Most new homes are wired to handle almost all of your electrical needs. Certain appliances, however, use too much energy to be connected to just any circuit—things like dryers, microwaves, and ranges all need dedicated circuits in order to work properly without any interruptions in service. If you’ve been having problems with large appliances plugged into normal outlets and you need dedicated circuits for your appliance wiring, call the residential electricians at Kolb Electric! We are the masters of appliance wiring and can have your dedicated circuits hooked up in no time. Our professionals will even hide the wires behind walls and patch up any holes we cut so your appliance wiring will be effective without being an eyesore.
Call us today at 877-287-1179877-287-1179 for appliance wiring services!

What Appliances Need Dedicated Circuits?
Washers and dryers – washers and dryers require more energy than almost anything in your home and require dedicated circuits from the electrical panel straight to the unit. Today’s dryers also require 4-wire circuits, outlets, and cords. Kolb Electric can have your washer and dryer hooked up to their own circuits so they don’t overload your electrical system!
Microwaves – many older homes don’t have the wiring required to properly power a microwave, meaning that every time they try to heat food, they’re putting more and more strain on the electrical system. Worse, a new trend is emerging where microwaves are installed over the range using exhaust fan wiring—this is a disaster waiting to happen! At Kolb Electric, we can install a dedicated circuit for your microwave so you can use it safely.
Window air conditioners – many people who buy window air conditioners are told they can just plug their AC into any outlet and be fine. This is not always the case! We often see people who install window air conditioners and then complain of blown fuses and tripping breakers because they did not have their unit plugged into a dedicated circuit. Call Kolb Electric to have your window air conditioner installed right!
Flat screen TVs – while it may seem slim and minimalist, that 42-inch plasma on the wall needs a lot of energy. At Kolb Electric, we can put your TV on a dedicated circuit to help protect the rest of your home’s electrical system and help your TV maintain its picture and sound quality.
