Hot tubs are one of the best things that you can invest in, and while they’re absolutely ideal for the times where temperatures are at their lowest, the last thing that you want is for them to run your bills to an all-time high. Energy Network Solutions is happy to provide homeowners and business owners alike with the energy management systems that they need to conserve energy and save money.
In today’s blog post, we are going to touch on a few of the things that you can do to make sure that your hot tub isn’t affecting your energy consumption. Let’s dive right in.
Break the Wind
The spot that you choose to place your hot tub has a lot more significance than you may realize. For starters, a windbreak can provide you with some additional privacy when you’re spending time in your hot tub, which is never a bad thing. More importantly, a windbreak can help minimize the amount of heat that you’re losing. Though it may not seem like a big deal, this little difference in placement can ensure that your hot tub isn’t constantly having to heat the water, meaning that you’re not having to pay quite as much to enjoy this amenity.
A hot tub is expensive — we get it. That being said, if you’re going to invest in a hot tub, you want to make sure that you do it right. One of the best things that you can do is purchase a high-quality and will continue to protect your hot tub. Ultimately, these covers are designed to create a seal with the lip of the hot tub and the air outside, in doing so, you don’t have to worry about losing the heat your tub is creating.
Manage Your Thermostat
The entire purpose of a hot tub is to have warm water that you can soak in and relax. This is why it’s crucial your thermostat is not only working but that it’s also constantly on so that you can hop in at any given moment. With that being said, you want to take into account the times where you know for certain that you will not be able to enjoy your tub. For example, if you’re going to be heading out of town for the week, go ahead and turn down the thermostat so that you aren’t paying for energy that you’re not going to use. When you get back, you can turn it back up and get right back to enjoying it.
