Along with the subject:
I plan to tap into my Air conditioner circuit for power into my small 120 sq feet shed.
The AC unit uses a 50 amp breaker, whereas a 30 amp will be plenty according to the faceplate of the AC unit.
The AC is 240 volt with ground. I plan to use such a ground as the neutral of my 120V supply into my shed, (and one of the hot, the black one, of the 240 volt as the hot of my 120 V into the shed).
Any coment as to safety?
The neutral and the ground are on the same bar in the only breaker panel in my house.
Will Ground Fault Interrupt in the shed still work?
I will be using a 15 amp breaker for the shed. The actual power for the shed will be very low, just for lights and a small electric drill, perhaps.
This is for myself, if I ever sell or rent this house out I will disconnect the power into my shed.
