How Much Does it Cost to Run a Hot Tub?

Maax Spas has been working very hard and have undergone intensive research and development to be able to say they have one of the most energy efficient hot tubs in the industry.

Exclusive to Maax Spas, the ThermoLock V insulation system now features the eco-friendly BlueMaxx insulation.Made from recycled natural fiber, it is approved by the U.S. Green Building Council. The insulation contains no chemical irritants, is treated with a borate-based solution to prevent mold/mildew growth, pest infestation and acts as a fire retardant. BlueMaax replaces urethane foam commonly used in ʺfoam filledʺ hot tubs. The ʺfoam fillingʺ process in conventional spas can produce as much as 50 lbs. of voltaic organic components (VOCˈs) which are harmful to the environment. The new energy system also allows for easy access and can be taken out and put back together to factory specifications right in your own home.

Thermo-Lock V is the ultimate in sound and heat energy management for your hot tub. The unique thermal barrier technology recycles radiant heat energy for faster, more efficient heating and energy cost reductions. Radiant heat reflective insulation is applied to the sealed ABS base, which prohibits heat loss through the floor. All four sides, plus the floor are lined with reflective material, combined with BlueMaax to create an infrared thermal barrier. Radiant heat energy from the pumps and equipment reflects back to the spa and is absorbed into the plumbing. Helping raise and maintain water temperature, improving heat efficiency. Energy created by the spa stays in the spa.

Today, governmental agencies in many different states are taking an interest in the energy consumption of hot tubs. In the state of California, the California Energy Commission has mandated efficiency standards to which all hot tub manufacturers must comply. In accordance with California Law, every Maax Spas model exceeds the efficiency standards, some by up to 20%.Conserving energy reduces monthly utility bills which not only saves money, but also lessens our carbon footprint for a better tomorrow.
