Owning a hot tub is relaxing, so why should the buying process be any different? That’s why our team of experts here at Jacuzzi Hot Tubs of Calgary have put our heads together and created a list with some of the best tips to help you find the best hot tub for your lifestyle.
The first step we always recommend to potential hot tub buyers is to download our free and online buyers guide. This guide will walk you through many of the areas that should be covered when one is interested in a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub. From places to install and ideas to help you get inspired, to hydrotherapy, massage, and everything else in between.
Think about the money
Money is the most important factor in every major purchase. Setting a budget is a great way to keep yourself on track once you begin shopping. Your budget should include an ideal price and a top-end price. Your ideal price is the amount you would prefer to spend while the top-end price is the absolute maximum you can afford.
With a budget in place, you have a good guideline on what spas you can consider and what would be out of reach. Only perusing hot tubs that fall within your price range will help you avoid disappointment. After all, there’s no point in looking at $16,000 spas when you’ve capped your budget at $12,000.
Space vs. spa
If you have a large yard or patio, space will have no impact on what unit you purchase. If, however, you have a small yard or patio, or a specific area where your spa needs to go, that can limit the selection available to you.
The first thing you need to do is to measure your space. Take your recorded measurements with you when you start shopping. Your local dealership will be able to show you which spas will work in your space and which models to avoid.
Accommodating your family
If, however, you are not working with a tight space, the size of your tub should be determined by how many people will be using it. If you plan to do a lot of entertaining or if you have a big family, a six-seat spa or larger will suit you best while smaller families or couples planning to use their spa with a few friends will be well-served by a four-person model.
If your shopping just for yourself or as a couple, why not consider a two-person unit? The smaller units are cheaper than their larger counterparts and that lower cost may enable you to upgrade to a model with more bells and whistles.
Options and financing
As technology improves, so do the options on many hot tub models. Maybe you’ve decided you can’t live without a waterfall or interior illumination. Or, maybe you’re dying for a Jacuzzi® Hot Tub with a BLUEWAVE® Spa Stereo System. Of course, the more options you choose, the higher the price point may be. Be sure to cover these options and upgrades with the spa specialist assisting you.
Not to worry. Financing options often enable customers to choose a hot tub that they would not be able to buy outright. Whether you choose a mid-level spa or a luxury hot tub, financing packages are affordable, ranging from $100 to $200-plus a month.
