Dedicated Electrical Circuits
For Equipment & Appliances

A Dedicated Electrical Circuit is an electrical circuit powering a single outlet, appliance, or piece of equipment. Certain appliances and equipment use more electricity therefore to ensure uninterrupted power and avoid overloading a shared circuit they should be on their own Dedicated Electrical Circuit. Dedicated Electrical Circuits prevent the overloading and overheating of a multi-use circuit.

How do I know if I need a Dedicated Circuit installed?

  • An appliance or piece of equipment has a motor
  • The equipment or appliance is used to heat, freeze, or cool
  • Breakers trip when an appliance or piece of equipment is turned on
  • Lights dim when the appliance or piece equipment is turned on
  • A Dedicated Circuit is required per the manufactures instructions
