If the only hot tubs you’ve looked at have been sold by retailers, you may have come away with a case of sticker shock. However, if you purchase your hot tub from a manufacturer, those prices start to go down. Here’s a great place to start when looking for how much hot tubs cost.
The general pricing parameters of hot tubs sold by a manufacturer:
- 110V spas: $1,000 to $5,000
- 220V spas: $3,000 to $7,000
- Swim spas: $7,500 to $10,000
Let’s look a little deeper into hot tub prices.
General Hot Tub Pricing – How much a hot tub costs!
Hot tubs sold by manufacturers typically fall into a few general categories based on their voltage and capabilities.
|110V Spas||220V Spas||Swim Spas|
|Price range||$2,000 – $5,000||$3,000 – $7,000||$7,500 – $10,000|
Spas that require only 110 Volts of electricity are known as 110V spas. Although they don’t have as much power as 220V spas, they still offer a luxurious spa experience, massaging jets and many of the same premium features. These hot tubs are typically the most affordable but sometimes come with less amenities than their larger 220V counterparts.
They’re also advantageous in that they’re much easier to install than 220V spas — no additional electrical work is required, just a normal outlet.
Price: These types of spas generally run from about $2,000 to $5,000.
Spas that require 220 Volts of electricity, known as 220V spas, use twice as much power as their 110V counterparts. This means that they can better retain heat, offer more powerful jets and run a variety of additional features without struggling, such as MP3 audio systems, waterfalls or TVs.
However, they usually require additional electrical work prior to installation, and thus may take longer to install than a 110V spa.
Price: These types of spas generally run from about $3,000 to$7,000.
