    The Importance of Insulation in a Hot Tub’s Construction

    As the permanent chill of winter weather creeps in, and you’re considering purchasing a hot tub, the cost of operation may be an understandable concern for you. At Beachcomber, we pride ourselves in our hot tubs being among the most energy efficient in the world! Energy optimization, and its resulting savings to you as an owner, is built into the construction of every tub we produce.

    The key to minimizing heat loss and maximizing efficiency is hot tub insulation

    Fully insulating the interior cavity of the hot tub is something that Beachcomber Hot Tubs continues to lead the industry in. Our patented Hybrid4™ technology allowed us to move the interior equipment outside the hot tub cavity and under the step instead. This in turn enabled us to insulate all four walls of the hot tub, blocking moisture and heat from escaping the shell on all sides. Just like the walls of your home, insulation is needed to prevent the transfer of heat out of the vessel. The insulation we use is a specially formulated foam product made right in our British Columbia factory, that is blown in and expands to fill every crevice of the cavity. After it dries, it cures and hardens, making the hot tub into an integrated unit to keep the heat inside. Independent reports also support Beachcomber’s Eco-design method of this Cavity Fill insulation by stating that “For purposes of efficiency, more insulation is better.” This is something you’ll see across all Beachcomber models and price points.

    Along with saving you money on energy costs, the insulation allows the interior equipment to run at a consistent temperature, which ensures long equipment life, and maintains your desired water temperature. The foundation also plays an important role in the efficiency of your hot tub purchase. Look for a model that has a sturdy foundation, like the PERMA-SEAL™ in all Beachcomber models, that stops the internal insulated foam cavity from absorbing moisture and heat.
