Hot Tub Heaters
Hot tub heaters are important to maximize the enjoyment of your spa experience.
Spa and hot tub heaters are commonly found in electric, natural gas and propane models.
heaters use extensive technology, so that all you do is choose the best
water temperature and voila! Of course you will need to choose between
the various heating capacities and BTUs, efficiencies, prices and
BTUs (British Thermal Units) express
the energy required to increase the temperature of the water by one
degree. Keep in mind that the higher the BTU amount, the quicker the
water can be heated but also the more money it will cost. The spa
heater you choose and its BTU output will depend on the quickness you
wish your spa's water to heat.
Solar hot tub heaters use glass or plastic collectors that have the water run through them to heat them up.
Energy Efficient Spa Heating
Solar covers are a great way to retain heat in your spa's water. Solar
heating pads are similar to solar blankets in that you place them on
your hot tub's water and they retain heat by stopping water from
evaporating. There are also covers designed specifically for the
purpose of insulating the water.
Properly insulated tubs will greatly assist in keeping the hot tub
water warm. Make sure that the tub is adequately filled with foam
Stabilizing the temperature saves energy compared to constant radical
fluctuations. If you're on vacation or away for extended periods and
the tub isn't in use, then this is something to consider.
you have an outdoor hot tub, consider sheltering it from the wind.
Fences and lattices work well for this - and will give you more privacy
and create a sound barrier as well
