It can be incredibly frustrating when you bring home a new, pricey kitchen appliance only to find out that you don’t have the slightest idea of how to wire it. The salesperson may have told you that hooking up your appliance is easy, but now you’ve found out the hard way that you don’t have a clue. There’s no need to worry, though; the pros with Randy’s Electric can take care of your new wiring for kitchen appliances, and take care of it efficiently and quickly.
When a do-it-yourselfer makes even a small mistake when wiring a household appliance, that can result in the malfunctioning of that appliance and also pose a safety hazard. At Randy’s Electric, we take all necessary precautions during installation to make sure your set-up is effective and safe.
For instance, if you try this type of project on your own, you may not be able to decipher the instructions or be able to read the electrical distribution panels that indicate which circuit is connected to which breaker. You may be the victim of a poorly documented, vague or non-descriptive diagram that can actually put you in danger.
Never take the installation of a kitchen appliance lightly. Call a skilled technician with Randy’s Electric and we can take care of your potentially dangerous kitchen appliance installation.
There are all sorts of electrical devices and appliances in today’s kitchens. There are lights in, on and under cabinets, counter receptacles that can run multiple appliances at one time, and several separate circuits needed for appliances such as your microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator and more.
While some appliances can run on a 120-volt circuit, others, such as an oven, cooktop or electric range, have to be wired to a dedicated 240-volt circuit. You may have an under-sink receptacle for your garbage disposal so that one plug is always “hot” (allowing you to plug in the disposal as well as a hot-water dispenser) and one is switched. Your disposal may be hardwired into a switched box.
Also, your new dishwasher may have its own circuit, or it could be on the same circuit as the garbage disposal.
With all of this complexity, you’re much better off letting a trained and experienced technician handle whatever kitchen appliance wiring needs you have. We can install your new appliances, as well as any new track, recessed, accent or cove lighting.
Give us a call for any of your kitchen appliance wiring needs and we will take care of them as quickly as possible.
