Within the next couple of weeks, I'll be picking up my Volt. It's currently at 4B00 - Car is bayed and awaiting transportation... So, in preparation for this I decided to check the state of the electric lines into my garage. I wasn't planning on putting in a 240V charger. So, what I found is all of the power into my garage is fed on the same circuit. This includes the garage (2 car) door opener, overhead lights AND a gas furnace that heats an addition that is above the garage. I'm thinking that I could share the circuit with the garage door opener, but the furnace has me worried that it's fan, when combined with my Volt's charging, is going to blow the circuit (Standard 20AMP).
What have current Volt owners experienced?
I wanted to avoid the 240V, due to cost, but if I'm going to have to run a new line it might as well be a 240.
