Strategize Your Electric with Safety
Imagine if you were to place the engine of a semi-trailer truck into a small sedan. With such a radical change, the power of the new engine would completely overload the car, putting your passengers at risk.
Now, take this idea, and apply it to your electrical system. There are certain appliances in your home that require significant power. Because of their high electrical demands, it becomes crucial to install dedicated circuits that will function solely for these appliances. This way, your electrical system will not overload and cause a tripped breaker or, even worse, an electrical fire.
When you welcome a new appliance into your home, it’s typically a home comfort upgrade that you’re excited about. That being said, it’s important to remember that in order for your new appliance to operate safely and efficiently, all that power has to come from somewhere.
That’s where dedicated circuits come into play. And at Integra Electrical, we are the team that can install this electrical upgrade in the safest, most effective way possible.
When, Specifically, Do I Need a Dedicated Circuit?
Some of the most common appliances that require dedicated circuits include:
- Electric ranges
- Space heaters
- Heating and AC units
- Water heaters
- Blow dryers
When it comes to recognizing the need for dedicated circuits, it’s important to rely on more than just intuition. If it looks like it’s using a lot of power, then chances are that it is. But sadly, many electrical fires happen because homeowners underestimated the strain that their electric was constantly under.
At Integra Electrical, our fully licensed electricians have spent years upgrading homes with necessary dedicated circuits. Whether the issue arises from your own observations or after an electrical inspection, our team can quickly determine if and where dedicated circuits are needed in your home.
