At Rest and Relax, we understand how important it is to be confident when you buy something. You deserve to know what you’re spending your hard-earned money on. Especially with a larger purchase or lifetime investment such as a hot tub, you deserve the best for your dollar. Before you are make a decision about which tub to buy, create a budget or a price range based on how much it actually costs to purchase and own a hot tub.

Hot Tub Price

You can find hot tubs for sale from anywhere between $2,000 and $35,000. The incredible variety of hot tub prices can be confusing if you don’t understand the reasons why some tubs cost more than others.

The four most important differences that affect hot tub prices are:

· Jetting
· Construction quality
· Size
· Features

When shopping for a hot tub, it is helpful to create a list of things your tub must have and a separate list for things you would like it to have. Doing this allows you to decide if the little extras are worth the extra money.

As you look at the price tags for different hot tubs, the lifespan of the tub is something to think about. While a cheaper tub may cost you less up front, you can end up spending more in the long run if your tub needs replaced after only a few years. That’s why you’ll only find the highest quality hot tubs at Rest and Relax. We strive to bring you the best tubs at the best prices to ensure you get the quality you deserve at a price you’re happy about.

Delivery and Installation Charge

While there are charges you might expect for delivery and installation, there could be additional costs depending on the model of tub you choose and the location you pick for installation. For example, if you want your tub to rest on a second floor balcony, a crane is usually necessary to lift it. Some people want their tub recessed into a patio which could require additional landscaping adjustments. Regardless of where you want to put the tub, the surface it sits on needs to be sturdy. In some cases, this means you might need to reinforce your patio or pave over part of your yard.

The team members at Rest and Relax can help you better understand these costs and let you know what will be necessary to get your tub delivered and installed in a professional manner. We desire to minimize any required adjustments and unforeseen costs associated with purchasing a hot tub.

Operating Costs

As you consider your budget, you also need to consider the on-going operating costs of owning a hot tub.

Electricity is necessary to:

· Circulate the water
· Heat the tub
· Power the jets
· Turn on the lights

This means your energy bill will increase once the tub is installed.

How much of an increase you see will depend on factors such as:

· The temperature you keep the water at
· How frequently you use the tub
· The type of tub you purchase

You may also notice a fluctuation of your bill depending on the climate. Your tub will cost less to heat during the summer than in the winter. While the price of the chemicals and tools needed for cleaning and water treatment are relatively low, you still need to take that into consideration as well.

Higher quality tubs are made with superior materials and are better insulated so the tub is more energy efficient. These are all reasons why, as you look at different tubs, you should closely inspect the heaters, insulation and pumps. You should also choose a higher density cover to provide as much insulation as possible.
