Hot Tub Installation 101 by Burbank Electrician

Were you the lucky recipient of a fabulous hot tub this holiday season? If so, you are probably eager to have it set up as soon as possible. It may be the middle of winter, but the California weather makes it the perfect time of year to enjoy the hot water while enjoying the brisk night air after a long day. It is a relaxing experience and you are likely eager to get to it. You will need to call a Burbank electrician to schedule your install appointment. The friendly team at The Electric Connection is on hand and ready to take your call.

It is imperative you do not try and install the hot tub by yourself. There are some technical things that must be done in order to install the hot tub properly. The first order of business is to have an electrician come out and check your electric panel to determine if you have the space needed to install an additional 240-volt outlet. That is what your hot tub will need to operate. If you don’t have the available space in your current electric panel for the additional breaker, you will need an electric panel upgrade. When the electrician does the initial inspection, he or she will let you know what you will need.

The hot tub will need to be hard-wired to your home’s main electric by an electrician. Burbank residents will also need to check with their county to determine what permits are needed for a hot tub installation. Depending on where you plan on placing the hot tub, the wiring from the hot tub to the home will need to buried. Keep this in mind as you decide where you want your hot tub. If you are ready to get your new hot tub up and running, give The Electric Connection a call today.
