So we just framed in our basment. I wired it and landed the circuit on its own breaker. But when I was landing it in the panel my ground wire touch the heater breaker hot wire and the panel at the same time and caused a short.. it also tripped the dining room circuit, even tho that breaker was not where the contact was. Now none my heaters work, not even the one that is on a totally different circuit and breaker. But also if I plug in a space heater into one of the dining room outlets the lights will dim to the point that they're almost completely off and the heater doesn't even turn on. And if I try it on the new basement circuit both the basement lights and dining room lights and basement will dim way down and they are not even on the same breaker. Did I screw these breakers up and need to replace the or could it be one of the phase from the meter or something?
