Best Answer

Since baseboard heaters come in many different wattages vs. lengths I guess the best answer would be, you can load up to 2880 watts of baseboard heaters on a 15 amp two pole breaker at 240 volts.

What causes a light bulb base to separate from the glass?

Over time or by poor workmanship bulbs might come separated from the metal base from hot/cold extremes, vibration or a bang. It can also come loose or break if the base of the bulb becomes stuck in the holder by corrosion. If this occurs it usually trips the breaker but you should check to see that the breaker is in the off position or unplug the lamp before attempting to remove the broken part. Once the power is safely disconnected use a pair of pliers to gently remove the base. You could also use a piece of potato or apple to stick in to twist the piece out.

How would you turn off power to your home main circuit breaker panel if you do not have a control breaker switch or knob?

Find the electric meter. Any homes built in the last 50 or so years SHOULD have a disconnect (breaker) as a part of the meter base. Just flip THAT breaker and it should turn off all of the power to the home. In the event of an emergency, local fire departments will cut the security tab on the meter base and pull the meter, cutting all power to the house. WARNING!!! That's actually illegal and you can get in BIG difficulties, so pulling the electric meter had better be only in the case of a real emergency... Like the house is burning down. If your home does NOT have a meter base with a shutoff, you should contact a local electrician and have your electric service updated.
