Warmer temperatures mean time to start planning outdoor projects. Thinking about adding an outdoor kitchen to your home? Here’s what you need to know about electrical requirements. Learn more about outdoor kitchen installation from Tim Kyle Electric, Heating & Cooling, electrician in Myersville.
Designing an Outdoor Kitchen
First, check with your local city government to determine what permits are needed. Permits apply to the construction, plumbing, and electrical work. In addition, an electrical safety inspection ensures that the kitchen is built according to safety codes.
Next, determine all of your specific electrical needs. Which appliances will require electric? How many new outlets you’ll need? What type of lighting or ceiling fan will you need? Knowing this information before hiring an electrician allows you to accurately gauge the scope of the project and the cost.
Also, consult with a local electrician to determine the path that your electric will take from your circuit breaker to your outdoor kitchen. In some cases, you may have to alter the site to easily provide your outdoor space with electricity. An electrician will give you suggestions, advice, and the best options. Finally, discuss having a dedicated GFCI circuit breaker. When it detects an imbalance of electricity, it will shut down to prevent fire or electric shock.
