Summer may be just around the corner and for a lot of people that means lazy days by the pool and summer activities. However, the days fade into nights, and the pool can easily be replaced by a hot tub for mid-summer night social gatherings. A traditional garden tub that compliments the backyard and can increase the property value of the house. With summer right around the corner now is the perfect time to set one up before firing up the grill and inviting your friends round.
Traditional garden hot tubs are a superb all-around investment and not just for summer nights. Hot tubs can quickly become a tradition to unwind after work all throughout the year. While a traditional garden hot tub is easy to installed in an area of the backyard, there is also the option for an inflatable hot tub.
The inflatable hot tubs can be just as appealing as a traditional, especially when considering the price. A traditional garden tub will cost more due to the installation process whereas the inflatable hot tubs don’t require too much to labor set them up.
What’s the Best Time of Year to Buy a Hot Tub?
The best time to purchase a hot tub is not during the summer months, but actually during winter months. The prices drop drastically when the weather is colder as many manufacturers include deals and deep discounts for installation during these months to help pull in customers when business is slow. Winter months also allow people to enjoy their tubs for longer periods of time as opposed to the summer months when it can get too hot to relax.
There are a few things to consider when buying a hot tub, whether it is an inflatable one or a traditional garden tub. First off, inflatable tubs may come at a lower price and can be easily disassembled should the house be sold, they are more likely to have irrigation issues, and filtering is up to the owner.
Whereas traditional garden hot tubs have filter systems installed and are permanently bound to one area of the backyard. Inflatable hot tubs are more likely to be placed inside a home than a traditional garden hot tub.
Always pick the hot tub that best suits your personal needs. If you are looking to increase the value of the home, go with traditional. If the hot tub is more for right now and short term, then go with an inflatable hot tub. But remember to begin shopping around for the hot tub during the winter months where you will get the best deals.
