How many outlets can I safely put on one circuit?
Updated: Apr 8
The number of outlets that can be safely put on one circuit depends on various factors such as the amperage rating of the circuit, the power demand of the devices that will be plugged into the outlets, and the wiring of the circuit.
In general, it is recommended to have no more than 8-10 outlets on a 15-amp circuit and no more than 10-12 outlets on a 20-amp circuit. However, this number may vary depending on the specific circumstances of the installation.
It's important to note that overloading a circuit can lead to overheating and potentially cause electrical fires. Therefore, it is always a good idea to consult with a licensed electrician to determine the appropriate number of outlets for your specific situation.
