World’s Most Efficient Hot Tubs

by | Nov 25, 2021

We all share this planet, and at Arctic Spas®, we acknowledge our responsibility to create an environmentally friendly hot tub so you can relax in peace. The commitment to decrease the environmental footprint of our hot tubs is an ongoing journey we are committed to exploring.


Reducing The Impact

At the heart of our strategy is the reduced environmental impact of each of our hot tubs as it operates year after year in your backyard. We do this by making sure your hot tub runs efficiently, so you can save yourself economically while looking after our planet.


Committed To Communities

At Arctic Spas®, we begin by committing ourselves to our communities where we maintain
facilities. Our World Headquarters in Thorsby, Alberta, Canada, is the primary employer in the area. We contribute to the programs that foster healthy, active, and environmentally sound lifestyles within the community.

Our operations in Washington State, USA, strive to do the same, participating in many events, festivals, and programs that put the environment first. Our commitment to the environment extends into your backyard. Keep reading to learn more about how we manufacture our products to be as environmentally sound as possible.


Maintaining The Environment

To show our commitment to maintaining the environment, we always ensure we are PEFC certified. PEFC is the Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification, a leading global, national forest certification system. In addition, the PEFC promotes sustainable forest management through its non-profit, non-governmental organization that ensures companies demonstrate responsible practices. Practices like this ensure we always stay on the right path when manufacturing our hot tubs sustainably.

Energy preservation begins with manufacturing your hot tub. Proper insulation directly affects your daily operating costs and energy consumption. It costs more to keep your tub at the ideal temperature in a poorly insulated environment. Arctic Spas® uses specially engineered techniques to ensure the ultimate energy conservation while running your hot tub.

Patented Technology

To do this, we use our own patented technology called our FreeHeat™ Perimeter insulation System. Our specially engineered system uses insulation strategically to save you money. Our process is done by strategically placing insulation all around the tub but still leaving room for the ambient heat produced from the motor to be reused.

This ambient heat is collected from the pump and penetrates the spa shell to help heat the water. This system will even protect your pumps from the cold in the winter, especially in a power outage.

We took this innovative insulation further by spraying high-density polyurethane foam applied to the cabinet walls and our floor systems. We wanted to design the ultimate cover with 5” of thickness to complete the entire insulation system to create an even more efficient design. The Mylovac cover features a full-length baffle that is capable of retaining even more of your energy and your money.

We always make sure any new technology we introduce is tested and approved by the energy commission government. This approval has us send in models to ensure our hot tubs are always within the ideal energy regulations. In addition, to comply with Canada’s energy efficiency act, we always make sure our products meet these energy efficiency standards and submit our products for regulatory approval.

Another way to lessen your environmental impact is through your hot tub maintenance. Frequently, other hot tub brands will require you to drain and fill your tub regularly to maintain the cleanliness of your spa. Unfortunately, this process results in significant water waste and more money in bills for homeowners.

Automated Water Care

To prevent dumping all your money down the drain, Arctic Spas® has created the ultimate automated water care system, Spa Boy®. This system accurately and effortlessly helps to maintain perfect clear and safe spa water for you.

This technology uses medical-grade sensors to constantly analyze key water cleanliness parameters and precisely control the output of your integrated saltwater system. This water care system allows you to keep your hot tub water for longer and not have to worry about draining and filling your hot tub as often. Our Spa Boy®’s automated water care system is the perfect way to encourage less water use, saving the environment and money.
