    In a regular house... Can you put a 1000 watt and a 400 watt in the same room?

    20 amps at 120v has a 2400 watt capacity!

    Or 2000 to be safe...

    Amps x volts = watts

    Real simple...

    I wouldn't feel safe sleeping with all that ampage on one 20amp breaker, you are running that beyond what it is rated to do. Hire an Electrician and have him run you a 20amp 240v outlet to your grow (it only costs a couple hundred bucks). Most households have 15amp circuits so you might want to check your circuit breaker.
