Is an Outdoor Hot Tub Right for Me?

If you’ve been wondering if an outdoor or indoor hot tub is right for you, it’s good to explore the advantages of both. In the end, it boils down to what is best for your lifestyle, home and budget. Do you prefer the soothing sounds of nature? Getting some fresh air at the end of a long day? Or is your backyard not well-suited for a hot tub installation? No matter your situation, we guarantee that there is a solution for you. In this article, we’re going to take a look at the advantages of both indoor and outdoor hot tub installations.

The Advantages of an Outdoor Hot Tub

Less Expensive Delivery & Installation

Several cost benefits are associated with choosing an outdoor spa for your home. First, both delivery and installation of outdoor hot tubs are simpler to accomplish and, therefore, easier on the wallet.

Hot tubs are large, extremely heavy, and cumbersome. Preparing an area inside your home that can adequately support the weight, especially when filled with water, can prove to be a long and costly process. Arranging an area in your backyard, or simply installing the spa in-ground, can help to alleviate some of these worries.

Not to mention that you won’t have to worry about squeezing a hot tub through the front door!

Natural Drainage

Draining a hot tub outdoors is far less of a concern than with an indoor spa. A natural drainage site outside is less expensive than having to install a drain for when it comes time to change the water inside your hot tub, which should be done about three to four times a year.

No Ventilation Worries

It’s an advantage that the excess humidity created by your hot tub doesn’t produce any adverse effects to the surroundings. When indoors, adequate ventilation is required, and it may mean structural alterations are necessary. With an outdoor hot tub installation, you won’t have to worry about ventilation.

Natural Atmosphere

Being outside in nature comes with its own set of benefits, as does the therapeutic features of a hot tub. Nature is a powerful force. Listening to birds, watching the sunrise or sunset, and breathing in the fresh air can all contribute to an improved quality of life. You can even enjoy being comfortable outside in a hot tub even when it’s raining or snowing, thanks to the warmer temperature of the jet-driven water!

The Advantages of an Indoor Hot Tub

Less Maintenance Required

If you have an outdoor hot tub, it’s necessary to deal with the less appealing effects nature has on your luxury spa. Dirt, leaves, and other outdoor debris need to be removed regularly. Not to mention that various weather patterns and seasons can cause hot tub covers to experience accelerated deterioration.

By installing your hot tub indoors, you can prevent wear and tear from the uncontrollable elements, from the safety of your home.

More Privacy

You might not have the level of privacy you want if you have an outdoor hot tub. Even with a taller fence or hedges, neighbors may be able to see and hear you as you’re enjoying lively conversation with family and friends.

Added Convenience

When replacing hot tub filters, cleaning your outdoor hot tub, and giving hot tub accessories needed upkeep, it may be less convenient for you that the work must be done outdoors, perhaps in inclement weather. Spa water needs to be tested regularly, as well, and routine cleaning of the tub itself is also required.
