Energy Efficient Hot Tubs

You are probably looking to buy a Hot Tub for it's therapeutic benefits, the health and wellness advantages it will offer as well as it providing a great place to relax and hang out with friends and family. The last thing you need to worry about while you soak in your new Hot Tub is how much it is costing you to operate it.

As the world's largest manufacturer of Hot Tubs, Sundance Spas have crafted energy-efficient Hot Tubs that don’t compromise on performance. Each and every model is created with insightful ways to boost efficiency and showcase specialized Hydrotherapy seats with a variety of massage options that cost less than a dollar a day to operate!

Sundance Spas is an environmentally conscious company whose Hot Tubs are built in the eco-friendliest Hot Tub manufacturing plant in the world, with a commitment to sustainability and using recycled materials when at all possible. All Sundance Hot Tubs meet or exceed CEC (California Energy Commission) requirements, which are the gold standard for energy efficiency in Hot Tubs.

After construction is complete, all Sundance Hot Tubs are filled and run in the Sundance Hot Tubs Energy Efficiency Chamber, which is CEC Certified and routinely calibrated and verified by an independent third party. This chamber gives Sundance the ability to alter the ambient temperature to ensure that all Sundance Hot Tubs are energy efficient in many outdoor environments. Before they are released for shipping, all Sundance Hot Tubs are run at -40 Degrees to ensure they are able to handle anything a harsh Canadian winter can throw at it. 

Consider these built-in Eco-Friendly features that make Sundance Hot Tubs the most energy efficient in the world:

Rigid-Bond Construction

Sundance Hot Tubs Exclusive 3-layer Rigid Bond™ construction adds durability, high performance, and superior heat retention capabilities to all Sundance Hot Tubs.

A proprietary blend of polyester resins makes Sundance Spa Hot Tub shells 8 times stronger than ordinary fiber-glass-laminated shells.

If you are comparing Hot Tub brands, it is important to look at the way the Spa Shell is put together. Rugged durability, superior performance and extreme energy efficiency are three areas where Sundance Hot Tubs Rigid Bond ™ Construction beats all other Hot Tubs. Rigid Bond provides excellent insulation, and thus conserves energy and reduces running costs by helping to maintain water temperatures and preventing heat loss.

Full-Foam Insulation

Sundance Spas use two types of polyurethane foam to provide full-foam insulation, completely filling the compartment between the Rigid Bond shell and the SunStrong Synthetic Skirt. Full-foam insulation is vastly superior to the partial-foam system used in some budget Hot Tubs. Full-foam provides excellent heat retention and blocks out the cold air from outside. This type of insulation also reduces the risk of leaking jets by securely holding the plumbing in place and absorbing any pressure and vibrations created by the pumps. The use of both open and closed cell foam (high and low density) maximizes energy efficiency as it is able to expand and contract with fluctuating temperatures without letting heat escape from the Hot Tubs water, protecting your Hot Tubs plumbing from the elements and ensuring many years of care-free ownership!

Titanium Coil Heater

SentrySmart Heaters, with a titanium coil element are standard on all 880 & 980 Series Hot Tubs. This patented heater heats the water directly, significantly increasing thermal efficiency and energy savings. 100% of the heat produced by the SentrySmart Heater is transferred immediately to the Hot Tubs water. The titanium coil protects the heater from corrosion or failure, and carries an unconditional 5-year warranty.

Energy Efficient Jet Pumps

Secure Harness Plumbing, quality jets, and optimum flow control are more important than horsepower when it comes to both jet performance and energy efficiency. A lower horsepower pump in an efficient Hot Tub will produce just as much jet power as a higher horsepower pump in an inefficient Hot Tub.

Many other manufacturers use oversized, high horsepower pumps, which only serve to increase your power usage and send your Hydro bill sky rocketing! Sundance Hot Tubs use a cost effective system, with efficient pumps that deliver the perfect hydro-massage experience for as little electrical cost as possible.

Dynamic Flow™ Circulation Pumps, standard equipment on all Select, 780, 880 & 980 models, also add to Sundance's impressive range of energy efficient features. Dynamic Flow Circulation Pumps moves seven times more water per minute than typical Circulation Pumps, at virtually the same energy cost!

Also consider the following energy efficient features of Sundance Hot Tubs:

EcoWrap - Optional on 780,880 Series. Standard on Select Series. achieves up to 25% energy usage reduction, protects from moisture and mold, and reduces operating noise.

Synthetic Skirting & Base -protects the Hot Tub from the elements.

SunStrong Insulating Covers - Prevents heat loss from the surface of the water.

iTouch Controls - Enables you to control the filtration and heating cycles for maximum energy efficiency.

LED Lighting - Consumes up to 7.5% of the energy used by an equivalent incandescent lighting system.

MicroClean Water Filtration Systems - The most efficient water filtration system in the industry.
