I think I may have found my answer: 422.11(3), 422.30, and 422.31(A)
I did look at 680 and a sauna really doesn't, at least to me, fit the definitions listed in the scope of the article 680.1 - Maybe I am wrong, but to me, a sauna is simply an appliance; or at least as best as I can tell from the definitions listed.You might want a peek @ 680 Paul....
Hi Paul, in my experience, it is best to buy a heater that already has all the components ready and that includes the installation guide, this saves a lot of time and effort. I have bought two heaters on saunas.com and it has been a very good experience, you could try it.I am looking for requirements for a sauna (mainly trying to see if a disconnect is required.) The unit is going to be hard wired, located outside, and it requires a 30A dedicated 240V circuit for the heating elements and a 15A circuit for lighting. Any help will be appreciated! Thanks in advance.
