**While there is no specific limit to the number of electrical outlets that can be installed on a single 15 amp breaker, the total load cannot exceed 1,800 watts.** This number is calculated by multiplying the standard voltage (120) by the number of amps on the circuit (15).

To determine how many appliances can safely be used on a particular circuit, calculate the individual requirements of each unit. For instance, some standard coffee pots require 800 watts of power while a bathroom blow dryer can use between 300 and 1,200. Refrigerators and microwaves generally draw about 700 watts each. Dedicated circuits should be used for appliances exceeding 1,800 watts.
