Soaking in a hot tub is a great way to relax, unwind and enjoy nature. But, are hot tubs built to endure Alberta’s winter weather? If you’re thinking of investing in a hot tub, do your research first. Find a spa that is specifically designed to handle harsh winter weather. At RnR Hot Tubs, we carry many winter-friendly options from American Whirlpool and Vita Spa. Take a look at some features to pay attention to when purchasing a hot tub for winter use.
- Insulation: A well-insulated hot tub is designed to thrive in cold conditions and save on your energy bill. An insulated cabinet with air space to capture heat from the pump motor is a good choice. Look for a spa that has high-density insulation with a reflective backing to bounce radiant heat back into the hot tub. Even better, several layers of different types of insulation ensure maximum heat retention. An insulated moulded base is critical to prevent the ground from soaking up the heat and to keep moisture and vermin out of the hot tub cabinet.
- Insulating Cover: Make sure you get a premium grade, strong, durable, cover made to insulate the spa. The cover should fit snugly to keep cold air out and warm air in. It should be tailored to fit your specific hot tub.
- Reviews: A great way to know whether a hot tub will stand up against winter weather is to check user ratings and reviews. Look online. Read deep and wide. See what those who live in a similar environment have to say about their experience with the various hot tub companies and designs.
Knowing what to look for when choosing a cold weather hot tub is vital to making the best purchase for your family. Ask the dealer about how each spa is insulated. Pay attention to the cover it is sold with. Check out consumer reviews. You can’t go wrong with a Maax spa! They have the features you need in a cold-weather hot tub.
