What Appliances Need Dedicated Wiring?
We know it can be a little hard to tell when your normal outlets will serve and when a new circuit needs to be installed. But there are some easy rules of thumb to follow! As a general rule it’s best to install anything that is “fixed in place”, such as a refrigerator or a furnace. However some handheld appliances can also need dedicated wiring. Typically if it draws a lot of power, it needs a dedicated outlet to avoid surges and other common issues!
At Kolb Electric we recommend the following always be on a dedicated outlet:
Heavy appliance outlets – Many handheld or portable tools need to be on a dedicated circuit to avoid complications. This is typically handled by installing “free” dedicated outlets in strategic places in your home. These can include bathrooms for hair dryers and other hygiene tools, living rooms for portable heaters, outbuildings for power tools, and more. Just remember these are dedicated, so don’t plug two things into the outlet at once!
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’s appliance wiring specialists 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 their 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 the 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.
