforming downtown Detroit into a pedestrian paradise full of benches, parks, promenades and retail might be hard to picture. But you only have to look back 100 years or so, with the help of graphic designer Ryan Urban, to get an idea of the city’s potential.

In a historic photo of Campus Martius from the first decade of the 20th century, streets belong to pedestrians. Urban (how fitting), a 25-year-old nursing student and EMT who previously studied design, meticulously colorized a panoramic photograph to show the city as it would have looked at the time.

Son of NYC fire commish 'regrets' offensive tweets

The son of New York City‘s fire commissioner has apologized for posting offensive messages on Twitter.

The 23-year-old Joseph Cassano works as a fire department EMT.

The New York Post (http://bit.ly/1133wJg ) says he tweeted a slew of derogatory statements about Jews, blacks and the poor.

Cassano issued a statement early Monday saying he regretted “posting some comments that were offensive, especially since I enjoy my job and treat every patient with great care and respect.”

His father, Salvatore Cassano, declined to comment.

The Post says the younger Cassano’s offensive statements included a derogatory term to describe blacks, and a tweet stating he liked Jews about as much as Hitler did.

22-year-old man charged in Texas college shooting, authorities say

A 22-year-old man has been charged in the shootings at a Houston-area community college campus that left him and two others wounded.

A statement from the Harris County Sheriff’s Office identifies the suspect as Carlton Berry. Spokesman Alan Bernstein says Berry is charged with aggravated assault but remains hospitalized with wounds suffered in the shooting.

Bernstein said no other identities are available.

Investigators say a fight between two people erupted in gunfire Tuesday at a Houston-area community college, catching a maintenance man in the crossfire and leaving students and others cowering in classrooms.

No one was killed, but the volley of gunshots heard just before 1 p.m. sparked fear of another campus massacre less than a month after 26 people were killed at elementary school in Newtown, Conn.

The shooting happened outside between an academic building and the library where Luis Resendiz, 22, was studying on the second floor. An employee called police and then herded the 30 to 40 people in the library into a small room and told them to crouch down, he said.

Keisha Cohn, 27, was in a building about 50 feet away and began running as soon as she heard the shots.

“To stay where I was wasn’t an option,” said Cohn, who fled to a building that houses computers and study areas. All the students were eventually evacuated, running out of buildings as police officers led them to safety.

Authorities offered no details on what led to the fight. One of the people involved had a student ID, and both people were wounded and hospitalized, Harris County Sheriff’s Maj. Armando Tello said. A fourth person also was taken to a hospital for a medical condition, he said.

Mark Zaragosa said he had just come out of an EMT class when he saw two people who were injured and stopped to help them.

“The two people that I took care of had just minor injuries,” he told KHOU-TV. “One gentleman had a gunshot to the knee and the (other) actually had an entry wound to the lower buttocks area.”

The shooting last month at Sandy Hook Elementary School heightened security concerns at campuses across the country. Resendiz said the Connecticut shooting was the first thing he thought of when he heard gunfire and he wondered if a similar situation was happening on his campus.

“I didn’t think something like this could happen. You don’t think about it happening to you,” he said.

Several school districts in Texas have either implemented or are considering a plan to allow faculty to carry guns on campus. While guns are not allowed on college campuses, the Texas Legislature this year may debate a bill that would allow them.

Richard Carpenter, chancellor of the Lone Star College System, said the campus is a gun-free zone that “has been safe for 40 years.”

“We think it’s still safe,” he added. He described the maintenance man, who was said to be in his 50s and listed in stable condition, as “in good shape.”

Daniel Flores, 19, was in a second-floor tutoring lab with about 60 people when he heard a noise that sounded “like someone was kicking a door.”

Once he and others realized the sound was gunfire, they fled to the nearby student services center, where authorities kept them for about 30 minutes before letting them go.

Cody Harris, 20, said he was in a classroom with about six or seven other students waiting for a psychology class to start when he heard eight shots. He and other students looked at each other, said “I guess we should get out of here,” and fled.

“I was just worried about getting out,” Harris said. “I called my grandmother and asked her to pick me up.”

Classes are expected to resume Wednesday.
