What Appliances Need a Dedicated Electrical Circuit?
A dedicated electrical circuit is a circuit set aside for a specific purpose. It has its own circuit breaker and is intended solely for single appliance use. Because no other appliance can be plugged into or use that circuit, it is dedicated to that one appliance. These are so important for electrical safety that they are required by the National Electrical Code!
Major appliances that require dedicated electrical circuits:
- Washing Machines
- Space Heaters
If you have any questions about whether your appliance needs its own circuit, a licensed electrician is the best person to ask!
Why are Dedicated Electrical Circuits so Important?
Dedicated circuits are important because they prevent a whole electrical system from being overloaded by one appliance. Major appliances use a lot of energy and should have their own circuits to prevent overload and reduce the chance of an electrical fire or other issue. If you’re adding a new appliance, you may need a dedicated circuit. An electrician can offer insight regarding your particular appliance based on your existing electrical system.
