Energy Efficient Hot Tubs

Jacuzzi® Hot Tub Energy Efficiency

Jacuzzi® is a leading brand in the hot tub industry that places great importance on the energy efficiency of their products. With over 60 years of knowledge, advanced built-in systems, and state-of-the-art technology, their hot tubs are designed to be energy efficient while still providing the full benefits of authentic hydromassage and relaxation.

All Jacuzzi® hot tubs go through vigorous testing by CEC (California Energy Commission), and they have found that on average their hot tubs are 22% more efficient than the strict standard’s set. The Jacuzzi® SmartTub® app allows us to get actual real world usage data and on average, a UK customer uses around 5kWh per day* to enjoy their Jacuzzi® hot tub. To put that into perspective, it is only about the same as a family of 4 taking a 10 minute shower a day.

Why Energy Efficiency Matters

Including a Jacuzzi® hot tub in your regular wellness routine can introduce new ways of relaxation and recovery from the daily challenges of life. However, like any luxury home appliance, it is important to consider the energy requirement associated with it. At Jacuzzi®, they have incorporated energy efficiency into all aspects of their design and manufacturing processes to ensure optimal performance without unnecessary energy wastage. This is a crucial focus in today’s world.

The SmartTub™ app provides genuine usage data, showing that our customers, on average, use only about 5kWh per day* to enjoy their Jacuzzi® hot tubs. This aligns with our commitment to delivering outstanding hydromassage and health benefits in an energy-efficient manner.

Understanding your home’s energy consumption enables effective cost monitoring, allowing you to focus on what matters most – yourself.

*Based on 1,850 privately owned spas in the UK, used throughout 2022-2023, equipped with SmartTub™.

Why Energy Efficiency Matters

The Jacuzzi® Approach To Hot Tub Energy Efficiency

Superior Construction

Jacuzzi® hot tubs are built to withstand extreme weather conditions, ensuring sustained energy efficiency throughout their lifetime. The ProFusion® shell, a three-layered scratch-resistant acrylic, is hardened to endure the elements while aiding in heat retention. ProCabinetry® complements this by maximising heat retention, enhancing overall energy efficiency.

Upgrade your hot tub with SmartTub™ technology to enhance energy efficiency. Offering real-time data on energy usage, water temperature, remote access, and locking controls, SmartTub™ empowers you to modulate temperature based on usage, leading to significant cost reductions. Proven to help hot tub owners monitor and reduce energy costs, SmartTub™ is a game-changer in the pursuit of efficiency.

PowerPro® Jets and Pumps

Jacuzzi® jets not only provide an excellent hydromassage to refresh tired muscles and rejuvenate the body, but they are also designed to use as little energy as possible, making them highly efficient. With their streamlined design and top-notch performance, they reduce the overall level of energy required, which helps save you money in the long run. The pumps incorporated are also highly energy-efficient and transfer heat generated by the motor back into the water, providing maximum power to the jets without incurring a severe energy penalty.

Programmable Cycles

Certain models come with the option to customise heating and filtration cycles. This feature allows you to set your hot tub to operate efficiently when needed, without incurring unnecessary costs. Individuals or couples who use their hot tub at a lower frequency can benefit from reduced costs through filtration and heating programmes that fit their needs, whilst larger groups can ensure their hot tub remains functional and safe to use despite more regular use.

LED Lighting

LED lights in and around a Jacuzzi® hot tub provide a soothing ambiance for relaxation. They also offer a complete chromotherapy experience, while being highly energy-efficient. These lights are proven to last longer and cost less than equivalent bulbs, and produce more light overall. So, you can enjoy your wellness routine without worrying about any additional energy waste.

Hot tub covers are a fantastic way to keep the temperature of your hot tub consistent for less energy. Jacuzzi® hot tub covers are made using high density foam with a protective outer layer that insulates the water below and prevents heat from escaping upwards. If you’re using your hot tub in the winter months, a cover will help keep more heat generated by the hot tub inside the shell, meaning it won’t have to use as much energy to heat the water to your desired level. An added bonus of using a cover is that your hot tub will heat up much faster, meaning you can start sitting back and unwinding even sooner.

Hot tub insulation is something that changes from brand to brand and comes down to the manufacturer’s choice of insulation material; at Jacuzzi® they use dense foam insulation coupled with a lighter intermediary foam to cover most of their hot tub’s equipment and plumbing. Where other manufacturers might only apply partial foam insulation to the floor or inside the cabinets, they use full-foam insulation along the floor, around the shell and within the cabinet. This allows a large amount of the heat generated from the parts and plumbing to remain in the hot tub and disperse back into the water, further heating it and reducing the energy required to maintain the set temperature.

Regardless which Jacuzzi® hot tub you choose, whether entry level or top of the range, you can be guaranteed in getting one of the most energy efficient hot tubs in the market.
