We all know and love hot tubs. With their hot water, jets and steam, they’re perfect for relaxation and warmth.
But what if you want to expand your spa experience to include lukewarm, cool and even cold temperatures?
That’s where AnyTemp® spa technology comes in. Here, we’ll explain what AnyTemp technology is, how it works and how it can benefit you.
The Basics of AnyTemp
AnyTemp is a patented technology from Atera Spas. It can be adjusted to actively heat or cool its water to a range of temperatures from 62 degrees to 104 degrees. Users can enjoy water that’s:
Unlike any other spa technology on the market, AnyTemp technology’s powerful heating and cooling system allows users to enjoy the exact temperature they want. That’s true whether they’re indoors or outdoors in any climate.
For example, you could set your spa to a cold temperature for a refreshing cool pool of water in the middle of the summer (click here to learn more about using your spa in the summer).
Or, you could set your spa to a warm temperature if you’re looking for a relaxing soak but don’t want to get too hot.
Plus, AnyTemp spas are far more energy efficient than a swimming pool, or even a traditional hot tub. That’s because they:
- Are equipped with insulation to maintain your ideal temperature.
- Only need to operate all therapy pumps for up to ten minutes per day.
- Can continue to filter and circulate without heating or cooling, meaning you don’t need to waste energy when you’re out of town.
All things considered, if you have your AnyTemp spa set to your preferred temperature 24/7, its monthly energy cost will likely come out to just $25-40 per month.
How AnyTemp Works
While any hot tub can have its temperature set to the coolest setting, only AnyTemp spa technology uses a 6,000 BTU water cooler to significantly lower the temperature.
The proprietary refrigeration system used in AnyTemp technology is:
- Hidden within the body of the spa.
- Designed to prevent refrigerant leaks.
- Energy efficient.
- Capable of lowering the water temperature by 3 degrees each hour.
However, AnyTemp spa technology isn’t limited to cooling. It also features an energy-efficient 4.3-kilowatt heater that increases the water temperature by 3 degrees each hour.
This means that if you have your AnyTemp spa set to a cool 75 degrees during the day, you could heat it up to a toastier 85 degrees for nighttime in just over three hours.
To control their spa’s cooler and heater, users need only set their desired temperature on the proprietary Simple Set controls. As easy to operate as a home thermostat, Simple Set controls can be used to keep the spa running at the perfect temperature at any time of year.
In fact, AnyTemp spa technology is so effective that even in 115-degree weather with 85 percent humidity, it can maintain a refreshing water temperature of just 85 degrees.
The Benefits of AnyTemp
With its ability to provide a wide range of temperatures, AnyTemp spa technology also offers a variety of substantial benefits.
That’s because AnyTemp technology can combine the benefits of both hot and cold hydrotherapy.
Hydrotherapy involves the use of water of various temperatures to improve one’s health. It’s commonly employed in the fields of physiotherapy and occupational therapy, as well as alternative medicine.
Users who are looking for hydrotherapeutic treatments need only set their spa to a cold or hot temperature.
Cold temperatures have been found to:
- Reduce inflammation.
- Numb pain.
- Increase blood flow to vital organs.
On the other hand, hot temperatures can:
- Relax muscles.
- Loosen joints.
- Increase blood flow to the skin.
As an added bonus, both hot and cold temperatures have been found to reduce depressive symptoms (to learn more about hot and cold therapy and their respective benefits, check out our previous blog post here).
While most spas only offer the benefits of hot hydrotherapy, AnyTemp spa technology allows users to reap the benefits of both hot and cold hydrotherapy with the touch of a button.
Whether you live in the humid heat of Florida or the dry, frigid climate of Alaska, AnyTemp technology can create the perfect spa experience for you.
