In recent years, bidets have gained popularity for their enhanced hygiene, soothing hot water, and environmental benefits, including less need for toilet paper. However, when considering installing a bidet in your bathroom, you might encounter the challenge of bidet wiring. After all, many homes lack an electrical outlet near the toilet area, making bidet installation seem daunting.
We hope this blog helps educate our readers on the topic of electronic bidet wiring. This is a general interest piece, not a step-by-step how-to. Unless you are an experienced DIYer, we recommend speaking with a professional and licensed electrician before attempting to install any electrical equipment — especially those related to plumbing fixtures.
Bidet Types and Bidet Wiring
There are two types of bidet units: the seat top unit and the full complete appliance, each requiring different electrical considerations. Thankfully, for homeowners in Southwest Washington and Northwest Oregon, Prairie Electric is the go-to electrical service provider to tackle this kind of project with expertise and precision.
Seat Top Unit Wiring
The bidet seat unit is a popular choice due to its convenience and ease of installation. It fits directly onto your existing toilet seat, is positioned in or around the toilet bowl, and requires minimal power.
These units typically operate at lower voltage levels (usually 120V or less). As a result, they can be safely wired into the existing bathroom circuit without the need for additional wiring, new circuits, or new outlets installed (e.g., GFCI outlet at 15 amps).
Prairie Electric’s skilled electricians are well-versed in handling such installations. We’ll ensure that the existing circuit can handle the added load and may recommend simple upgrades if necessary.
By choosing Prairie Electric, homeowners can trust that their bidet toilet seat will be efficiently integrated, leaving no room for potential safety hazards.
Full Appliance Unit Wiring
The full appliance bidet unit, on the other hand, is a comprehensive system that includes features like a built-in water heater, adjustable water pressure, and various cleansing options. These advanced functionalities require higher power consumption, often exceeding 120V. As a result, a new circuit must be installed, connecting all the way back to the electrical panel.
This type of bidet installation demands the expertise of experienced electricians, as it involves dealing with high-power electrical components. Prairie Electric’s team possesses the necessary skills to undertake such projects with utmost care and professionalism. We’ll ensure that the new circuit is installed safely, adhering to all local electrical codes and regulations.
