At RnR, we hear from many Calgarians who have always dreamed of owning a hot tub, but they’re concerned about the environmental impact. Spas, of course, require energy to stay hot, but we’re proud to stand behind MAAX hot tubs, which go above and beyond in their goal to produce some of the most environmentally friendly spas available in Canada. With Earth Day just around the corner, let’s take a look at some of the features MAAX includes to make a greener spa option for Canadians.
The Most Advanced Insulation
At the core of MAAX’s ultimate hot tub insulation system is the combined force of several technologies.
Northern Exposure® is a unique thermal barrier technology. Reflective copper material lines all four sides of the spa, as well as the floor and cover. As radiant heat is generated by the pump and plumbing, the copper barrier reflects it back into the spa to help maintain the water temperature, increasing efficiency and reducing energy costs.
BlueMaxx replaces the toxic spray foam insulation that other spa manufactures use. Instead of nasty, toxic foam, BlueMaxx is a removable layer of insulation. BlueMaxx is thermally reflective, made partially from recycled materials, and is treated with a non-toxic fire retardant. BlueMaxx provides the highest insulation efficiency rating on the market, is environmentally friendly, and allows for easier repairs to your hot tub. That’s what we call a win-win-win.
Recycle and Reduce!
The beautiful siding used on MAAX hot tubs looks and feels like real, natural wood, but it’s actually a recycled composite material called DuraMaax Cabinetry. DuraMaax Cabinetry siding is completely waterproof, so neither rain nor snow will damage or stain it. It’s built to last forever and require no maintenance — unlike real wood which would eventually rot and need to be restained regularly. Impervious to insect damage and resistant to spintering and cracking, DuraMaax locks in heat and seals the cold out, completing the last piece of MAAX’s efficiency puzzle.
Enjoying your hot tub doesn’t have to come at the cost of the environment. By choosing a reputable manufacturer, like MAAX, you can ensure your spa has the best innovative technologies and smallest carbon footprint possible.
