Electrical codes don't allow paralleling conductors to increase the 
current handling capacity for small circuits like yours. It looks like 
you'll have to try an idea like Jim's and use a staggered startup or 
install a new 30A circuit. If you look around Brooklyn you'll see lots 
of this done on the outside of homes in order to run large window A/C's.
