Overload Appliances Rating Calculator

3 Simple Steps to See if You Are Overloading

1. Work out what appliances you have plugged in to that circuit and insert quantity
2. Scroll down and check all of your appliances
3. At the bottom it will tell you the total wattage of the appliances you are using at one time. If this total is higher than the rating of your circuit, you are overloading and you need an electrician to fix it.

ONLY DO 1 CIRCUIT AT A TIME TO SEE IF YOU ARE OVERLOADING IT

If the TOTALS per circuit above are higher than the rating of your circuit. Then you are overloading your circuit and you need an electrician to fix.

  • 10 A circuit = 2400 watts – usually lights
  • 16 A circuit = 3840 watts – usually lights or power
  • 20 A circuit = 4800 watts – usually power
  • 25 A circuit = 6000 watts
  • 32 A circuit = 7680 watts
