Full_Foam_03_RESThe biggest misconception in hot tub construction is in the difference of opinions that hot tub and spa manufacturers have in the required amount of insulation under the hot tub shell and / or in the hollow air cavity. Can you believe that most manufacturers in our industry put little or no insulation under the shell in their hollow air cavity? Recently independent testing laboratory conclusions stated “High R-value is the single most important factor affecting hot tub and spa energy efficiency”, and “More insulation is better.” Beachcomber’s Hybrid3 Edition insulates 100% of all 4 walls with a blown-in spray foam that expands and fills every square inch of our hollow air cavity with energy saving insulation. Beachcomber has always said “would you buy a house from a contractor that says they are not going to insulate your house for whatever reason?”
