A spa is a great addition to any Prescott home. Spending time in your spa is a great way to relax and unwind from a busy week. It is also a great way to spend time with friends. But before you can start relaxing, you need to get your spa properly wired first. Assurance Electrical Services has years of experience wiring spas and hot tubs and wants to make sure your new spa is installed safely.
The majority of hot tubs require 220V-240V 50-60 AMP GFCI protected circuits. There are exceptions such as a dual temperature swim spas which require up to 100 AMPs. Dealing with these high voltages and AMPs is extremely dangerous, and it is vital that you have the electrical wiring and installation completed by a licensed professional who will ensure it meets National Electric Code (NEC) and any mandatory local and state laws. Be sure to check your owner’s manual for specific electrical requirements before any work begins.
If your new spa only requires 110V-120V, installing is significantly easier. These types of spas will usually have a GFCI built into the end of the cord. This means you can plug directly into a regular outlet. However, it is essential that the outlet you are plugging into is a dedicated circuit. If the outlet does not have its own line, the breaker may be frequently tripped if another appliance is used on the same circuit. This is not only annoying, but it can also become a serious safety issue. Have your outlet checked by a licensed professional to ensure the proper connections are made before installing your spa.
Although a spa’s primary purpose is relaxation, safety should always come first to avoid any mishaps or catastrophes. Assurance Electrical Services understands what it takes to get the job done right. Our licensed and skilled electricians will make sure your spa is safely installed at your Prescott home.
