20 Amp Circuits

Used mainly in kitchen, nook, dining, and bathrooms, 20 amp circuits are rated for a maximum of 2400 watts. Most vacuum cleaners use 12 to 18 amps, or 1440 to 2160 watts, depending on the style of the vacuum cleaner. This will cause lights to dim. When using the power head attachment, any binding up will trip most breakers. If you did not purchase a dedicated circuit for your vacuum cleaner, we recommend you use the bathroom, dining room, nook, or kitchen outlets.
