electrician that you have normal household current and sufficient
amperage if you are in doubt.
A dedicated circuit breaker is necessary for most electric kilns. All
electric kilns carry an amperage rating. This refers to the circuit
breaker and outlet type required for the kiln. For any electric
kiln you will want to have an electrician install the necessary breaker
and outlet before your kiln arrives. We will assist you with the
specifications when you order.
If you are installing a kiln vent you will need an outlet nearby for that as well.

Kiln Services: Assisted Inside Setup of Kilns.
We offer professional kiln installation. This applies to deliveries of new kilns when kiln is shipped on our truck.
Kiln installation is a two person job.
There are two options:
a) Assisted Inside Setup : where you provide an able bodied assistant. $200.
b) Unassisted Inside Setup : where we provide two persons. $300.
These prices may vary depending on the location and complexity of your installation requirements.
Electrical service upgrade must be completed before hand by a qualified electrician.
We will unload the equipment and bring it inside. We
will set up the equipment in its desired location. We will remove all
packing debris. If a kiln with venting system is ordered we will mount
the vent to the kiln and drill/modify the kiln for proper operation. We do not
mount the wall-mounted vents. We do not cut holes in walls or ceilings. We will
attach the vent pipe to existing ductwork. The ductwork must be in place
at the time of the kiln installation and properly located so that the flex-pipe
from the vent will reach it. We do not extend the building’s ductwork to reach
the kiln. We do not make any electrical hook ups.
