A hot tub is a large investment. As such, you want to make sure you purchase one with quality features, so it will stand the test of time. On this episode of The Marc and Mandy Show, Kim McCrimmon from Maax Spas shows what to look for in hot tub insulation.
Q: What’s the number one thing to look for when shopping for a hot tub?
Kim McCrimmon: It’s not TV screens, it’s not music, it’s insulation. In Canada, insulation is the number one feature anyone should be looking at when buying a hot tub. We live in a cold weather climate, and when things get cold, water can freeze. Maax Spas has innovated the world’s first engineered and patented insulation system, designed specifically for hot tubs. It’s called Northern Exposure. Why? Because it works in a cold weather climate and makes their hot tubs the most energy efficient on the market.
More hot tub shopping and buying tips to keep in mind:
- Ensure you are shopping at a trustworthy retailer. Do you diligence beforehand and search online for reviews. If it’s a small or new company and you can’t find reviews, ask the retailer for references.
- Evaluate your future costs before you purchase anything. Hot tubs are not a one time fee; consider things like energy costs, deliveries and all extras like water care products, covers, and lifters.
- Ask about delivery and installment. The last thing you want is a retailer who doesn’t deliver or won’t install the tub for you, leaving you in a tight spot.
