The main factor that plays a role in determining a dedicated circuit install price is the main panel-to-appliance proximity (or distance). Simply put, the further the distance, the more labor and material required to install the circuit. There is no "one-size fits all". Each dedicated circuit install will differ from location to location so pricing will be custom to the specific to the property layout.
Most of the time, the power source for the appliance must originate from the main electrical panel. When running a new dedicated circuit, wiring must be "fished" or pulled behind walls all the way to the desired appliance location.
As such, the amount of time, effort, and material costs needed for this install varies depending on the following.
Additional Price Factor: Non-Standard Circuit or Obstructions
There may be certain circumstances where the wiring proximity (or distance) from the main panel is considered non-standard. Examples of non-standard circumstances can be described as:
A dedicated circuit can help protect your appliance, your home, and your family. If you are to have multiple major appliances all on single circuit, the likelihood of overloading is very high. When you overload the circuit it will "trip" the circuit breaker, which then stops the flow of electricity to the appliance.
A breaker can wear out and fail to trip after excess tripping. If the breaker fails to trip, the electrical outlet can overheat leading to damage of your appliance or worse start an electrical fire. If you have a breaker constantly tripping, do not ignore this warning sign, and call an experienced electrician.
If an appliance has a motor and is essential to your safety, comfort or lifestyle, it is worth discussing putting on a dedicated circuit. A major appliance is going to use a lot of energy and will require a dedicated circuit. Again, without a dedicated circuit, the appliance can use more current then the circuit can handle. Resulting in tripping breakers, a damaged appliance, and worse case cause an electrical fire.
Any experienced licensed electrician will be able to determine ANY appliance's requirements for proper installation based off the appliance label or a PDF of the product specifications supplied by the manufacturer.
