In Spa Specialist spas, the air pump is located inside the
area, where the heat from the jet pumps is warming the air. You can
use the blower and not lose any heat. The air coming in is warmer than
After a few minutes the air temperature inside the cabinet will go down. Of course, after about twenty minutes, the air will turn cold, but by then you are long done with the air therapy.
I use my air blower all of the time. I love the way it feels on my skin; invigorating! Just great!
In a full foam spa, the only place to locate the air pump is in the
equipment area, which is vented to the outside. Some are located in the
foam, and draw air from the equipment compartment through a tube.
When full foam spas run their air blower it destroys what little efficiency they have. All of the air is drawn in from the outside of the spa, which is always colder than the water temperature .
During the winter, these poor designs can reduce the water temperature by 1 degree every five minutes. The spa heater is now unable to keep the temperature up. All of those charts showing the "average use" of electricity are worthless with the blower running. This is why they "sell against air injectors". They don't work on their spas.
If you want to keep your electric bill down in a full foam spa , you must remember to close the air controls every time you leave the spa. This is written in their owner's manual. I don't think very many people remember to do this because it is often not brought up by the sales people, (just like freeze vulnerability) .
These poorly designed spas draw cold air into the water any time the air controls are open. This cools down the spa a great deal, causing the heater to work that much more and your electric bill to be even higher! (It is probably a good idea to leave them off all the time!)
WARM AIR IS GOOD!
As you may know, the best water occurring naturally on earth is at the bottom of a water fall, because it is full of oxygen.
People who have fish tanks are constantly pumping air into the tanks to freshen the water.
In a spa, the water is much more pleasant if you leave the air controls on. It oxygenates the water. This makes the water smell really great.
Since the air controls in our spas are in the heated cabinet of the spa, and are at the top where the air is the warmest, you can leave them on all of the time. I do, and there is no measurable increase or decrease in my electric bill.
The water is great!! My friends compliment me on the water.
THE BLOWER TOO!!
One of the major benefits along with the wonderful, marvelous therapy and just plain good feeling of the air jet system is the air itself.
Remember AIR IS GOOD FOR WATER!
When You Operate the air blower you are LETTING IN A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF AIR TO OXYGENATE AND FRESHEN the water.
