How To Save On Your Hot Tub’s Running Cost

Owning a personal hot tub at home could be one of the best investments you can have for yourself. You can have your own safe and happy place where you can relax, release stress, and soothe your body aches after a day or more of being so busy with work and other responsibilities.

However, despite all these benefits, it is also not a secret that having a personal hot tub means a huge investment. The installation process itself already requires money, and so do the cleaning chemicals, accessories, and repair works. To keep it running efficiently for a very long period, you will have to avoid wasting money on its running cost.

Wondering how you can keep your hot tub’s running cost to a minimum? Check out these practical tips.

Keep it well insulated

Keeping your hot tub well insulated will help maintain its temperature. This in turn can reduce the work for your heater often require a lot of power to operate. Among the insulation ideas that could help increase the energy efficiency of your hot tub is the combination of fibreglass panels, rolled fibreglass, spray-on foam, and radiant barriers.

Invest in a good-quality thermal blanket

Whenever a hot tub is not in use, the thermal jacket which sits on top of it prevents heat loss and maintains the tub’s water temperature. By investing in a good quality thermal blanket along with an efficient cover, you can prevent heat loss thus reducing the pressure on your heater.

Get an energy-efficient hot tub cover

While most hot tub purchases come with a cover, it is still worth checking if it is efficient enough. For a good cover to serve its purpose, it has to fit snugly. Pay detailed attention to the hinges as this is where most of the heat escapes. Investing in higher quality (which is usually more costly) will pay off in the long run.

Turn off jets from time to time

While there is no doubt that the hot tub jets can give us the best massage experience while dipping in the hot water, it also makes the heater work harder and consumes a huge amount of energy. Enjoying the hot steam of your hot tub without using the jets from time to time can help you save on energy costs.

Choose the location carefully

Obviously, indoor hot tubs are cheaper to run than those that are placed outdoors. But you can still enjoy an outdoor hot tub while saving on cost at the same time. You can place it in a roofed gazebo, summerhouse, or any other location where your hot tub can be sheltered so the water temperature can be maintained and the heater will not be overworked.

Adjust temperature

there is not much of a difference between the temperatures 100°F to 104°F, lowering the temperature to a few degrees actually has a huge impact on the tub’s energy consumption. It can help reduce your energy bills massively.

simple yet practical tips above will not only help you save energy costs in running your hot tub, but they can also help you in prolonging the life of your hot tub, reducing the possibility of costly repairs.

EJ Payne helped us move our hot tub, including organising crane hire. Laura in the office was extremely helpful and efficient, keeping me updated throughout. On the day of the move, the team were reliable, professional and courteous. I'd happily recommend and will have no hesitation using their services in the future.

Great company. They have spent many hours this summer refurbishing a very neglected outdoor swimming pool built in 1976. Nothing was too much trouble. I am looking forward to using it daily next year.

Had the latest Palma hot tub from Platinum Spas installed by Adam this weekend at the house. From the point of initially going into the store a few weeks ago, upto the point of final installation we found the service excellent, professional and very informative, something that gives testament to just how may decades the store has been open and operated for. On the day of installation, Adam was excellent and on completion talked us through the water chemistry and bottles of chemicals supplied to help to maintain a perfectly balanced hot tub in terms of the water quality. We will be taking out a service package with Paynes to maintain the tub across the coming years. Extremely happy and look forward to many years of total relaxation and mindfulness. Cheers Adam and the team at EJ Paynes - TOP JOB !! Ian and Tina (Weston Coyney)
