FreeHeat™ Perimeter Insulation System
The investment in constructing a self-supporting shell allows Arctic Spas® to insulate differently than everyone else.
For our design inspiration, we didn’t have to look far, our homes in northern Canada provided us all we needed. We insulate the exterior walls, the floors and most importantly the attics of our homes and we tuck everything important to us within this insulated envelope.
Ambient heat from the pump penetrates the spa shell and heats the water. In winter this heat returns to the pump area in the event of a power loss. We have always believed that insulation below the water surface is of small value if the areas above and directly to the sides of the water are not adequately insulated (seriously, doesn’t heat rise?).
The “attic” of our design is our Mylovac cover, which at 5” of thickness and featuring a full-length baffle is capable of retaining even more of your energy dollars. Next, high density polyurethane foam is applied to the cabinet walls and lip underside to a thickness that stops heat loss. We finish off this insulation envelope with the same foam applied into our floor systems.
Then, we place all our equipment inside this cocoon, creating a perfect, stable operating environment.
