Spas And Hot Tubs – Important Efficiency Elements

When purchasing spas and hot tubs, one of the most important aspects you need to consider is efficiency. The last thing you want to do is buy a hot tub that costs you a fortune to run. With that in mind, in this post we are going to take a look at the different elements that impact efficiency.

The first thing you need to consider is the hot tub’s insulation. Your requirements regarding this will depend on whether you are looking for indoor or outdoor hot tubs. If the latter applies, insulation will be exceptionally important. It is crucial because the better insulated your hot tub is, the less you will need to spend when it comes to your utility bills. There are two different techniques that are used for hot tub insulation. The first one is the Full Foam technique, which involves using a combination of low and high-density foam to fill the dead air space inside the hot tub’s inner compartment. The other option is the Dead Air Space technique, which is based on the principle that an insulated and enclosed air space will ensure the hot air is trapped inside. Aside from this, when buying hot tubs and spas, the pump and motor play a vital role in efficiency. Don’t be misguided into believing horsepower rating is the most important aspect, as water flow control is also crucial. After all, if you have an inefficient jet and plumbing system, it won’t matter that you have a turbo-charged pump to propel the water through. Finally, it is imperative to invest in a hot tub cover to ensure the heat does not rise into the atmosphere.
