A: It's important that you contact a licensed electrician or contractor when planning for the electrical set-up of your hot tub. You should consult the owner's manual for your specific model and provide the information to your electrician. Proper planning will ensure a safe installation that meets local code and is free of financial surprises.
The cost for your electrical set-up depends completely on your individual site situation and the length of the electrical "run". If you do not have a designated circuit available in your current panel, one will need to be installed. Electricians charge to run wiring based on the distance it will need to be run and the size and wiring material required.
