When it comes to a hot tub, energy efficiency is a very important aspect to consider. Inefficient hot tubs can often cause a severe increase in the cost of your electric bill. Thankfully, Sundance & Jacuzzi Hot Tubs are specifically known for their energy efficiency and quality. By discussing the aspects which determine energy efficiency in hot tubs, it should be possible to make an informed decision concerning your hot tub usage.
Use Your Hot Tub Responsibly
No matter how energy efficient a hot tub is, it is important to realize that user responsibility is essential for achieving energy efficiency. Most hot tubs are typically kept at temperature even when they are not being used, which can cause a dramatic increase in your electricity bill. Plan to turn off any hot tub when it won’t be used for a long period of time. It also important to frequently replace the filter and add disinfectant to prevent the growth of micro-organisms, which both increase cloggage of water flow.
Plan For Energy Efficiency
According to Home Energy Pros, “With the cost of electricity at 15 cents a kilowatt/hour, the hot tub is costing $46.50 a month or $558 per year.” There are several strategies a hot tub owner can consider when it comes to lowering this cost. Lowering the temperature of the standby mode and ensuring the tub is adequately covered when not in use both reduce the use of electricity. Consider turning off the hot tub when it will not be used for an extended period of time. This strategy can also be utilized during the winter and summer with the added requirement of draining the water if the hot tub is outdoors should the temperature fall below freezing.
