  • Separate Circuit for Garage Door Opener?

    I am in Ontario Canada so the rules may be different. Do I need a separate circuit on my panel for garage door opener or can I share the circuit with say my air cleaner?

    In the states you can share, but I'm not sure about up north. I don't think most codes different.

        If you can, put the door opener on a Private circuit. If you go on a trip shut off power to the opener and also be sure the door really is locked. Outdoor security lighting is a must have anymore. Lamps on timers indoors is also a must have. Now if you are really not able to put the garage door opener on a private circuit without lots of $$$ and work being involved then connect it to an existing circuit but please not the one for indoor lighting in the garage. I know people do it all the time as many garages only have one circuit. The issue is to do what you can so if a breaker does trip it won't cause a blackout out in your garage and/or with outdoor security lighting too.
