Subject: Wiring a wall mounted hair dryer
Question: I have a 1600 watt wall mount hair dryer. Can I use it on a 15 amp circuit or should I put it on a 20 amp circuit? Thank you for your help!

Answer: Hi RobLets do the math.120 Volts x 15 Amps = 1800 Watts1800 watts @ 80% = 1,440 watts max load.15 amps in no good you need to move up to 20 amps.
