Cost for a 20 Amp dedicated circuit?


Just curious what an electrician would I should expect to pay to put in a 20A dedicated line for a OTR microwave?

I know this can vary upon multiple variables. There is access to the firestop in the ceiling to the laundry room under the kitchen, towards the front of the house. The house is truss construction. And the breaker box is on the same side of the house, but on the back wall.

Any thoughts?

Cost for a 20 Amp dedicated circuit?


Since this is a DIY site, free, if you do it yourself.

I recently added a 20 amp circuit in my office for my AC, about 20 feet from the panel, and it took me a couple hours and cost maybe 50 bucks in materials (probably exagerating actually) considering the plug, wiring box and staples. Also needed a clamp for the panel but found one in the garage.

This is a very rough estimate but I would imagine it would cost maybe 200 bucks to get it done by a pro. Of course this depends how far, whether or not lot of fishing is required etc. I could be way off.

If I am envisioning what you are saying correctly, I would charge $212. That is averaging the price of the breaker at $4 before markup and 40 feet of romex.
