Having a hot tub through the summer is great for having friends over and enjoying the long balmy evenings together; but for those in the know, using your hot tub in the winter can be just as enjoyable. But is it worth it?
On a crisp, cold day there aren’t many places more inviting than a warm hot tub. Removing the cover and watching the steam rise from the hot water just before a soak can relax you and set you up for the day. For many people, the cold winter weather brings with it many aches and pains that can be relieved by your hot tubs hydrotherapeutic massage jets, with the warm water relaxing tense muscles and the steam helping unblock those stuffy winter flu noses!
Not as Expensive as you Think
Many people are put off running their hot tubs through the winter due to thinking that their electricity bill will go through the roof. We’re here to tell you, with a little maintenance, that isn’t the case! If you have invested in a good quality hot tub cover with a tight-fitting seal, your tub will be efficient at maintaining the temperature without driving up your energy costs.
Another great tip for reducing your energy cost is to reduce how often you use the jets and remember to turn them off when you have finished your soak. Hot tub jets work by blowing air into the water, which will reduce the temperature of the water, meaning that your hot tub will use more energy keeping the water warm.
Accessorise to Maximise Comfort
Some may enjoy a warm soak in the hot tub while being exposed to the colder elements; however, creating a comfortable outdoor space to house a hot tub may be a better solution for others. Depending how connected to the outdoors you wish to be, hot tubs can be protected from the elements by something as simple as an awning or gazebo, right through to a dedicated log cabin.
