    Ampt Over Electric – Hot Tub Installation Process

    Hot tub electrical installation is a particularly meticulous task that requires a great deal of preparation and practice. Water can serve as a dangerous conduit for electricity and if your hot tub isn’t properly installed this can result in electrocution and fire leading to serious injury.

    At Ampt Over Electric our team of highly skilled and licensed electricians scope out the area where you’d like to install your hot tub, and identify the best and safest location. Your safety is our number one priority!

    Electrical Permits

    With every new hot tub installation an electrical permit is required by the city of Calgary. We send our licensed electricians to your property before the hot tub is delivered to prepare for every stage of the installation and this includes pulling permits for your property.

    Once all electrical components are all put into the place you can immediately start enjoying your new hot tub. We will always ensure that you’re aware of both the cost of installation and the risks involved so that you have all the information you need.

    Delivering Your Hot Tub

    At Ampt Over Electric we can install your hot tub no matter the size, type, brand, or model. Our schedules can also be made flexible to fit with yours – including evenings and weekends. We also pride ourselves on providing hot tub delivery services that are fast, efficient, and timely.

    We will bring your hot tub right to your home, place it, hook up the electrical components and can have your new home spa ready over the course of one working day.

    We usually deliver our hot tubs on a flat-bed trailer up to 5 metres long, 2.4 metres wide and 3.5 metres high. Your property must be able to be accessed by such a vehicle. A minimum of 1100 millimetres of width is required when offloading the hot tub to your site – a minimum clear vertical height of 9 feet will be required as well. Your hot tub will arrive as a complete unit and it cannot be disassembled.

    It will then be placed on a trolley on either side or on its base. There may be extra planks that are required for negotiating slopes or other rough terrain – which will be discussed in advance of your hot tub delivery.

    Installing Your Hot Tub

    For installation, the hot tub needs to be on a flat surface that maintains complete contact with the floor. Home spa’s can weigh anywhere between 900 kg and 1400 kg when full, and require a solid support. A 10-15 cm-thick concrete slab is ideal for these purposes.

    It’s absolutely essential to have your hot tub installed on a ground level flat surface to allow for ease of access. Your power supply must also be a dedicated RCD protected circuit – this electrical component will be provided to you by Ampt Over Electric.

    Hot Tub installation is a relatively simple process however speed is never prioritized over safety. Our team will work diligently to ensure a successful and safe installation of your hot tub so that you can relax at your leisure and comfort.

    Frequently Asked Questions About Hot Tub Electrical Installation in Calgary

    Hot tubs require either 110V or 220V of electricity in order to run. By choosing a 110V model commonly referred to as a “plug and play” you may simply be able to plug your spa into an outdoor electrical outlet. However, if you choose a 220V model then you will have to work with a certified Calgary electrical contractor to ensure you have enough electricity to operate the spa. Depending on the electrical requirements for your hot tub model and the current wiring system in your home, an electrical panel upgrade service may be required.

    Yes, hot tubs may require special wiring dependant on the type of electrical configuration. Full-sized spas or hot tubs must adhere to the Canadian Electrical Code (CEC). This includes hard-wiring your hot tub into a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI)-protected 220 to 240V, and a 50- or 60-amp dedicated circuit. Your electrical contractor will be paramount in helping you determine the ideal setup for your home spa.

    An electrical supply needed for your spa must include a 50-60 AMP switch or circuit breaker. The disconnect, typically housed in a small metal box must be readily accessible but installed at a minimum of five feet away from the hot tub.

    If your hot tub is connected to a non-dedicated circuit, you will run into overloading and incur nuisance tripping. This requires resetting of the breaker at the house electrical panel.

    The increase to your electrical bill when adding a hot tub can be calculated by determining the voltage of your hot tub’s water heater. a 240-volt water heater uses approximately 6,000 watts while a 120-volt heater uses 1,500.

    As an example: Say your hot tub has a 240-volt heater and a wattage of 7,500. You may use your spa for around 25 hours per month, this calculation would be 25 X 7.5 = 187.5. Now multiply that by the kilowatt-hour cost of 10 and you can anticipate your monthly bill to increase by $18.75.

    Overall unless you are using your hot tub excessively, the expense incurred on your electrical bill will remain small.

