Spas: How To Get The Right One For Your Home

Thursday, September 19, 2013

Spas are a luxury that every Australian home should have. Allowing you to relax in the comfort of your own home, spas can really help to enhance your life. While they can be expensive to install, the initial cost is outweighed by the long term cost savings.

If you were to go to a spa you would end up paying hundreds of dollars a time, so with a home spa you get a lot of the benefits for just a fraction of the cost.  While a visit to the spa may be a coveted luxury to unwind and escape daily stresses, what beats having a home spa to be frequented as and when you wish?

What type of spa do you need?

On your search for the perfect spa, you’ll find there are a number of options available. You need to first think about whether you want a standard or a swim spa; this will largely depend upon the size of your home/garden and your budget.

If you have a large space available and money is no object, a swim spa could be the perfect choice. Providing you with relaxation and the choice to exercise in the spa, this type is suitable for homes that don’t have a pool.

Although standard spas don’t have enough room for you to swim around in, they are the most popular choice available. Whichever type of spa you choose, there are many different designs and shapes to choose from.

Choosing spa features

Another thing you need to give a lot of consideration to is the features you’d like the spa to have. Just some of the main features you can benefit from include cup holders, coloured LED lighting, pop up TVs and built in iPod docks. The very latest spas come with impressive features but of course the more features you select from the more expensive it will be.

If money is no object and you’d like to simulate a professional luxury spa, then why not go the extra mile and customise your spa to your own taste and need.

Minimise heating costs

It doesn’t matter which type of spa you choose, you need to think about heating costs, so choose a company that supplies energy reduction features. Hybrid heat pump technology is an important feature to look out for which can reduce the heating costs by an impressive 73%.   Meaning in the long run the costs of maintaining the spa need not be as extortionate as you first thought.

The most important thing you need to look at when choosing a spa is quality, as you're paying a lot of money to have it installed. You need to ensure it will last you for many years to come, so always buy from a well-known and respected company.

Having the spa repaired could cost a fortune if anything were to go wrong - this means it would be worth getting insurance and a guarantee.
