The JetPak System and Full Foam Insulation Combine to Make Bullfrog Spas Incredibly Energy Efficient

 

These days most people just can’t afford to waste money. So, it’s important to know that your hot tub doesn’t have a direct debit line to your bank account. Many hot tubs out there claim to be energy efficient but may actually cost you hundreds of dollars per month on your electricity bill – a Bullfrog Spa probably costs less than $20.

 

Of course, costs always vary depending on the climate where you live, energy rates, settings and how often you use your hot tub. One thing is certain though, a Bullfrog Spa is extremely energy efficient, which will cost you less money in the long run, all the while providing better massages, true customization, American-made quality and extreme durability.

 

 

Why are Bullfrog Spas more energy efficient?

Bullfrog Spas, the most energy efficient hot tubs in their class.

 

Well, it all comes down to the fact that Bullfrog Spas are built differently than every other spa out there. Bullfrog Spas are the only hot tubs built with the patented JetPak System. JetPak Technology provides a more advanced and more efficient way to build a hot tub. The JetPak System eliminates up to 90% of the plumbing that is required to build all other spas. In addition, almost all of the plumbing utilized in the JetPak System resides inside the spa’s warm water so it recycles heat instead of losing it to the outside environment. Bullfrog combines the JetPak System with high-grade full foam insulation and insulated tight fitting hot tub covers to achieve maximum heat retention.

 

The result: A Bullfrog Spa holds heat better and requires far less electricity to maintain warm water. This makes Bullfrog Spas the most energy efficient hot tubs on the planet!

 

In energy efficiency stats compiled by the California Energy Commission, Bullfrog Spas either lead or are top 4 (often only behind other Bullfrog Spas models) on the list for every category in which we have a spa model. And, keep in mind, we didn’t make any modifications to our normal production spas for these tests.

    Am interested in a hot tub with an enclosure. Do you also do the installation of the Hottubs and enclosures? If not, can you recommend someone? Would like to get estimates before going for financing.
    Thank for any help you can provide…

      Rich,

      Thanks for the inquiry.

      An Authorized Bullfrog Spas dealer in your area should be able to help recommend an enclosure and, yes, install the spa. Here’s the link to our dealer locator: http://bullfrogspas.com/pages/locate-dealer.asp

      Simply type in your zip code and you’ll find the nearest Authorized Dealer.

    Bullfrog combines the JetPak System with high-grade full foam insulation

    I have a new Bullfrog R5L and don’t see any insulation underneath at all. Where, specifically, is it insulated?

    • Jake Ricks | Feb 12, 2014 at 1:59 pm

      The entire area underneath the spa shell, minus the equipment compartment area, is actually filled with full foam insulation. Perhaps you’re viewing just the equipment compartment? In addition to the full foam insulation, the heat from the equipment is also used to help heat the spa.

        You are correct sir, equipment compartment…

        Thanks

    I have owned my bullfrog r7 for a month now, using it 1 hour per day with a temp of 102 and water cycles 4 hours a day. I was suprised to get my electric billbin sacramento, ca. With only an 18 dollar increase in my electric bill. Good job bullfrog!

    […] up to temperature. In fact, in recent years Bullfrog Spas — which we specialize in — really beefed up their hot tub and hot tub covers insulation, which brought costs down from about $100 per month to about $25.00 today, so it’s no longer a […]

    We purchased the R6 Bullfrog spa back in Oct of 2015 and it was installed on 2 Nov. The spa has been great except for the electric bill. Our first month was $65 higher than last year and this past month was $80 higher. We have adjusted the settings (REST) and it is only set to 101 degrees. The salesman who we bought the spa from has the same model and says he only pays around $12-15 per month. What would cause this disparity? We feel deceived and can’t afford this type of energy consumption. What options do we have?

    • Bullfrog Spas | Jan 18, 2016 at 9:46 am

      Bryan, thanks for writing in. Sorry to hear about this. It is certainly not typical. There are several factors that can affect your energy consumption including average outside air temperature, usage patterns, filtration and other mode settings, cover fit, environmental exposure at your installation site (regular exposure to wind can be taxing on energy), and several more factors. For example, using your spa frequently with pumps on high for extended periods in cold temps and wind will obviously use more energy than normal. While with summer temperatures you may use hardly any additional energy. The best course of action is probably to work with your dealership to try to identify any unusual spa settings, cover fit issues, or installation site problems.
