Many homeowners look forward to getting a hot tub. Having a hot tub put in can mean a lot of relaxing times ahead for your entire family. But is it a DIY project? Can just anyone put one in, or should the professionals handle it? At In-House Electric, we recommend having it done by professionals. There is electricity involved, and you always want to be careful there, especially when mixed with water. In-House Electric provides hot tub electrician and electrical panel installation in Federal Way.
Before You Have Your Hot Tub Installed
When you have a hot tub installed, it will either operate on 110V or 220V electricity. The typical home has 110V wiring in place. If you need 220V, you want an electrician to take care of that. A few hot tubs run on 240V, which requires a 50-60 AMP GDCI breaker. Before you begin planning, give us a call, and we can come out and make sure you can have it adequately wired.
You May Need a New Electrical Panel
Whenever you plan a significant installation that is going to put a strain on your electric system, there is a chance you might need a new electrical panel. A hot tub is one of those things. When we come to your home, we check for:
- Check your home
- Check the amperage
- Check the breakers
All this lets us know your home is ready to handle the electric load of a new hot tub. If it looks like it will be a problem, we can install a new electrical panel. This is your best assurance for safety. For all your hot tub electrician and electrical panel installation in Federal Way, give us a call at (425) 399-8673.
