Dangers of Overloading a Circuit
These days, most homes in Virginia have been built ready to accommodate large appliances. But if you live in an older home, or have purchased new appliances that don’t already have a dedicated circuit, you need to install a new one.
Overloading your circuit won’t just be an inconvenience to you—it’s also dangerous. When an appliance tries to pull more electricity out of a circuit than it can handle, it can cause power failure, electric shocks, and even electrical fires. Installing dedicated circuits for your appliances reduces the chances of electrical fires in your Virginia home and helps prevent power failures.

Does My Appliance Need a Dedicated Circuit?
Chances are, if it has a motor, it needs its own circuit. This includes:
- Electric range
- Electric water heaters
- Garbage disposals
- Sump pumps
- Heat pumps
- Air conditioners
But there are other times you would need to install a dedicated circuit. Larger power tools, for example, might need dedicated circuits. If you like to go all-out during the holidays, you may want to call an electrician to install a dedicated circuit just for your decorations and lights.
Any machinery, computers, or larger televisions can also benefit from their own circuits. You can always purchase an electrical code book if you aren’t sure, or just call the experts at John Goudie Electric at (301) 945-7688!

John Goudie Electric’s Appliance Wiring Process
Appliance wiring requires installing dedicated circuitry for your new appliance. Dedicated circuits allow us to connect your appliance—which, depending on its size, likely draws a large electrical current to its circuit—to its own, personal electrical circuit. Doing this increases your Alexandria home’s safety and decreases the chance of electrical shock, fire, or damage to your appliances or electrical outlets.
Our electricians can inspect your home’s current electrical system to ensure the proper amperage is reaching your appliance. Next, we install a new circuit for your appliance and tighten all electrical connections. Once the dedicated circuit is installed, your new appliance can safely operate in your Alexandria home.
