Energy Efficient Hot Tubs - Sundance Spas
You are here: Home > Our Difference > Energy Efficiency


High performance without high running costs

We understand that energy efficiency is more important than ever before so every hot tub manufactured by Sundance Spas is created to run efficiently and retain as much heat as possible whilst in operation.

Our high-performance hot tubs are built with components that maintain thermal energy whilst keeping the water cleaner for longer. Unlike other hot tub manufacturers that place insulation either inside the cabinet or along the floor (known as partially insulted hot tubs), each and every Sundance Spa is fully insulated with foam insulation along the shell, the floor and inside the cabinet. This makes them some of the most energy efficient hot tubs you can buy.

Heat retention is provided by Rigid Bond shell and enhanced by the 1.5 pound density foam core and polyurethane foam insulation. The combination of these aspects provides unrivalled heat retention and ensures maximum energy efficiency.

100% of the heat produced by the titanium coil heaters goes directly into the water, and it is so robust that it comes with an unconditional five year warranty so you can be sure that there will be no issues.

If you’re looking for a hot tub that provides the best contemporary facilities as well energy efficiency, contact your nearest Sundance Spas hot tub dealer.

SunStrong Cover

The cover has a premium design featuring authentic Sunbrella™ material that lasts twice as long as traditional vinyl.  The inner core features 2lb foam density and heat seal gasket to provide energy saving by minimising heat and moisture loss.  It’s available for the following models: Optima, Cameo, Hamilton, Chelsee, Hartford, Victoria and Constance.

EcoWrap™ for the 880 Series Spas

This factory installed option is ideal for cold weather climates. The insulation blanket achieves up to 25% energy usage reduction, protects from moisture and mould, and reduces operating noise.

Titanium Coil Heater

The heater on selected models features a titanium coil that directly heats the water, significantly increasing efficiency and cost savings as 100% of the heat produced is transferred immediately to the water. The titanium coil protects the heater from corrosion or failure, and comes with a 5-year warranty for complete peace of mind.

Jet Pumps

Efficient plumbing, quality jets, and optimum flow control are more important than horsepower. A lower horsepower pump in an efficient spa will produce just as much jet power as a higher horsepower pump in an inefficient spa. Many other manufacturers use oversized, high horsepower pumps. Sundance Spas has built a cost effective system, using efficient pumps to deliver the perfect hydrotherapeutic experience.


Reduced chemical usage by up to 50% and less maintenance are benefits of the exclusive Clearray UV-C water purification system. The Clearray system fitted on all Sundance Spas as standard and uses a natural part of the electromagnetic energy spectrum generated by the sun, to disinfect water. The UV-C light effectively modifies the DNA of waterborne pathogens to stop their reproduction without the introduction of chemicals, gases and by-products to the water.

i-Touch Controls

Programmable for maximum energy efficiency, the easy-to-use iTouch control panels on 880 and 780 Series spas allow for accurate programming of filtration cycles, temperature control and Integrated Aqua-Terrace and Foot-well Lighting controls. The energy efficient microprocessors continuously check all spa functions, and the lock-out function allows for the protection of your own personalised settings. On the 880 Series models, the controls maintain your settings in the event of a power outage.

Insulating Cover

The marine-grade vinyl covers features high-density, 1.5 lb foam for maximum heat retention. The cover locks into place, forming a protective seal to keep heat in and weather out. The cover not only provides for an energy efficient spa, it also helps the spa water stay clean longer, reducing maintenance costs.

Rigid Bond™ Construction and Full-Foam Insulation for Energy Efficient Hot Tubs

3-layer Rigid Bond construction adds superior strength and thermal retention qualities. Sundance Spas are unique as each hot tub shell is layered with vinylester, polyester resins and a proprietary laminate Full-foam insulation with two different types of foam completely fills the compartment between the shell and the skirt. Rigid Bond and foam insulation conserve energy and reduce heating costs by maintaining water temperatures longer.

Full-Foam Insulation

Overall foam conserves heat and supports spa plumbing. The high-density, heat-resistant foam surrounds the equipment bay whereas lighter foam insulates elsewhere for an energy efficient hot tub.

LED Lighting

The LED lighting in each Sundance Spas hot tub consumes up to 7.5% of the energy used by an equivalent incandescent lighting system, allowing you to make considerable cost savings.
