Dedicated Circuits

Required to be Dedicated

Anytime you have something, whether plugged-in or hard-wired, that has a dedicated space and will take more than 50% of the circuit capacity, you need a dedicated circuit for it. Here are a few common items:

  • Freezer. Give this a 20 amp dedicated circuit.
  • Central Vac. System. Usually a 20 amp circuit.
  • Microwave. Usually a 20 amp circuit.
  • Disposal. Usually a 15 amp circuit.
  • Dishwasher. Usually a 15 amp circuit.
  • Iron. Usually a 20 amp circuit.
  • Security. Usually not large enough to require a dedicated circuit, but a good idea.
