Swim spas are an excellent way of combining relaxation and fitness in a compact space in your home. However, one major concern for many people is the expense of heating them and whether they’re costly to maintain. After conducting research and speaking to industry professionals, we’ve found that swim spas are generally not expensive to heat, especially when comparing them to traditional hot tubs. Here are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to swim spas and heating costs:
The cost of heating your swim spa will depend on its size, insulation, and the type of features you use.
If you plan on using the swim spa primarily for exercise, it may not need to be heated as high as a traditional hot tub.
Most swim spas have advanced insulation technology that helps to keep the water warm and reduce energy consumption.
The use of an electric turbine or hydrotherapy jets may increase the cost of heating and electricity consumption.
The cost of heating your swim spa will be lower during warmer months when outside temperatures help keep the water warm (especially if the swim spa is located outside).
Overall, swim spas are not exorbitantly expensive to heat. With proper insulation and careful consideration of the features you use, you can enjoy your swim spa without worrying about breaking the bank on electricity bills.
