Getting a hot tub is an exciting prospect – just imagine unwinding in warm, soothing water after a long day. But, before deciding on your ideal spa, t here’s an important factor you’ll want to consider: energy usage. Without the careful selection of an energy efficient spa, your monthly utilities can skyrocket. Thankfully, there are dozens of innovative hot tubs that can prevent this substantial bill increase.

The primary factors in determining the monthly cost of operating your hot tub are:

  1. Your energy rate
    Your energy rate, or how much you pay per kilowatt (kWh), is the most significant factor in determining your hot tub’s operating cost. By opting for a longer-term plan with your energy provider, you can secure a lower cost per kWh, giving you more control over your expenses.
  2. How energy efficient the hot tub is
    A spa that utilizes energy more efficiently will drastically decrease its reliance on your energy grid.

1. FreeHeat™

Arctic Spas’ proprietary insulation technology, FreeHeat™, is the gold standard for combating heat loss in hot tubs. By only insulating your spa’s floor and walls, Arctic Spas® leaves internal elements foam-free and accessible. This means that, heat naturally produced from internal components can be used to heat the shell and water of your hot tub, drastically decreasing energy requirements and cost per use.
