not enough information to give an most buildings have at least 100 to 200 amp service what specifically are you talking about? a water heater is 30 amps but it does not use 30 all time

Low resistance and high voltage cause high currents [in amperes]

an Ampere is the unit that is used to measure the volume of current flowing through a conductor. Just because you have a 30 ampere breaker doesn't mean you are drawing [using] 30 amps. You can have a 30 ampere breaker and be drawing NO load!! The quantity of electricity used in amps, pushed by the pressure in volts is what is stated as power usage in watts. 3 amp current at 120 volts gives a power consumption of 360 watts. totally confused now? worse yet, an ampere is the amount of current that will be caused to flow through a material with an electrical resistance of 1 ohm when an electrical potential [pressure difference] of 1 volt is applied.

A SHORT

Since the equation of an inductor is ... di/dt = v/L ... then increasing the current in the RL network would cause a back-emf in the inductor that would initially seem to oppose the series current. More correctly, the question should ask "what if the voltage were increased?"; and the answer is that the rate of change of current in the inductor would increase, but the current would not initially change. This is the case for a series RL. For a parallel RL, increasing the current would initially show up as an increase the the current through the R, increasing voltage in the L, with the same effect as noted above.
