With the cost of nearly everything on the rise, finding ways to save is more and more of a priority for everyone. More than ever before, energy efficient qualities are at the top of the list for those looking to purchase a new spa. The key to energy efficiency in a spa is a combination of warming water temperature quickly while then preventing the heat from escaping. Hot Spring® Spas are built with this in mind. Check out these five features that make Hot Spring Spas super energy efficient.
Superior Heating Mechanisms
Maximizing the output of the heaters and effectiveness at transferring heat to the water is the first piece of the energy efficiency puzzle. Hot Spring Spas have uniquely designed and constructed heaters to optimize energy use. The No-Fault® heater uses a double-pass feature to heat water in two energy efficient stages.
Additionally, a heat pump shroud was patented by Hot Spring to make the most of the exhaust heat from the pump. As the pump is working, it creates heat that the shroud redirects to help warm the water without any additional energy required.
Energy Efficient Circulation
Once the water is heated, it needs to be circulated throughout the spa, which can require a substantial amount of power. Hot Spring Spas make use of a dedicated circulation pump that is designed to use minimum energy. The Highlife® and Limelight® Collections utilize the SilentFlo 5000® circulation pump. This pump remains working around the clock all while using less energy than a 40-watt light bulb. Impressive, right?!
There’s no better way to waste energy with your hot tub than allowing heat to escape once it’s created. To combat this energy loss, Hot Spring Spas feature industry-leading insulation. Spas in the Highlife Collection are insulated with the same polyurethane foam that is commonly used in restaurant walk-in coolers and commercial freezers.
The Limelight features FiberCor™ insulation. This cutting-edge insulation provides each spa with four times the density of most other spa insulation foams, creating unmatched heat loss prevention. In doing so, Hot Spring Spas require only a fraction of the energy use and costs of other spas.
Unique Hot Spring Jets
Hot Spring Spas are famous for their effective and powerful jets that provide targeted pressure and relief with each soak. Of course, jets require energy to work but with Hot Spring Spas you can run your jets without fear of running up your energy bill.
For one, the WaveMaster® Jet Pump only engages when you need it. Additionally, the SmartJet® system allows you to select which jets to engage with each use. If your spa has empty seats or if you want a certain area targeted, you can select only the jets you desire to save energy.
Custom Hot Tub Cover
The figurative cherry on top of your Hot Spring Spa energy efficiency equation is a quality spa cover. While heating and insulation are vital, their gains are undone if heat is able to escape when the spa is not in use. That’s where a spa cover comes in. Hot Spring Spa Covers are custom fit with a tight locking system to effectively keep heat in.
