Kitchen Appliance Wiring Complexity
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.
