Your Hot Tub and Your Utility Bill

Advances in technology have reduced the cost of hot tub ownership. Combine that fact with some pro tips on how to maintain your hot tub in a cost effective manner and it’s clear that the cost of owning and maintaining a new hot tub really isn’t that much!

Hot tub ownership costs can vary depending on a number of things such as the size of the hot tub, quality of construction, the outside temperature, etc.

Bear these things in mind:

  • The more you use the hot tub, the more energy it will require to maintain the desired temperature.
  • Strange as it may sound, it does cost LESS to leave your hot tub at the desired set temperature than it does to reheat the water for every use. Reheating cold water takes a lot more energy than it does to maintain the temperature of water that’s already hot. Needless to say, we recommend you leave your hot tub temperature right where you like it even when you aren’t using your hot tub.
  • Adding a high quality cover to your hot tub will help maintain the water temperature, saving energy and saving you money.
  • Keeping your hot tub filters clean and keeping the water maintained will save you money too! The more frequently you have to drain your hot tub and add fresh new water, the higher your water bill will be and the higher your energy bill will spike as you heat the new water.

Our Hot Spring hot tubs are particularly energy efficient. Check out these features:

  • The SilentFlo 5000® circulation pump, found in the Highlife® and Limelight® collections, continuously circulates water while using less energy than a forty-watt light bulb. This pump decreases the need for long heating cycles and filtration, which saves you from high electricity costs.
  • WaveMaster® jet pumps save money by only being activated and powered on as needed.
  • The SmartJet® system allows you to select which jets to power, which ultimately results in lower overall energy consumption.
  • Custom-fit spa covers prevent heat loss. Our covers are made with multiple layers of polyurethane foam, which trap heat inside the spa. This foam expands and contracts to fill all gaps.
  • Staying on top of the latest technological developments in insulation allows us to manufacture the most energy-efficient hot tubs available. Our Limelight®and Hot Spot® spas use our proprietary FiberCor® insulation, while our luxury Highlife® and Highlife® NXT spas use multi-density full foam insulation.
  • Our LED lights used in all of our spas use less electricity than standard bulbs.
