VITA Spa Construction
The Vital Energy Insulation System
The Vital Energy insulation system features the eco-friendly 'BlueMAAX®' insulation. Made from recycled natural fiber it is approved by the U.S. Green Building Council. The insulation contains no chemical irritants, is treated with a borate-based solution to prevent mold/mildew growth, pest infestation, and acts as a fire retardant. BlueMAAX® replaces urethane foam commonly used in "foam filled" hot tubs. The "foam filling" process in conventional spas can produce as much as 50 lbs. of volatile organic components (VOC's) which are harmful to the environment. The new energy system also allows for easy service access, and can be taken out and put back together to factory specifications right in your home.
Vital Energy is the ultimate in sound and heat energy management for your hot tub. The unique thermal barrier technology recycles radiant heat energy for faster, more efficient heating and energy cost reductions. Radiant heat reflective insulation is applied to the sealed ABS base, which prohibits heat loss through the floor. All four sides, plus the floor are lined with reflective material, combined with BlueMAAX® to create an infrared thermal barrier. Radiant heat energy from the pumps and equipment reflects back to the spa and is absorbed into the plumbing. This helps raise and maintain water temperature, improving heat efficiency. Energy created by the spa stays in the spa.
