Dedicated Circuit Installation For Greater Lynchburg

Electrical Upgrades for Your Home

Lynchburg ElectricianWhether you’re installing a new electric range, an electric car charging station, or other major electrical appliance, a dedicated circuit will ensure that you have safe, reliable power.

Unlike a typical home electrical circuit in your service panel which can power multiple outlets and lighting fixtures, a dedicated circuit is designed for situations where the current load would otherwise overwhelm a standard circuit. Appliances that rely on 220v outlets are almost always connected to a dedicated circuit.

While large appliances such as washers and dryers, and heating and cooling systems are the most common situations where dedicated circuits are installed, the dedicated circuits are also used to protect computers and electronics.

Dedicated Computer Circuits

Minor fluctuations in electrical power within the home can harm entertainment systems, monitors, printers, hard drives and computers. This can damage sensitive electronics and result in data loss. Dedicated circuits help protect expensive computers and electronics by isolating the electrical current from power fluctuations that can occur on other circuits.
