Ensure the safety and efficiency of your major appliances with dedicated circuits. SOS Electric is here to assist!
Install dedicated circuits to guarantee safety and energy efficiency for your common home appliances and equipment. Many household items use enough electricity to warrant a circuit with its own breaker. Neglecting recommended circuits can lead to electrical hazards, problems, and potential fires.
A dedicated circuit supports a single outlet and has its own breaker, typically ranging from 15 to 20 amps but potentially going up to 50 amps, depending on the load. These circuits are crucial for protecting major appliances from electrical damage, minimizing the risk of electrocution and fires. If you’re currently using non-dedicated circuits for large appliances, contact SOS Electric.
As per the National Electrical Code, these common household appliances necessitate dedicated circuits:
● Electric ranges
● Large ovens
● Water heaters
● Chest or standup freezers
● Garbage disposals
● Hot tubs and saunas
● Washing machines and dryers
● Heating and air conditioning units
Dedicated circuits are recommended for these appliances and more to ensure optimal safety. If you’re concerned about the safety of using non-dedicated circuits, reach out to SOS Electric. Our team of licensed electricians is dedicated to ensuring your electrical system operates smoothly and safely.
SOS Electric is ready to address any electrical issue or hazard. We can assess and ensure you have sufficient dedicated circuits to support major appliances in your home, maintaining the smooth operation of your electrical system.
For homes or businesses with major appliances, the absence of dedicated circuits may result in the inability to use multiple appliances simultaneously. Signs include being unable to use your blow dryer without tripping a circuit or your refrigerator stopping when plugging another appliance into a specific kitchen outlet.
Most people have multiple devices plugged into a single outlet, leading to electrical noise affecting computers. Dedicated circuits reduce resistance to damaging surges and fluctuations, enhancing computer performance.