    There is no specific calculation or rule as to how much your home’s value can increase by the addition of a hot tub. A home with a hot tub may sell faster on the real estate market than those without because it is seen as a coveted luxury item. Buyers may find a hot tub to be a great selling point but it does not technically increase the home’s overall value.

    There is a wide range of health benefits that come from the use of a hot tub. The soothing hot water and massaging jets can aid in stress relief, muscle relaxation, pain relief, improved sleep and can even help to burn extra calories. One small study suggests soaking in a jet hot tub can be equivalent to going on a 30-minute walk. Whatever reason you are seeking to purchase a hot tub, the benefits of increased relaxation are undisputed.

    These names are often used interchangeably to describe similar objects. The differentiation between a hot tub, jacuzzi, and home spa can mainly come down to how the systems are branded. The Jacuzzi brand is owned by the Apollo Management Group which also owns sundance spas, hydro pool, dimension one spas, and thermal spas. Hot tubs can go by a variety of brand names but ultimately serve the same purpose in acting as a type of hot tub. The clearest way to understand the difference between a spa, jacuzzi, or hot tub is to consider the differences between coca-cola and Pepsi, or ford and Ferrari. Both are similar in nature but have different identifiers which make them unique.

    Yes, it is common to place a hot tub on a deck, and it’s even recommended given the freezing conditions of Calgarian winters. Having your hot tub situated on your deck makes for easy access and fewer steps to get to the comfort of your spa on a cold winter day. It may also allow for some protection against heavy snowfall in the event your deck has an awning. The only thing to be considered is whether or not you have adequate space for the type of home spa you would like to install. Also, consider whether you would like to install a “plug and play” 110V model or a 220V model which requires a permit and installation by a professional electrician.

    Given that you have permission from your landlord or that you own your urban home or townhouse then installing a hot tub may be an ideal proposition! As long as your home has a backyard then ventilation and drainage wouldn’t be an issue. Make sure you have access for steam to release and are able to drain the tub into the earth or into a pre-installed drain.

    This depends on the prospective buyer. While some may see a previously installed hot tub on the property as an asset, others may find it to be a burden. The prospect of frequent maintenance may be off-putting for some and not for others. Beyond this, it’s important to keep in mind that most people do not include this feature in their ‘must haves’ when it comes to their real estate search. While a hot tub can (to the right person) be a wonderful luxury, many people may come to the conclusion that if they really want a hot tub they’ll aim to purchase one down the line when they are ready.

    My dad just sold his house and we were told that the panels should be upgraded by the inspector.. said that they were very old and out dated, a possible fire hazard. I am happy we picked Ampt Over Electric as our electrician because his pricing was not overly high and the work was done quickly and efficiently. Highly recommend.

We called Jorden at Ampt Over Electric and were able to get seen right away. His pricing is fair and his quality of work is outstanding.

    I asked for a local electrician who is an expert at upgrading electrical panels on local community Facebook page, and was referred to Ampt Over Electric. We spoke with Jorden and worked out the pricing and were very happy with how much it was going to cost, so we went ahead with the upgrading. Jorden's work is transparent, and there were no hidden fees! We really appreciated his hard work, and all the time he put into making sure that everything was up to code.

    Jordan and Ryan did the electrics for a Sauna installation. The service and quality of the work was excellent and they knew exactly everything I wanted regards detail and keeping the wiring tidy. It was extremely cold outside at -19 but that made no difference they cracked on and got the job done and had a great attitude. Very professional in their work and I would definitely recommend for any electrical work. Reliable, punctual, reasonably priced and very professional.

    I hired Jorden to wire in a new hot tub. Jorden was running a little late but called and asked if I was ok...that was a nice touch. When he arrived he assessed the job and properly got to work. I found Jorden to be very communicative and personable. He understood what needed to be done and did it very efficiently. When it came time to turn on the hot tub he noticed that one of the fuses on the tubs board was not functioning. He the ran all over town looking for the right fuse and replaced it. Then the hit tub wouldn't turn on. After he called the hot tub company and tried to figure out what wrong, he eventually had to leave with the hot tub not working. Turns out the hot tubs motherboard was defective and had to be replaced. I found Jorden to be extremely careful and effecient and would definitely recommend him for any electrical needs.
