AWG Electrical Wire Size


  • What does AWG stand for on electrical wire sizing?
  • Does Wolf or Sub-Zero specify a wire size for products?


AWG stands for American Wire Gauge, which is the national electric code standard.

  • See also, Romex Size and Amp Ratings Information.
  • The kW rating helps determine the appropriate wire gauge based on the national electrical code.
  • Wolf only provides electrical specifications for our appliances. Consult a local electrician or inspector for home electrical information.

Refer to the Wolf Design Guide or product installation guide for further information.
