Have you ever wondered what the electrical cost to run a hot tub is?
To help consumers make informed decisions, Hot Spring Spas offers a Monthly Operating Cost Estimator with sample temperatures and electrical costs. Click Here to estimate your monthly costs. These figures were determined based on a hot tub set at 102 degrees and used 6 times a week. In this scenario, the jets were kept on for 15 minutes and off for 15 minutes.
For instance, a Hot Spring Envoy Highlife Spa will cost approximately $15.53 to operate if the climate is that of Las Vegas, NV, with an estimated temperature of 70 degrees and energy cost of $0.12 per Kilowatt hour. If you choose a Jetsetter Highlife, it would cost about $13.74, using those conditions. The Jetsetter is a smaller hot tub, however, so there is less water to heat and less surface area for heat evaporation.
