Right, essentially my point. I thought I saw some posts about just attaching to another circuit to add 20A service…Pretty much any 20A circuit that exists in a house (assuming no 20A circuits above and beyond code-required has been installed) is only allowed to have receptacles in certain locations.
For example, you may not add a receptacle to a 20A kitchen/dining room circuit that isn't in the kitchen or dining room.
You may not add a receptacle to a 20A laundry room circuit that isn't in the laundry room.
You may not add a receptacle to a 20A bathroom circuit that isn't in a bathroom.
