Why Are Parallel Circuits Used in Homes?

Answer

Parallel circuits are used at home because the voltage always remains constant, thus reducing the chances of electrical accidents occurring. In addition to this, only the amount of current required by a device is supplied to a device.

1 Additional Answer
Parallel circuits are used in homes for more than one reason. First, a parallel circuit configuration limits the amount of power in each circuit and if one circuit breaker goes out, power remains on in the rest of the home.
