How To Reduce Your Hot Tub Energy Costs

by | Jan 5, 2023

Knowing how much energy your tub will consume will allow you to make the right choice when purchasing a tub. Most modern models are designed to be more energy efficient. In terms of cost, a well-built, properly insulated hot tub will cost you about $1 per day.

This article will uncover 6 ways you can reduce your hot tub’s energy costs.


Vacation Mode

Thinking of taking a vacation or even a weekend trip? Setting your tub to vacation mode or “economy mode” can reduce your energy costs by using your heater less. What this means is that the heaters will only run when the water needs to be filtered.


Made to Last

A well-built tub that is made to last will reduce the use of resources that it takes to replace your spa in the future. Arctic Spas® are built to last using the same construction concepts and practices as building a home and engineered for the world’s harshest climates.


A Well Built Cabinet

We construct each cabinet using kiln-dried, clear, furniture-grade Western Red cedar, a durable material that is built to last ensuring that you won’t need to replace them in the future. Our cabinets are equipped with up to 8 access doors, including two on each side allowing for easy access for maintenance and any upgrades you may require.


Energy-Friendly Hot Tub

When shopping for a tub, make sure to purchase one that is energy friendly. Choose a tub that is properly insulated and contains energy-efficient heaters and pumps.

All of our models are constructed with a self-supporting shell and come with a 5″ thick cover to ensure that your heat stays contained within your backyard spa!


Automated Salt Water Care System

Compared to traditional sanitizer chemicals like chlorine and bromine, using an automated salt water care system can save you costs as you will need to drain your spa less frequently.

When you use traditional chemicals and systems, you will need to drain your tub 3-4 times per year. With our automated salt water care system Spa Boy®  you will only need to drain your tub once a year! Rather than solely relying on inconvenient and imprecise manual testing and the addition of sanitizer to your spa, Spa Boy® monitors and helps maintain ideal spa water conditions. Not only will this reduce maintenance, but it helps reduce your water consumption.

As a global leader and world-class manufacturer, it is our goal to make the world a more environmentally sustainable place.  For a more in-depth view of how much energy your hot tub will consume, please read our article “How Much Energy Does a Hot Tub Consume”.
