What is a Dedicated Circuit?
A dedicated circuit is simply a circuit that has only one specific purpose, with its own circuit break within your electrical panel. These types of circuits are typically used with only one single appliance. Because no other appliance will use the energy from the circuit, it’s referred to as “dedicated”.
Dedicated appliance circuits are used to ensure that major appliances which use a significant amount of electricity are able to get the energy they need without overloading your electrical system, blowing a fuse, or tripping a breaker. Appliances between medium and heavy duty may need their own dedicated circuit:
- 20 Amp: for midrange appliances like hair dryers and toasters.
- 20-50 amp: for heavy duty appliances like washers and dryers. These circuits usually have measures in place to prevent them drawing too much power and possibly starting a fire.
Appliances That Need A Dedicated Circuit Include:
- Wall ovens
- Garbage disposals
- Washers and Dryers
- Heating and AC Units
- Garage door openers
- Sump pumps
- Water pumps
- Blow dryers
- Central vacuums
- Water heaters
