Winter Sunshine In Addison & Richardson

Posted on March 3, 2011

Texas is known for its long hot summer days, but in the winter time it’s usually too cold to catch some rays. Because some people want to keep up their tan year round, they install a tanning bed in their homes. Tanning beds also have additional benefits; they can provide a place to relax when you come home from work, and they also can help people who have Seasonal Affective Disorder or depression during winter months. Tanning beds can be fun, but to install one in your home is not quite as simple as bringing it home and plugging it in. Tanning beds use a lot of electricity, so it is usually a good idea to run a dedicated circuit. This way, the power load required by the tanning bed won’t overload the rest of the house, and it will also allow the tanning bed to work optimally. Tanning beds also usually require special electrical outlets. A tanning bed outlet is usually 220V, while a standard household outlet is 120V. In addition you may want to install a whole house surge suppressor to prevent damage to the tanning bed electrical components by sudden jolts of electricity.
