How to enjoy your hot tub and still save money

by Donny on December 14, 2010

There was a small period of time during my childhood that my family had a hot tub. It was one of the nicest things in the world just to be able to sit in there and relax, especially during cold winter months.

What I wouldn’t give to have another hot tub today.

Then again, hot tubs are expensive, and so are the electric bills when you use one too often, and you don’t always have the most affordable electricity bill.

However, if you have a hot tub, you can enjoy without having to worry about this too much.

I’m sure you limit the use of it in order to save money, and I just figured I’d give you a few suggestions of things to do in order to make the relaxation last longer.

·Keep the cover on it. This helps keep it clean and helps it to stay warm. This way, it will use less energy and won’t take as long to warm up when you use it.

·Turn it off when it’s not in use. I know this is common sense, and like anything else that uses electricity, keep it off when not in use. It’s as simple as that.

·Maintain and clean your filters. Keeping them clean is pretty easy, and often times you might think another day or two won’t hurt, but if a filter gets dirty or clogged, it will slow down the circulation, and waste more energy to heat up the tub.

·Don’t go higher than 102 degrees. Two or three degrees warmer might not seem like much, but it adds up over a period of time and will make a difference on your bill.

·Make a schedule or use a timer, and stick with it. This way, you’ll know about how much money you’ll pay if you use for this particular amount of time you set as long as you have a consistent energy provider.

If you don’t have a consistent provider, but are in the market for one, and you live in a deregulated area, you can shop, compare and choose the most affordable rates for you.
