Typical circuit plan:
well-planned electrical system will have branch circuits that serve
easily defined areas or purposes. Unfortunately, many
homes--especially if they have been remodeled by
do-it-yourselfers--have circuits that roam all over the house. Note
that some appliances, such as the microwave oven, dishwasher, and
disposal, have their own circuits. The electric stove has its own
240-volt circuit. Otherwise, circuits are roughly organized by the
rooms they serve and their anticipated demand.
find out if a circuit is overloaded, add up the total power drawn by
the circuit as outlined below. Check the breaker or fuse to see how
many amps the circuit can deliver. If your total use exceeds the
amperage the circuit can supply, change your usage. The solution may
be as simple as plugging an appliance into a different receptacle --
or you may have to add another circuit to your electrical system.
