Dedicated Circuit Installation Charlotte, NC
If every appliance in your home was on its own dedicated circuit, you would never trip a breaker or overheat the wires. But that would be far too complicated! Dedicated circuits can and should be installed for many medium and large appliances, though.
Dedicated circuitry lets you use your appliances simultaneously without drawing too much electricity on any given circuit. Overtaxing a circuit is what leads to tripped breakers or blown fuses, overheated wires that get ruined and create a fire risk, and other electrical system damage.
Dedicated Circuitry for the Appliances in Your Charlotte Home
In the Charlotte housing market, we’re seeing more appliances than ever. Specialty cooking equipment, extra refrigerators, central vacuums, dehumidifiers, sump pumps... there are so many heavy appliances to plug in.
Roby Electric will help you determine where you need dedicated circuits and the best places to install outlets for all your appliances. We can add the dedicated circuits to open slots on your service panel, upgrade the service panel, or add a sub-panel.
Which Appliances Need Dedicated Circuits?
The National Electrical Code requires a variety of appliances to run on dedicated circuits. Many appliances can run safely on a normal circuit, but not when lights and other appliances are in use. You probably want to use your waffle maker and coffee pods at the same time, perhaps while running the dishwasher, too.
Dedicated circuits can serve fixed major appliances as well as specific outlets where you like to use medium-sized appliances.
Kitchen appliances that need dedicated circuits include:
- Refrigerator and freezer
- Kitchen sink garbage disposal
- Toaster ovens
- Larger coffee and espresso machines
- Electric oven and range
Other appliances that need dedicated circuitry:
- Washer and dryer
- Heating and air conditioning
- Ventilation, whole house fans, central vacuums
- Water pumps and sump pumps
- Hair dryers, curling irons, other high-wattage bathroom appliances
- Televisions, entertainment and internet devices
