Why is hot tub energy efficiency important?
The Jacuzzi® Approach to Hot Tub Energy Efficiency
Here are some common FAQs around energy efficiency and consumption with hot tubs
Jacuzzi® hot tubs are built from the ground up to use as little energy as possible and maximise that energy throughout its various functions. From construction and insulation to pumps, jets and programmes, we design and manufacture a hydromassage experience that keeps the heat where it should be and the focus firmly on you.
Hot tub insulation is something that changes from brand to brand and comes down to the manufacturer’s choice of insulation material; at Jacuzzi® we use dense foam insulation coupled with a lighter intermediary foam to cover most of our hot tub’s equipment and plumbing. Where other manufacturers might only apply partial foam insulation to the floor or inside the cabinets, we use full-foam insulation along the floor, around the shell and within the cabinet. This allows a large amount of the heat generated from the parts and plumbing to remain in the hot tub and disperse back into the water, further heating it and reducing the energy required to maintain the set temperature.
With market-leading insulation and high quality heaters, you can be assured a Jacuzzi® hot tub is one of the most energy efficient hot tubs to run, using an average of 6kw per day to maintain and use.
Hot tub covers are a fantastic way to keep the temperature of your hot tub consistent for less energy. Our covers are made using high density foam with a protective outer layer that insulates the water below and prevents heat from escaping upwards. If you’re using your hot tub in the winter months, a cover will help keep more heat generated by the hot tub inside the shell, meaning it won’t have to use as much energy to heat the water to your desired level. An added bonus of using a cover is that your hot tub will heat up much faster, meaning you can start sitting back and unwinding even sooner.
