I wish. Gas stove and gas dryer.
The only 220V circuit in the house is for the A/C, but tapping into that would be iffy as well. As it is we already have to refrain from using the microwave or dishwasher when the A/C is on.
I've looked at the breaker panel and it's already maxed out to capacity. It's an old house that was apparently wired to the grid back when people basically just had the lights and a tv as far as electrical use. The landlord is talking about upgrading the service to the house, but he's having money problems right now so it'll be awhile. (Which is why he's renting it to us (cheap, btw), he can't afford the mortgage payments so the only way for him to not lose the house was to move in with family and rent it out until he's back on his feet.)
