110 Volt /220 Volt Steam Shower Purchase


I am in the process of purchasing this steam shower from Wasauna. They have told me that I can have either a 110 Volt or a 220 Volt version of this shower. Does anyone have any advice about which will be cheaper to install and which will be more energy efficient? Are there any major advantages to using one over the other? Thanks.

220 volt is always cheaper to operate than 110 volt.

That goes for numerous items made in plumbing, consult with your electrician to confirm this.

If your steam generator can be hooked-up 120 or 240 it will take the same amount of power either way. All you are changing is how it gets it's power. The 240 volt installtion can use a smaller wire (and pull half the amps), but the actual number of watts flowing through the wires is the same and your power bill will be the same.
