Summer is in full force, and that can bring brutally hot temperatures with hit. Heat and humidity combined together make most of us run for the pool or the air conditioning.
Yet, we often hear the same question from many people, “Can you use a hot tub in the summer?”
The truth is, there are many ways to use your home spa in warm weather, each more pleasant than the last. Check out this list from our friends at Hot Spring spas, including how to chill-out with CoolZone™ from Hot Spring®.
Using Your Hot Tub in Summer
Summertime means many different things to many different people, but it all depends upon where you live.
Summer is different in Vermont compared to Los Angeles, and it’s certainly different when you compare Alaska and Arkansas where it’s hot all summer.
The best soaks are usually in the cool morning hours or late into the evening when the sun goes down.
Morning and Evening Soaks
In many places, dawn, twilight, and dusk are ideal times to relax sore muscles in your hot tub’s soothing water. What’s more, you can always turn down the temperature of your water so it’s more refreshing on warmer evenings.
Hot-tubbing in the cool early morning hours gives you a chance to relax, find balance and meet your day head on.
A late evening soak can help you soak your stress away and relieve aching muscles.
Rainy Day Soaks
Sometime Mother Nature gives us a break in the form of a rain storm, and the heat wave breaks, if just for a little while.
Enjoy the cool temperatures right after the rain to take a soak in your hot tub. Or, if there is no threat of thunder or lightning, a hot tub soak in the rain can be inviting.
Host a Spa Party
Host a weekend barbecue and spa party. Turn on your hot tub’s entertainment system and spice up the party.
Bluetooth® technology allows you to connect your home entertainment system with your spa’s remote controls. You can change the music, turn up the volume, and more while you’re flipping burgers.
Entrancing spa waterfalls and fountains add ambiance, and multicolored LED lighting takes your party into the night, setting the stage for fun hot tub games or stargazing.
Chill-Out With CoolZone™ Technology
There are many ways to enjoy your spa in the warm summer months, but the most refreshing is with an enhanced temperature control system, such CoolZone from Hot Spring®.
CoolZone can lower the temperature of spa water all the way down to a brisk 60 degrees Fahrenheit and heat it back up again to enjoy in cooler evening temperatures when you get them.
CoolZone can shape your perfect summer day:
- Wake up with a warm soak to gain focus and energy.
- Take care of business as the morning gets going.
- Enjoy a break during the heat of the day by stepping into your crisp, refreshing “cool tub.”
- Raise the hot tub temperature after dinner to stave off the evening chill with friends and family.
In addition to all the fun you can have hot-tubbing during the summer season, you’ll enjoy a host of health benefits.
After exerting your muscles in the yard or at the gym, your hot tub can help reduce soreness and aching.
The spa water releases tension, and the the buoyancy of the water and massaging effect of powerful jets make you feel great. Plus, enjoying your hot tub with friends and family can help improve social connections and your overall quality of life. Don’t forget that a 20-minute soak before bed can help improve your sleep.
Owning a hot tub is a joyful experience, no matter what the season. Your spa routine can help you live a happier, more relaxed life!
