A customer wanted to install a hot tub but faced a challenge—their home lacked the electrical capacity to support such an addition. If they exceeded their electricity capacity, the entire house’s main breaker would trip, causing an outage.
Rather than opting for an expensive upgrade of their entire electrical system, we proposed a cost-effective solution. We installed a device from Alberta that connects to the main wires. This device allows the hot tub to turn on only when the household electricity usage is below 80%. It prevents overloading and ensures a seamless experience for the customer.
Our team skillfully wired the device into the hot tub system and integrated it with the main house wires. This careful installation ensures that everything functions seamlessly.
As part of our commitment to safety and compliance, we obtained the necessary permits for the work. The City of Calgary conducted a thorough inspection, and our installation passed all regulatory requirements.
Our solution saved the customer from a substantial expense, offering a practical and efficient alternative to a complete system upgrade.
The customer was impressed not only with the cost-effectiveness but also the technical ingenuity of our solution. They appreciated the “geekiness” of the device and found it to be an amazing and reliable fix for their needs.
Several years later, the system continues to work flawlessly, providing the customer with a reliable and cost-efficient way to enjoy their hot tub without the need for a major electrical upgrade.
