Don’t Short Circuit Your Home After a New Appliance Purchase—Appliance Wiring and Dedicated Circuit Installation by John Goudie Electric

That new refrigerator really ties your kitchen together, but do you have the proper appliance wiring to keep it from blowing the circuit? If you’ve ever blown a fuse after plugging in too many appliances on the same circuit, you understand how important it is to get dedicated circuitry for each one.

Are you thinking of buying a new appliance but aren’t sure about the circuitry in your home? John Goudie Electric will come anywhere in the Southern Maryland and Northern Virginia region to inspect your home and give you the peace of mind you need.

Dangers of Plugging an Appliance into an Overloaded Circuit

These days, most homes in the Southern Maryland and Northern Virginia areas have been built ready to accommodate large appliances. 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 the 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:

  • Refrigerators
  • Freezers
  • Electric range
  • Electric water heaters
  • Furnaces
  • Washers
  • Dryers
  • Microwaves
  • Dishwashers
  • 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 301-609-9450!
