Are you wondering if you need a dedicated circuit in your home? These are electrical circuits that serve only one appliance or electrical fixture, or a specific set of them. This means that the circuit is not shared with most of the other devices or outlets in your home. Dedicated circuits are normally required by the National Electrical Code (NEC) for certain high-powered appliances, such as electric ovens, dryers, and HVAC units.
Dedicated circuits are an important part of any residential electrical system. By ensuring that high-powered appliances have their own individual circuits, you can improve the overall safety, convenience, and efficiency of your home. If you’re unsure of whether you need a new dedicated circuit or if you need a repair on an existing one, AMS Electric is here for you.

There are many benefits to having one or more dedicated circuits in your home. First of all, and perhaps most importantly, they safely reduce the risk of overloading your electrical system and causing a fire. Relatedly, it also means that you won’t have to worry about tripping breakers or losing power when using multiple devices at once. Dedicated circuits can also improve the efficiency of your appliances by providing them with consistent power without interference from other devices.
Appliances that may require dedicated circuits include:
- Electric ovens/ranges
- Garbage disposals
- Washing machines
- Air conditioners
- Heat pumps
- EV chargers
It’s important to note that not all these appliances will require their own dedicated circuit. It depends on their power requirements and the specific wiring setup of your home. One of our licensed electricians can inspect your home and determine which appliances or rooms need dedicated circuits.
Installing a dedicated circuit involves running new wiring from your electrical panel to the location that needs it. The wiring is then connected to its own individual breaker in the panel. This ensures that if there’s ever an issue with an appliance or fixture, only that specific breaker will trip.
It’s extremely important to have an electrician perform this kind of work for you. Electric work can be dangerous, and a licensed technician can ensure that everything is up to code and safe for long-term use.
