Paradise at Home with an Outdoor Jaccuzi
A good outdoor jacuzzi can easily easily turn your patio and garden or deck into a spa-like retreat, a passionate destination or a relaxing place to enable you to be at ease at the end of the day.
High-quality jacuzzis can even boost the overall price of your home, which might be an advantage if you plan to sell the estate someday. With so many different types of hot tubs on the market it can be difficult to decide which one is the best hot tub to choose. Use this guide to better understand the benefits, features, maintenance and prices of different jacuzzi hot tubs.
Wood Fired Hot Tubs
If you need a permanent jacuzzi that appears rustic and does not require a lot of maintenance then a great option for you might be one of the wood fired spas that are available..
Instead of using electricity or gas, these jacuzzi spas use a wood burning heating system to heat the water in the spa. These kinds of tubs might be quite heavy, but they need not require any electrical wiring or plumbing being that they are standalone items that may be positioned anyplace.
In addition, wood fired jacuzzis in general cost significantly less as compared to traditional models, and regular prices could be well under $2,000 depending on the size you choose.
Portable & Inflatable Hot Tubs
If you want to install a hot tub then remove it in the winter season, or if perhaps you like to travel with a hot tub, a small inflatable version might be best.
So long as you have a smooth surface, it is possible to install it alone within an hour. These jacuzzis are also the most affordable, and they could cost as little as $400 for the plain types.
Traditional Jacuzzi Materials
The first two types of spas are wonderful options but perhaps you are looking for a more traditional acrylic or fiberglass type of hot tub. Seating in these types is comfortable, and cleaning is very effortless due to the flat, smooth surface of these options.
These are the styles you are probably used to seeing and the type that would add the most value to your home. However, they are also going to be the most expensive as far as initial cost and the cost of installation.
Of course the added cost does come with some benefits, the more traditional styles of hot tubs can come with some very cool accessories such as stereo and TV systems and mood lighting.
Set up Area
If you already have a deck or patio that can support a hot tub then your installation costs may be minimal, however if you need something build to place your spa on then the price can go up immensely.
Additionally, acrylic or fiberglass permanent hot tubs are most likely going to require added electrical and plumbing expenses. Wood Fire hot tubs cost much less for set up and really only need a flat area to be set up on while inflatable hot tubs will not require anything but a flat piece of ground,a standard 110v electrical outlet and a water hose.
