When shopping around for new Jacuzzi hot tubs, Ontario residents should consider energy efficiency as a key factor when comparing the various hot tub models on the market. Every hot tub uses energy to heat the water and run the spa jets. However, energy usage varies substantially between models. Purchasing an energy efficient hot tub will save you a considerable amount of money over the lifetime of your hot tub.

Ontario Weather Makes Insulation Essential:

The thickness and type of the insulation has a significant impact on the amount of energy used by your hot tub. When you are using your hot tub, the heat will seep out through the shell into the surrounding environment. The heaters then have to work much harder to maintain the optimum water temperature. A well-insulated hot tub will prevent heat loss and require less energy to maintain the heat of the water. Hot tub models available at Jacuzzi Ontario feature full-foam insulation, which provides optimal insulation and energy efficiency.

Hot Tub Cover:

Purchasing the right hot tub cover can save you energy by reducing moisture evaporation and heat loss. Studies have shown that a covered hot tub uses up to 75% less energy to heat the water than an uncovered hot tub. Toronto residents can save money by harnessing the heat of the hot tub under a well-maintained hot tub cover. The ProEndure hot tub cover features a high-density inner core and unique gasket that seals in warmth and prevents the heated water evaporating.

Cheap Hot Tubs May Cost You More:

If you are keen to own a hot tub but want to keep your costs low, you may be tempted to buy a cheap hot tub. However, cheap hot tubs may not be as energy efficient as models that are slightly more expensive. While the initial outlay may be lower, cheap hot tubs can cost much more to run over the years. Manufacturers of cheap hot tubs cut costs by using fewer materials, meaning that cheap hot tubs have less insulation. Cheap heaters and spa pumps run less efficiently, making running costs of cheap hot tubs more expensive in the long term.

Energy Efficient Hot Tub Accessories:

While you may have to pay a little more for hot tub accessories in addition to your hot tub, they can be a wise investment. A wind break will prevent vital heat being lost through dissipation in to the air. Hot tub lights can enhance the look and ambience of your hot tub. Ensure you choose LED lights, which are less expensive and need to be replaced less frequently than other types of bulb.
