Hot Tubs Fact Sheet: Energy Efficient Hot Tub or Spa
Talk about a low-cost, high-reward investment!
Let’s learn about the most recent improvements that can have a significant impact on your utility bill.
Choose the Most Energy Efficient Hot Tub
The problem with this is that the upfront savings result in increased long term costs. We think you will find that purchasing a higher quality hot tub means you’ll save significantly in monthly operation costs.
Heating costs are the #1 ongoing expense of operating a hot tub. Maintaining water temperature is key.
The more you have to heat a hot tub, the higher your energy bill will be at the end of the month.
Let’s explore some Energy Saving features.
Energy Saver Hot Tub Features
When looking for an energy-efficient hot tub, there are certain features you need to keep an eye out for.
Pay attention to the cover, tub wall insulation, and pump system.
It’s vital that your hot tub has a well-insulated cover that creates a tight seal on the top of the tub. This will trap the warm air and energy in the hot tub.
Even a small leak will increase the evaporation rate, which also increases the dissipation of heat.
You should choose a cover with closed-cell insulation. This will reduce water absorption and increase the useful life of your cover.
Our Mylovac™ cover is an upgrade that’s well worth the investment. It features foam twice as dense as the industry standard.
The insulation is then wrapped in a polybag material and vacuum sealed.
This sealed insulation is then paired with locking straps, carry handles, longer wind flaps, and insulating baffle to give you the most protective cover on the market.
Tub Wall Insulation
Look for a tub with thick wall insulation around five inches. Keep in mind that thicker isn’t always better. Insulation follows the rule of diminishing returns, so you get a smaller and smaller benefit, the thicker the insulation.
This unique system uses high-density polyurethane foam from the lip underside and on the entire cabinet wall.
You’ll never see fiber-glass used, which is a cheap and ineffective insulation material for hot tubs because there’s a high risk of it getting wet and becoming ineffective.
Select Your Energy Efficient Hot Tub
As you can see, an energy efficient hot tub will make a significant difference in your expected operating costs.
This will tell you how much energy the hot tub needs to run and how well it will retain the heat that’s generated.
