Can I have a BuenoSpa Hot Tub Inside My House?

Can I place a hot tub indoors, is a question that is asked about regularly. If you want to know the short answer, then it’s a “yes”, of course you could have a hot tub installed inside your home. Indoor hot tub installations have several advantages, like privacy, protection from the weather and other elements, better energy efficiency, and you could use it any time of the year. If you do decide you want to go with an indoor hot tub application then it is very important to review this list of considerations for a successful installation:

  1. Space: Space is the most important thing; you should measure before installing a new hot tub. Ensure that you have enough space indoors to accommodate a hot tub, be sure, that it fits comfortably and allows for proper ventilation and access.
  2. Access: Make sure there is adequate access to the indoor space for delivery and installation of the hot tub. Check doorways, hallways, and staircases to ensure they are wide enough to accommodate the hot tub. Unfortunately, it cannot be dismantled like the furniture, so the hot tub has to be moved in one piece.
  3. Structural Support – It is important that you consider structural support under the hot tub especially if installation is on an upper floor and not a ground floor. If it’s on a second or third story of a home then the floor structure may need to be built/reinforced in such a way that it can handle the weight of the hot tub filled with water (~4,000 lbs filled). Consult with your contractor.
  4. Ventilation: Proper ventilation is crucial when installing an indoor hot tub to prevent moisture buildup and mold growth. If you are building a new room for your hot tub, consider installing exhaust fans, dehumidifiers, or other ventilation systems to keep the air fresh and dry. You should also do these things if you want to install the new hot tub in your bathroom.
  5. Flooring: Choose flooring materials that are suitable for use around a hot tub and can withstand moisture and frequent water exposure. Options may include tile, vinyl, or sealed concrete. Prevent accidents, choose the right cover!
  6. Electrical Requirements: Ensure that your indoor space has the necessary electrical capacity to support a hot tub. Consult with a qualified electrician to determine the electrical requirements and ensure compliance with local building codes. Some plug and play hot tubs only require a 110v/15amp dedicated electrical connection while most hot tubs require a hardwired 220v/50amp electrical connection.
  7. Maintenance: Indoor hot tubs may require additional maintenance to keep the surrounding area clean and free of moisture-related issues. Yes, it requires less cleaning because, here, weather conditions do not affect cleanliness. Regular cleaning, ventilation, and monitoring of humidity levels are essential.

By addressing these considerations, you can enjoy the luxury and convenience of an indoor hot tub while creating a comfortable and inviting space for recovery and relaxation.
