Article Top 5 Ways to Enjoy Your Hot Tub in the Summer By Probuilt Staff March 15, 2023

When you think of hot tubs, you probably think of something you use during the cold winter months to relax, unwind, and warm up. That’s true. However, when winter gives way to spring and the warmer months of summer, you don’t have to close up your hot tub. You can still enjoy using it during that beloved time of the year when birds are singing, kids are laughing and playing outside, and the sun is shining down upon you.

Using a hot tub in the summer has many benefits:

  1. Just turn down the heat. Just because it’s a hot tub does not necessarily mean it always has to be hot. Even though hot tubs are usually enjoyed with temperature settings between 99° F and 104° F, it’s perfectly acceptable to lower the temperature of the water a bit for summertime fun.
  2. Give your body a break. Typically, during the summer months, we spend more time outdoors engaging in any number of physical activities: walking, running, yard work, golfing, and generally just taking advantage of the improved weather. As we all know – especially as we age – all of that activity can take a toll on our bodies. When you have a hot tub, you can use it as a means to soothe your tired and aching muscles after a long day. Take full advantage of the massaging jets to relieve your sore muscles and alleviate any tension you might have in your body.
  3. Improve the quality of your sleep. Imagine a clear, crisp, and starry night. You want to do something but perhaps aren’t in the mood to go out. Why not take a dip in your hot tub? Just settle into the comforting water, close your eyes, and let the moment of relaxation do its thing. This can prepare you for a good night’s sleep and often can help you fall asleep faster. It’s a known fact that plentiful and restful sleep is an essential part of living a healthy lifestyle.
  4. Alleviate those annoying summer allergies. Because hot tubs produce steam, this can provide a natural way to treat many types of sinus ailments such as allergies. A study in the Journal of Integrative Medicine in 2017 noted that steam baths have a significant impact on reducing symptoms associated with allergies, nasal congestion, sneezing, and nasal itching.
  5. Enjoy this great source of entertainment. Invite some friends over for a fun evening in your backyard paradise. When the weather forecast calls for clear conditions, take full advantage of a fantastic evening to spend quality time with friends and family. These are the moments that will linger with you for a lifetime. Enjoy them while you can!

Even though winter is in the rearview mirror, there is no need to turn your back on your hot tub for the summer season. In fact, it is a great time to make full use of such an amazing and beneficial amenity to have in your backyard.
