Your clients want to walk into your SPA and feel the strains of everyday life just melt away. That means a warm and welcoming reception area no doubt offering calm and soothing music and lighting. One way you can help yourself to reduce your SPA’s electricity bills is taking a look at the lighting options available to your business both back and front of house.
Utility Bidder advise carrying out a lighting audit to see exactly where you can replace or upgrade light bulbs to the most energy efficient versions and look to find areas that would work with motion sensor lighting.
In terms of facilities if you are a large SPA you may have a leisure pool which will be a big energy user and by being aware of simple things such as optimum water temperatures could make a difference to your bills. If the pool water is over heated it can cause the pool water to evaporate. This means you will have to continually run a high ventilation rate and this will, over time, also cause condensation which is damaging to the fabric of your building. A leisure pool should be around 29ºC – and remember the pool hall itself should usually be heated to 1ºC above the pool water temperature. Investing in, and using a whole pool cover will also help reduce the energy cost of your SPA pool and while it may seem like a costly capital outlay, in terms of energy savings made, it should have paid for itself within a couple of years.
