The more power the better, right? That seems to be the common thought when it comes to electricity. However, when it comes to your hot tub, that is not necessarily the case. Let’s clear the water and dive into the differences between a 120-volt and 240-volt hot tub.

The first and most obvious difference is the voltage on which the hot tub runs. The 240v simply means that more watts can move through the wires. But which hot tub is right for you? Is bigger always better?

To start, it is important to consider your lifestyle and how you see yourself enjoying your hot tub. For example, do you live in a milder climate and will be using the hot tub for relaxing, casual soaks? If you answered yes, a 120v “Plug & Play” may be the perfect option. Even though these hot tubs tend to require additional time to reheat the water, 120v hot tubs are considered the most convenient because they simply plug into your standard household outlet. This feature also makes for an easier move to different locations.  The most difficult choice would be picking which color you want!

On the contrary, a 240v hot tub will not be “Plug & Play” ready and would need to be hard-wired by an electrician. The extra voltage allows the heating time of the hot tub to be quicker than a 120v and able to support additional features sometimes not found on “Plug and Play” models.
