Imagine…after a long day of work around the house, in town, or at your desk, you get home to your luxurious hot tub. The water is warm—you don’t have to wait around for it to heat up—and you’re able to just jump right in. The only question, should you leave your hot tub on constantly? For people who are new to owning a hot tub, this is frequently their first question. We are here to shed some light on this confusing issue.
Leaving the Hot Tub On
If you were to shut your hot tub off and then turn it back on every time you went to use it, the cost of repeatedly heating that much water would cause your power bill to skyrocket unnecessarily. Not only that, you would spend time sitting around and waiting for your spa to heat up, which would take away from time you could spend enjoying it. Energy-efficient hot tubs are purposely made to be left on all the time. By selecting a hot tub that is energy-efficient, you can minimize your power bills, and maximize your spa time!
The Bubbling Truth
Hot tubs have specialized heaters that work to keep the water temperature stable, while still managing and limiting power consumption. Depending on the quality of spa you select, this functionality can work either more, or less, efficiently. In hot tubs that are highly energy-efficient, these heaters function optimally. So next time you are considering purchasing a spa, know that with a high-quality energy-efficient spa, your cost up-front may be slightly more, but in the long run your operating costs will be significantly lower.
Time to Shut the Hot Tub Down
Of course, there times when you should shut down your hot tub, such as when you need to clean it or perform maintenance on it. Since spas need to be drained and cleaned every few months, coordinate your spa cleaning schedule with its inspection and maintenance. Another time you would shut down your hot tub is if you are going to be away from home for a while on travel. By coordinating your spa’s maintenance schedule with your seasonal travel schedule, your spa will always be ready for use when you are home.
