Constructing a self-supporting shell allows Arctic Spas to insulate differently than everyone else - the same as we insulate our homes
In our homes we insulate the exterior walls, the floors and most importantly the attics of our homes and we tuck everything important to us within this insulated envelope
In an Arctic spa, ambient heat from the pump penetrates the spa shell and heats the water. In winter this heat returns to the pump area in the event of a power loss thus creating the FreeHeat System With Heat Lock.
Arctic has always believed that insulation below the water surface is of small value if the areas above and directly to the sides of the water are not adequately insulated (seriously, doesn’t heat rise?)
The “attic” of Arctic's design is its Mylovac cover, which at 5” of thickness and featuring a full-length baffle is capable of retaining even more of your energy dollars.
High density polyurethane foam is applied to the cabinet walls and lip underside to a thickness that stops heat loss
Arctic finishes off this insulation envelope with the same foam applied into its floor systems. Then, we place all our equipment inside this cocoon, creating a perfect, stable Heat Lock operating environment.
What About Full Foam Hot Tubs?
Because there is insulation that fills the cabinet and is applied to the shell, heat cannot circulate and transfer to the water in a full foam hot tub. As a result, the heat cannot be recycled and they are not as efficient.
Insulation on Shell = Energy and heat is wasted because it cannot transfer through the shell to the water
Full Cabinet Insulation = Energy and heat are wasted because the heat has nowhere to go except to be vented to the exterior
