What do you need to know about sauna or hot tub installations or repairs?
Installing a sauna can be relatively simple: the main factor is space. You will want to make sure you have adequate room in the location where you want the sauna installed; a good minimum is around 1.2 square meters. You will also need an electricity connection. It is good to discuss your requirements with an architect or interior designer.
Most saunas are made to bespoke measurements. If you want a sauna installed outside, then you may need to acquire planning permission for the structure housing it. If you are just buying a sauna unit you can get a good one for around £9000. Depending on size, location on a property and so on, having a sauna installed can cost between £12,000 and £25,000.
Installing a hot tub is more complex. You will definitely need to the help of a specialist and an assessment to make sure you can place it in your chosen location. A hot tub needs three separate water connections as well as electricity. There are also different options for insulation, in addition to size and extra features like whirlpools. It is important that you avoid scrimping on the cost of installing a hot tub, as repairs can be extremely expensive. Your best bet is to buy a strong and reliant brand with a good warranty. A tradesman experienced with installing hot tubs will most probably have a brand they trust and can recommend to you based on your budgetary requirements. If you want a hot tub installed outside you will also have to consider whether you want it sunk into the ground or elevated.
The cost of installing a hot tub can vary widely, based on where it is installed in the house, its brand, features and so on. Collect multiple quotes, and remember to have your situation surveyed. Take your time and make sure everything is done right.
When it comes to saunas and hot tubs it is likely that a lot of tradesmen and companies you find will be ‘specialists’. Regardless, it is important to look over the qualifications and experience of each of your options before making a final decision. You should look over reviews from their previous clientele, and make sure they are fully covered against accidental damage and liabilities.
It can be difficult to give an average cost for sauna and hot tub repairs. It will depend on the nature of the fault, with the cost covering labour and the price of any additional parts. It is good to get several quotes for a competitive price, but of course it is better if you managed to get a good guarantee during the installation.
