The ultimate hot tub insulation system.
This patent pending thermal barrier technology recycles the free heat energy for more efficient heating and lower energy costs. All four sides of the spa, plus the floor and cover are lined with reflective copper material to reflect radiant heat energy generated from the pumps back into the spa. Heat is absorbed back into the plumbing helping raise and maintain water temperature. Finally the entire exterior of the hot tub is wrapped in 3M Thinsulate™ Insulation, the same incredible material utilized in winter clothing. This three layer patent pending system ensures energy created by the spa stays in the spa.
The Northern Exposure® Insulation System features our eco-friendly BlueMAAX® insulation. Made from recycled natural fiber, it is approved by the U.S. Green Building Council. The insulation contains no chemical irritants, is treated with a borate based solution to prevent mold/mildew growth, pest infestation, and acts as a fire retardant. BlueMAAX® replaces the urethane foam in “foam filled” hot tubs. (Foam filling produces volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) which are harmful to the environment.)
The same insulation that makes an AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL® hot tub energy efficient also aids in it’s ultra quiet operation. Sound energy is trapped and deadened inside the hot tub by the insulation sound barrier. Quiet operation is essential to ensure a peaceful relaxing experience throughout the entire backyard.
AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL’s premium grade insulating covers contain a unique copper lining, removable heat sealing pillows to vent excess heat off in the summer and a tailored fit to keep the heat in when cooler. The cover also acts as an important safety barrier to the spa.
Lifetime Insulation Warranty
The insulation system in your new AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL® hot tub is warranted to maintain the same insulation value as it had at the time it was manufactured. The high R value, Appliance Grade™ construction will allow a technician to service the entire spa and bring it back to factory specifications at home.
