It also requires a dedicated circuit.

I suspect that theree are already other things on the existing circuit.

A new circuit will have to be run from the circuit breaker panel.

If you aren't familar with electrical wiring then you will want to get an electrican for this.

They also have special tools and tricks that can often allow for wiring to installed in existing walls while minimizing any damage to the finished surfaces.
