Dedicated circuits

Dedicated CircuitsDedicated circuits in most cases will prevent your circuit breaker from tripping due to overloading the circuit.

Some areas that we have found are in need of dedicated circuits are the microwave oven and bathrooms.

Hairdryers are made with higher wattages than before, so when using them in your bathroom receptacles, they could trip the existing circuit breaker especially when more than one is being used at the same time.

Call Vuta Electrical and Lighting for a free estimate to install your dedicated circuits(s).
