Energy Efficient Hot Tub Insulation

16 February 2022

With energy prices rising, a hot tub with premium insulation has never been so important. In 2021, the Platinum Premium Shield insulation was introduced, an innovative energy efficient insulation.

Award-winning

The latest Platinum Spas innovation was commended at the UK Pool & Spa Awards 2021, being awarded gold status in the Hot Tub Energy Efficiency Eco Award category.

The award-winning insulation features on the luxurious Platinum Spas premium range and swim spas. This combines five different types of insulation to retain the heat within the cabinet by the Superior Heatlock Insulation Process (SHIP). The end user will notice a considerable difference in the heat retained in the hot tub as well as a reduction in energy costs. This is incredibly important with the recent rise in energy costs and the need for more sustainable practices in general.

Innovation at the forefront

With innovation being one the Platinum Spas brand values, the team has a core focus on improving its products based on customer feedback and insight.

Rob Carlin, Managing Director, said: “There is a commitment to improving the energy efficiency of our products. For inspiration, we have looked at how modern homes are better insulated to help retain heat and therefore reduce the amount of energy being used.

“With running costs and energy efficiency at the forefront of a customer’s mind when buying a hot tub, it is vital to know that a luxury purchase such as a hot tub is not going to cost the earth to run.”

Platinum Premium Shield explained 

The insulation combines five different types of insulation to retain the heat within the cabinet by the Superior Heatlock Insulation Process (SHIP), which includes:

  • The base has a reflective foil wrap
  • The cabinet has thick foil coated insulation panels fitting into it
  • The shell has several layers of ultra-efficient spray foam
  • The hot tub has an additional 360-degree wall of reflective foil wrapped around the steel structure locking in heat
  • And the hot tub has a well-insulated cover

By reflecting the heat back inwards, the wasted heat created by the pumps and other components can be recycled. The heat is then used to help maintain the temperature through heat transfer via the vast amount of plumbing, this assists with the overall running costs

The Platinum Spas brand continues to innovate every year with new models being introduced to ensure they offer the very best in technology and design, with a wide choice to suit every budget.
