Sauna Electrical Requirements
Rocky Mountain Saunas Electrical Requirements
Information For All Sauna Models
** The outlet in which the sauna is plugged into must be a Dedicated Circuit while in use. A Dedicated Circuit is intended for use with a single appliance and generally has its own circuit breaker in the sauna location’s electrical box.
** Any electrical changes or required upgrades must be made by a qualified, licensed electrician. Failure to comply may result in safety issues and voiding of the sauna warranty.
** The power cord for the sauna is located in the middle of the roof cap and measures nine (9) feet in length. It is recommended that the location of the outlet is accessible without moving the sauna.
** The use of an extension cord is not recommended as the sauna may not operate as designed.
Badger, Colorado and Aspen Models
Normally, no electrical modification is required to be able to use these models in a home. Standard household outlets are either 110V/15 Amp with 14/2 gauge wire, or 110V/20 Amp with 12/2 gauge wire with a ground. Either circuit will accommodate these models. The required outlet is a NEMA 5-15R.
Durango and Rio Grande Models
An upgrade to the circuitry is required for these two models. For proper operation a 110V/20 Amp circuit with 12/3 gauge wire is necessary. The required outlet is a NEMA 5-20R.
Big Bear, Vail and Montana Models
An upgrade to the circuitry is required for these three models. For proper operation, a 220V/20 Amp circuit with 12/3 gauge wire is necessary. The required outlet is a NEMA 6-20R.
