Purchased a 230v Kobalt Air Compressor and was looking for some educated suggestions on hooking this up. I have wired in a 220 receptacle for a welder, but was thinking of going straight to the servicebox/breaker with wire if possible. Appreciate any help and suggestions with wiring this up. My box is the standard 200amp service with plenty of space. EDIT: 230v/15.7amp My preliminary questions: 1. Wire type? 2. Breaker amps; will a 20amp cover this? 3. How do I determine which breaker type I have?
