Late last year my husband rewarded himself and upgraded our old tube television with a nice large flat panel television. The problem we have is that in our family room we seem to have too many electrical items on the same circuit. We are finding that when you do things such as vaccuuming when the TV is on the breaker will go leaving us in the dark. Although the TV is protected by a surge suppressor we really don't like the idea of having this expensive TV put in this situation. The solution we are looking at is creating a dedicated circuit for these components.

Our neighbor, who is a general concractor, suggested we run wiring outside the home in conduit so we don't have to tear up dry-wall. While it makes the problem much easier is this a valid way to solve this problem? Is there something else we should consider?

Thanks in Advance!
