Reading a book from the library about wiring a residential house.
In the section on service panels it talks about load balancing to keep the heat that the panel emits to a minimum.
We have 240 volt electric baseboard heaters in our house. Based on how the legs of the service panel zigzag, does this mean that the two adjacent 20 amp breakers that protect one of these circuits are load balanced?
If so, then does the load balancing consideration only apply to the sum of 120 volt circuits?
