Billy:

I don’t think it’s quite that simple.

The HF draws a 20A peak load—probably at startup.

I can’t recall the exact #’s, or quickly put my fingers on the specs, but … IIRC … a 15A breaker can handle loads in excess of 15A for a specified period of time, without tripping. IIRC, there are even some breakers that have some adjustment capability FOR the transient surge delay (equivalent to a slo-blow fuse).

I’ll see if I can find the info, and take a shot at whether or not the HF unit would trip the breaker.
