# How many amps does a range hood need?

Vent hood electrical requirements: Requires a 120 volt individual, properly grounded branch circuit with a 3 prong grounding type receptacle, protected by a 15 or 20 amp circuit breaker or time-delay fuse.

2 amps

Beside above, how many CFM do you need for a range hood? A range hood fan should move a minimum of 100 CFM of air for every 12 inches of stove width. This means that if you have a stove that is 30 inches wide then you need a range hood with a fan that rotates at least 250 CFM of air.

Correspondingly, does a range hood require a dedicated circuit?

The 2005 NEC requires a dedicated circuit for a range hood. This is to allow for a future microwave hood to be installed without straining a shared circuit.

Is 250 cfm enough for range hood?

If the range hood is attached to a wall, you should have 100 cubic feet per minute(cfm) per linear foot. So if you have a 30″ wide range, you should have a hood rated at 250 cfm ((30/12)*100 =250). If the hood is over an island, you’ll use 150 cfm/linear foot.

### Can a range hood be plugged in?

Range hoods shall be permitted to be cord-and-plug-connected with a flexible cord identified as suitable for use on range hoods in the installation instructions of the appliance manufacturer, where all of the following conditions are met: (1) The flexible cord is terminated with a grounding-type attachment plug.

### Can microwave and gas range be on same circuit?

Not much about a gas range or oven uses electricity, so whatever circuit it’s on it’s unlikely to make any impact. A typical kitchen will have dedicated circuits for microwave, dishwasher, and disposal. All other items would be a part of the two small appliance circuits required by the UBC.

5 amps

### How many amps does a dishwasher use?

Dishwasher Amperage Built-in and portable dishwashers have an operating load of 13.5 amps. This means that the amperage of the circuit breaker must be higher than the amps required by the unit.

### How many appliances can be on a 20 amp circuit?

One rule of thumb is to assign a maximum draw of 1.5 amps to each receptacle, which allows for 10 receptacles on a 20-amp circuit.

### How many receptacles can be on a 15 amp circuit?

for a 15 amp circuit this allowed for 10 outlets and on a 20 amp circuit 13 outlets were allowed.

### What appliances need dedicated circuits?

Dedicated circuits are required by the National Electrical Code for major electrical appliances such as refrigerators, stoves, washers, dryers, space heaters, and more. Appliances that need a dedicated circuit include: Electric ranges. Wall ovens. Refrigerators. Microwaves. Freezers. Dishwashers. Garbage disposals. Toasters.

### How many outlets can you have on one circuit?

Always the big question, how many lights on one breaker By rule of thumb you would stick with 8 to 10 outlets and or lights per breaker. Now this is of course they are 120 volts 60 Hz (USA or Canada).

### Does a refrigerator need its own circuit?

In the US, under the NEC, a residential kitchen fridge is not required to be on a dedicated circuit. A fridge can be on one of the minimum two required “small appliance branch circuits”.

1,800 watts

### Do I need 20 amp outlets in kitchen?

Requirement: Provide at least two 20-amp, 120-volt circuits to supply power to GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) receptacles for countertop and eating areas. Why: The 20 amps are required (vs. 15 amp) for the higher power requirements found in kitchens. Think toaster ovens, blenders, and mixers.
