What Is a Dedicated Circuit?
Do you just plug your appliances into the nearest outlet without worrying about the toll it takes on your circuit breaker? Most of us probably do. However, this can be risky. Instead, you may benefit from a dedicated circuit for your computer and other appliances – including your refrigerator, washer, dryer, stove, microwave, computer, and others. Installing dedicated circuits ensures your appliances and devices can operate without overloading your electrical system.
Why You Need Dedicated Circuits in Your Home
There are many benefits to installing dedicated circuits in your Pompano Beach home. Some of the top ones include avoiding overloaded units and keeping your computer and appliances running more efficiently.
Without a dedicated circuit, appliances can use more electricity than the circuit can handle, causing breakers to trip, fuses to blow and wiring to overheat. This can pose a risk of electrical fires.
Installing a dedicated circuit for your computer can also help it perform better. It gives it the energy it needs to make you more efficient when working.

What Appliances, Devices Need Dedicated Circuits

- Electric ranges
- Garbage disposals
- Space heaters
- Heating and air conditioning units
- Water heaters
- Garage door openers
