The Benefits of a Dedicated Circuit

Circuits are designed to handle a specific capacity of power in your home. Often times, particularly in older buildings, there can be too few circuits, with a large number of appliances depending on them. This can result in several threats throughout your home, including:

  • Increased energy costs
  • Damage of appliances
  • Electrocution
  • Loss of power
  • Risk of fire
Dedicated circuit installation for residential or commercial

When a circuit is overloaded, it often means that too many appliances are using it at once. You can remedy the situation by dedicating circuits to one or a few small appliances, which will not only prevent risks, but also help you save on your energy bills. JDV Electric can install as many dedicated circuits as needed to keep your home safe and functional.

Dedicated Circuit Options

Just as important as installing a dedicated circuit is making sure it’s the right one for your needs. By dedicating a large circuit to appliances with small power needs, you could end up wasting energy and paying more.

The National Electrical Code requires that any fixed appliance should have a dedicated circuit to itself. The team at JDV Electric has the expertise and knowhow to rewire your circuits so each appliance is running off of the correct capacity. We’ll assess your electrical setup and needs, and provide information on which of the following are appropriate:

  • Kitchen appliances
  • Hair dryers
  • Washing machine
  • Heaters

  • HVAC equipment
