Are you thinking of installing an outdoor pool or hot tub in your Maryland home? Pools and hot tubs have been experiencing a surge in popularity during the pandemic. However, they can be dangerous to install. There are many reasons why you need professionals for hot tub wiring. Here are a few to consider.
Call the Professionals for Hot Tub Wiring
Electrical professionals have years of experience. For example, they know not to install a hot tub under power lines as it is dangerous to have one in that location. Professionals know the ins and outs of safety and codes so your job is safely handled.
Hot tubs need a dedicated 240V GFCI circuit to safely provide power. Therefore, an electrician will need to make sure your home is running on at least 100 amp service. Most homes built in the last 30-40 years meet this requirement. In addition, many modern homes even exceed this with 150-200 amp service. However, if you live in a historic home, you may need to upgrade your electrical service before any hot tub wiring is completed.
Hiring someone who isn’t qualified is risky. With a professional, there are guarantees backing them up. Because hot tubs also involve water, wiring installation can be very dangerous.
