What Is a Hot Tub?

To put it simply, the term “hot tub” refers to an above-ground spa. A hot tub or spa is a self-contained vessel in which hot water and jets provide users with a relaxing soaking experience. While there are numerous makes and models of hot tubs, the basic operation of all hot tubs is fairly similar. The same mechanical structure is responsible for water containment plus fundamental functions such as heating. 

How Is a Hot Tub Operated?

Electricity is essential to operate your hot tub, and it’s critical to understand the parameters required for operation – and to hire a skilled electrician to assist with installation. Additionally, should you keep your hot tub on? The weather determines this. If you live in a warm region with just a few soaks per year, you can lower the temperature between usage. If you live in a cooler region and just use it a few times a week, leaving it running will save you money. However, if you’re leaving for the winter and won’t be using your tub for many months, you should consider winterizing your tub, utilizing professional dealer services.

Reasons for Installing Your Hot Tub Inside

Additional Privacy

If there’s one thing the 4 walls of your home can provide, it’s privacy and seclusion. If you value your privacy and want to avoid the prying eyes and ears of curious neighbours, an indoor hot tub installation may be the best option. Laugh, relax, and enjoy your spa without having to worry about your installation not providing the privacy you desire.

Controlled Environment

Regardless of where you reside, there is no way to guarantee your hot tub soak will be free of rain, wind and other weather factors. At times, the weather can be erratic. Placing your hot tub inside your home eliminates this problem. Constantly enjoy a controlled environment, even more so with a customizable thermostat. Not to mention that you can avoid the chill most of us feel when we leave the spa and enter the night air.

Increased Safety

Another advantage of an indoor environment is increased safety. By installing an indoor hot tub, you can eliminate the chance of animals visiting your hot tub or staying in your backyard. You can prevent unpleasant encounters with animals and other pests by installing an indoor hot tub.

Keeping your hot tub indoors can also help reduce the number of contaminants in the water. When installed outside, rainwater, leaves, insects, and other debris can easily fall into your spa water. However, you may notice that your water remains cleaner for an extended time with an indoor installation.

Reasons for Installing Your Hot Tub Outside

Why You Should Consider Langley Hot Tub InstallationTraditional

Nothing compares to a classic and elegant hot tub installation. By situating your hot tub above ground near your patio, deck or lounge area, you can create a custom spa installation that the whole family can enjoy. Increase relaxation and enjoyment by adding potted plants, in-ground lighting and outdoor furniture.

Regular Breaths of Fresh Air

Without question, life can be busy. It can be challenging to find time to do the things you like such as spending time outside and breathing fresh air. However, with the addition of an outdoor hot tub, it’s simple to find inspiration to go outdoors. Spend time resting pleasantly in the heat of your jet-driven outdoor spa while taking in the refreshing air – not to mention the opportunity to listen to nature’s sounds and look up at the magnificent night sky.

Increase the Size of Your Backyard

While most backyards serve a function, installing a hot tub can radically transform how you use your outside area. Install a canopy above or nearby, together with matching outdoor sofas and a patio set. Twinkle lights, a fire pit and in-ground lighting will all add to the ambience of your relaxation area. Decorate with throw blankets and pillows, outdoor candles, wooden signs and seasonal items.

By adding a hot tub to your backyard, you can expand your living room into the great outdoors and completely optimize use of your backyard space.

More People Can Be Accommodated

The beauty of most backyards is the number of guests who can be pleasantly accommodated. Even if no one is soaking in your outdoor hot tub, they can still relax and converse from an outdoor patio or lounge set. While an indoor spa installation accommodates a few individuals, it may seem a bit confining when enclosed by 4 walls.
