Licensed Philadelphia electrician serving Delaware, Chester, Montgomery and Philadelphia County in Pennsylvania. I install and repair residential, commercial and industrial wiring and lighting. Troubleshooting and repair of problems that stump other people is my favorite. I am willing to help people figure out why things don`t work. I understand motor controls, transformers and machine wiring. I do not teach basics to novices or do free design work.

Just about any home wiring question. (not appliance repair) I have done all kinds of home wiring for myself, including adding a new breaker box, etc. Please, questions from North America only. Please be specific with details. Please note that I am a homeowner who is self-taught. I know a lot, but I am not an electrician. I always base my answers on following the rules. If you are asking me how to jury-rig something, you probably won't like my answer.

It's just my personal preference. You really don't need that many circuits.  Maybe 2 for lighting and outlets, 2 for the kitchen area, 1 for a bathroom. Plus one for the AC.  Plus any for the heating.

2017-01-09 Sub Panel Choice:

I personally am not a fan of sub panels.  You have a lot of empty spaces in your main panel. If you are using a lot of power at the  basement at one time, you would be limited by the rating of your sub

2016-12-24 Electrical conduction of sooty wires:

You had me going there. I had to look that one up!   It is called THHN. It is hopefully dual rated as THWN which allows burial? the W being for wet locations. I don't understand your reference to O&G.
