How to Make Your Spa More Energy Efficient
Hot Spring Spas’ supreme-quality building materials make them the most energy-efficient hot tubs on the market. We’re proud to carry this lineup of spas that use the best insulation, the quietest, most efficient pumps, and intelligent filtering systems. Investing in a Hot Spring Spa is the ultimate answer to energy efficiency, but no matter which hot tub you own, following these guidelines helps ensure your spa runs as efficiently as possible.
Keep It Covered
This may seem like a no-brainer, but keeping your hot tub covered when not in use is one of the most helpful actions you can take to improve your spa’s energy usage. Keeping your spa covered helps hold in heat in colder months and helps keep debris out in every season, ensuring that your pump and filter aren’t working overtime.
Get It Refurbished
If you have an older-model spa, Emerald Springs Spas can replace worn parts or accessories to give your hot tub new life. Newer pumps and filters use better technology than those of years’ past, and often, replacing certain parts can help your old spa run almost as efficiently as a brand new model. We can let you know if your spa is a candidate for part replacement.
Keep Water Levels Steady
We’re not just talking about water chemistry, although maintaining proper pH levels is necessary for your spa to use energy efficiently. And of course, you’ll want to treat hard water before it becomes a problem. Mineral buildup can clog and slow down the inner workings of your spa. For energy efficiency, however, actual water levels can make a noticeable difference in how your spa runs. Do you have enough water in your spa? Not having enough water to pump is extremely hard on your spa’s motor, so be sure to keep your spa filled to the optimal level.
Change Filters Regularly
Clogged filters do no good. Regularly cleaning and/or replacing dirty filters helps keep contaminates from building up and ensures water flows smoothly. If your spa is a post-August 2009 model, make sure you have an ACE salt water sanitizing system installed for the cleanest water possible.
