Patio halogen heaters wiring

Postby jamiehodges1 » Wed Oct 29, 2008 10:47 am

I want to fit two 1500w or 1300w outdoor heaters off a 13A wall isolation switch only problem is this switch controls the outdoor light which 500w is this going to over load the circuit?

Seen another similar post check Part L regulations don't think you can do what you want also Part P to consider max watts on 13 amp socket = 230 x 13 i.e. 2990 watts.
