Hot tubs are often viewed as a luxury – and they are a unique feature, a wonderful way to relax and great place to chill out with family and friends. However, installing a hot tub in your home is not just about adding an extra touch of blissful indulgence. There are many ways in which a hot tub is a good investment, whether you’re looking at lifestyle or physical benefits.
Why a hot tub is a good investment
Wellbeing and lifestyle
Hot tubs are relaxing but they are also beneficial. Spending time in the warm water of a hot tub each day can help to improve circulation, for example, and the jets provide effective massage for the relief of aching muscles or joint pain. A hot tub is a totally relaxing experience, which can be beneficial if you’re struggling to switch off from work or having trouble sleeping.
Family and home
There’s no doubt that a hot tub brings something to a home in many different ways. As a feature it’s an asset, both in terms of the aesthetic appeal and the usability. It’s also somewhere to reconnect with your family and friends – no phones in the hot tub means that you can have you children’s undivided attention the entire time.
Adding value to a property
Although it depends on whether a potential buyer appreciates the benefits of a hot tub, in many situations hot tubs will add value to a property. This will be contingent on a number of different factors, such as the design and quality of the hot tub, the installation and position and how it has been maintained.
Friends and fun
If you’re the only person in the neighbourhood with a hot tub then expect to become instantly more popular when you have one installed! Hot tubs are super sociable and can be ideal places to host parties and gatherings that are informal and fun. They are a great investment for anyone looking for a more vibrant and interesting social life.
Factors that can affect your investment
The quality of the hot tub that you buy will have a big impact on what kind of investment it turns out to be. A good quality, well designed tub with beautiful aesthetics and impressive functionality is always going to be an asset. Low maintenance will also be another factor – for example, self cleaning hot tubs might be a more suitable investment for those with busy lives than a hot tub that requires manual cleaning. Insulation and hot tub design will also have an influence over the quality of the investment. Both can impact on how energy efficient the hot tub is so that your new investment doesn’t end up costing you big in terms of electricity bills every time you want to use it.
