1 WIRING REQUIREMENTS FOR HOUSEHOLD CIRCUITS Each appliance listed in Table C2.4 needs an individual circuit. Protect each appliance with a delay-type fuse or breaker of the size stated by the manufacturer. In the absence of manufacturer recommendation use the size stated in Table C2.4. The delay-type fuses and breakers withstand momentary starting loads and yet protect against overloads and short circuits. Ampere rating of delay-type breakers or fuses for appliances should not be more than 25-percent greater than the appliance rating. For example, if a permanently installed waste-disposer motor is rated at 8 amperes, the delay-type breaker or fuse should not be over 10 amperes; 8 plus 1/4 of 8. Many high-speed electric clothes dryers require range-type outlets. All appliances on 120 volts are to have three-wire grounding-type outlets. Those on 240 volts have a separate ground wire. Estimated Electrical Power Requirements The following are estimated electrical power requirements for various equipment. For specific design applications be sure to consult the literature from the manufacturer for the specific equipment. This is especially important when installing large equipment. The average kilowatt-hours per month shown in the tables may be used in estimating the costs of operation for the equipment shown. The kilowatt-hours per month when multiplied by the electric cost per kilowatt-hour will give the monthly cost of operating the equipment.
