How to Enjoy Your Hot Tub in the Winter
How to enhance your hot tub experience in winter
Winter in New England can be a beautiful and magical time of year, but it can also be cold and harsh. However, with the right equipment and accessories, you can still enjoy the great outdoors and take advantage of one of the most relaxing and enjoyable activities – soaking in a hot tub. In this article, we’ll explore some of the best ways to enjoy a hot tub in winter in New England.
Choose an Energy Efficient Hot Tub
Before you even start thinking about accessories and decorations, it’s important to choose an energy-efficient hot tub. This will not only save you money on your energy bills, but it will also reduce your environmental impact. Look for hot tubs that are designed with energy-efficient components, such as insulation, pumps, and heaters. Some hot tubs even come with energy-saving modes that can be programmed to reduce energy consumption when the tub is not in use.
Bullfrog Spas feature a tough acrylic shell, durability of the parts, wood-free support structure and cabinet, top quality electronics, and the full foam insulation all mean that your Bullfrog Spa can easily perform well and last for years in essentially any climate – including a New England winter.
Invest in an Energy Efficient Hot Tub Cover
Another essential item for enjoying your hot tub in winter is an energy-efficient hot tub cover. A good cover will help keep the heat in, reducing the amount of energy needed to maintain the water temperature. Look for covers that are specifically designed for cold climates, with thick insulation and a tight-fitting seal.
Bullfrog Spas’ Patio Peformance™ cover design keeps cool air out and prevents heat from escaping. These well insulated covers are designed specifically for your Bullfrog Spa to maximize its energy efficiency. Bullfrog Spas hot tub covers feature locking clips for safely securing your spa when not in use and protecting it from wind or extreme weather.
Add Some Twinkly Lights and Other Cozy Accessories
Once you have your energy-efficient hot tub and cover in place, it’s time to make it cozy and inviting. Add some twinkly lights around the tub to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. You could also add some lanterns, or other soft lighting options to create a relaxing ambiance. Other cozy accessories might include plush towels, warm blankets, and comfortable seating.
Warm up your towels and robe
Another way to make your hot tub experience even cozier is by adding warm up towels and a fluffy robe. After getting out of the hot tub, wrap yourself in a warm towel or robe to help retain body heat and prevent shivering. You can heat up towels by placing them in a dryer or using a towel warmer, or you can even dip them in warm water before using them. And of course, a soft and fluffy robe is a must-have for any winter hot tub session. Just make sure to keep it nearby and easily accessible so you can slip it on right after getting out of the tub.
Play Your Favorite Music
Music can be a great way to enhance your hot tub experience, whether you’re relaxing solo or enjoying the tub with family and friends. Create a playlist of your favorite tunes and play them through a waterproof speaker. You could also invest in a hot tub with built-in speakers for an even more immersive experience.
Share with Family and Friends
Hot tubs are meant to be enjoyed with others, so why not invite family and friends over to share in the experience? Hosting a hot tub party can be a fun and unique way to spend a winter evening. Just make sure everyone is dressed appropriately for the weather, and consider serving warm drinks and snacks to keep everyone cozy.
Wear a Hat
It might sound silly, but wearing a hat in the hot tub can actually help keep you warm. As much as 30% of your body heat can be lost through your head, so wearing a hat can help reduce heat loss and keep you more comfortable.
Just Get Out There
Finally, the best way to enjoy a hot tub in winter in New England is simply to get out there and do it! Don’t let the cold weather stop you from enjoying one of life’s simple pleasures. With the right equipment and accessories, you can enjoy your hot tub year-round, no matter what the weather brings.
In conclusion, enjoying a hot tub in winter in New England can be a great way to relax and unwind, even in the midst of cold and snowy weather. By choosing an energy-efficient hot tub, investing in an energy-efficient cover, adding cozy accessories, playing music, inviting friends and family, wearing a hat, and just getting out there, you can create a memorable and enjoyable experience that will keep you warm and relaxed all winter long.
