What Are Appliance Dedicated Circuits and Why Do I Need Them for My Appliances? Richard Marton Electrical Contractor Explains Below.
Dedicated circuits are required by code. What is a dedicated circuit? A dedicated circuit is a wire run from the electrical panel to an outlet or appliance that draws a lot of wattages. This circuit will be on its own circuit breaker.
Why do we need dedicated circuits? We need these circuits because if we were to plug in a window air conditioner unit (for example) in an existing outlet that is on a circuit that already has 10 other outlets on this circuit there will be a great chance that the breaker will be overloaded and trip. The other outlets already could have other appliances on it already.
Where do we need dedicated circuits?
We run dedicated circuits to kitchen appliances, window air conditioner units, heating and cooling systems, lighting, and an average of about every 8- 10 outlets that we don’t know what will be plugged into them.
