This patented thermal barrier technology recycles the free heat energy for more efficient heating, and lower energy costs. All four sides of the hot tub, plus the floor and cover are lined with reflective copper material to reflect radiant heat energy generated from the pumps back into the hot tub. 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 hot tub stays in the hot tub.
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 its 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.
Weather Shield Insulating Cover
Insulating and covering your hot tub is extremely important. American Whirlpool’s premium-grade insulating covers contain a unique copper lining, removable heat-sealing pillows to vent excess heat during warmer weather, and a tailored fit to keep in heat during colder weather.
The WeatherShield™ cover material withstands harsh weather while remaining light in weight. Strong stitches result in less tear-outs, and they offer superior sun and fade resistance.
Lifetime Insulation Warranty
The insulation system in your new AMERICAN WHIRLPOOL hot tub is warrantied to maintain the same insulation value it had at the time it was manufactured. The high R value, Appliance Grade™ construction will allow a technician to service the entire hot tub and bring it back to factory specifications at home.
