Don’t Close Up Your Hot Tub Just Because It’s Winter
While most people don’t use their pools much in the winter, the colder months are a great time to use your hot tub. Many people tout the health benefits of using a hot tub, and these extend into the winter months. Furthermore, they provide a great way to get fresh air while staying warm and comfortable.
Potential health benefits associated with hot tub use include:
- Stress relief
- Pain relief
- Muscle recovery
- Improved blood flow
- Better quality sleep

Why You Should Consider Upgrading Your Hot Tub Lighting Now
When you get home from a long day of work, whether your feet are sore or you just finished your after-work run, is your hot tub area inviting? Or does it make you run back inside? In the summer, when the days are longer, you are more likely to use your hot tub during the daylight hours. However, in winter, with our shortened days, you will more likely than not be using your hot tub after it has already become dark. Improving and upgrading your hot tub lighting can make the space more welcoming and encourage you to use your hot tub more often.
More reasons to upgrade your spa or hot tub lighting this winter:
- Improve the safety of the hot tub and surrounding area
- Modernize equipment and replace broken or worn-out lighting fixtures
- Customize the hot tub’s aesthetics to be more in line with the rest of your yard
- Make the space more inviting for yourself and your guests
Another reason winter is a great time to upgrade your spa or hot tub lighting is that fewer people are beginning these projects in the winter, and it can be easier to schedule appointments when they are convenient for you.
