You need to consider a hot tub insulation system to prevent heat lost faster. Insulation should have the highest possible heat resistance since you do not want to any heat lost which tend to inefficient energy use. Therefore, proper insulation will reduce the cost of your energy.
Hot tub cover will prevent certain waste like falling leaves or dirt in your spa, the formation of any bacteria that can cause illness or diseases.

You should use an appropriate level hot tub cover. Avoid using a cover which has a foam core as these develop into waterlogged over time. Choose those that are made up of expanded polystyrene since it is the most resistant material. Make sure the level of resistant by take a look at its R-value since it indicates how high its resistance. Ideally, you should use cover with R-value greater than 15.
This is the best insulation system which placed outdoors and in a cold climate. It hovers on the water underneath and can provide the heat in when the tub isn’t used by catch the sun directly. Insulation blanket is easy to use and on a budget. You need to change your thermal blanket quickly to you see signs of wear and deterioration.
Other Insulation Systems
