Most Energy Efficient Hot Tubs and Spas

February 23rd, 2011 by

Operating Cost…..maybe the “new” feature.

Its going to be a real driving factor for many spa buyers in the future. Historically, it has not been.  Features always won out,  bigger the better, more jets, fancy lights, over sized stereos, flat screen TVs, anything that was shiny sold. The same design strategy that brought us the HUMMER was also spurring the inspiration for hot tubs.

No doubt things are changing.  Today I saw a release by Bullfrog Spas, a small, yet good company out the Salt Lake area, touting their  low operation cost, they even were brave enough to create a graphic showing themselves better than the giants of the industry (Sundance Spas/Jacuzzi and Hot Spring Spas).

The graphic told me a couple things; 1- Their phone is ringing with a Hot Spring Spas representative calling and asking them to recall the graphic or be ready for war (at least that was my experience some years ago in a similar situation). 2- Bullfrog is brave (bravery can be confused for arrogance).  3-  It’s probably true.  Their company culture is honorable by spa industry standards.

Bullfrog’s claim is they rank high on CEC list of approved efficient hot tubs.  Which in turn caused me to look up who’s been approved.  I was surprised to see a rather short list of approved spa manufacturers.  I have included a link and the actual list from the CA.GOV site.  One fact worth mentioning is Roto Molded spas, like Free Flow Spa or Strong Spas, are the best design for heat retention, so I’m surprised they are not listed.

There are a number of factors to the ownership costs of a hot tub, a quality spa cover spa chemicals, spa filters, and spa parts, all play a part in the ongoing expense.  For those items, we (HotTubWorks.com)are here to help.
