A dedicated circuit is an electrical line coming directly from the breaker panel to supply power to a specific area or device. Some devices or appliances require connection to a dedicated circuit so power can be supplied safely, effectively, and in compliance with the National Electric Code. Without dedicated circuits, there is the potential of overloading the home electrical system, which may cause fires or other safety hazards.
Most commonly, dedicated circuits are used for kitchen appliances, laundry appliances, microwaves, heating/air conditioning units, water heaters/pumps, hot tubs, saunas, specific areas in the home, and electric car chargers.
If you have any circuit breakers that frequently trip when using a specific device or appliance, chances are you need a dedicated circuit installed for that device. Contact the professionals at Same Day Electric to check or install your dedicated circuits!
