A hot tub cover (otherwise called a spa cover) is the most vital element when it comes to maintaining a low-cost, energy efficient system.
As many of us will recall from early science class lessons, heat rises. Therefore, in an effort to keep the water and heat inside the hot tub itself, owners are urged to invest in a high-quality, heat-retaining cover.
When shopping for a first-time or replacement hot tub cover, it is essential to compare the insulating values, hinge seals and c-channel reinforcements. All these components, where possible, should be upgraded – to ensure your hot tub operates at the optimal energy-efficient level.
After all – you would not build an energy efficient home and not bother to install a front door. The same principle should apply to hot tub ownership!
