Hot tubs are an easy way for you to add a little rest and relaxation to your backyard or home. Whether you are looking for a new hot tub or own an existing one, we have many custom pool lights for you to choose from.
The type of lights that you use will definitely set the mood for the type of jacuzzi or hot tub experience that you want to create. Remember, everything from the style to the color of the pool lights installed can affect your experience.
Red lights, for example, look cool but can become irritating to the eyes after many hours of enjoying the tub. Choosing many different colored bulbs may also look cool, but not every tub experience needs to look like a rave.
Here are the main types of lights that you can choose, followed by a few tips on why light placement matters on your tub.
Incandescent lights are great for a few reasons. First, they are very affordable. Second, they are not complex to understand, or swap out, should they burn out.
The lights you typically use to light your home are incandescent lights.
Third, they turn on and off quickly, meaning that you do not need to wait for your lights to build up illumination when what you really want to do is enjoy your tub!
If you want a no-frills solution for your tub, without any complexity attached, consider purchasing incandescent lights.
LED lights are great for outdoor hot tubs. LEDs are capable of working in subzero temperatures, last for a very long time, and are very durable.
If you have an outdoor installation, LED lighting is definitely a light type to consider.
LED lights are also very energy-efficient, allowing you to save more money, not only in replacing the lighting, but also on your electrical bill. For the budget-conscious pool owner, LED lights have no equal.
Halogen lights are great for tub owners who are a soothing and calming experience while using their tub, or jacuzzi. The light emitted by halogen lights is white in hue, which reduces eye strain and irritation. They basically enhance the other colors of their surrounding areas, which make for a vivid experience while relaxing in your tub.
As a bonus, halogen lights are also energy efficient, and last a very long time, allowing you to help the environment and reduce your environmental footprint. There is a reason why many people choose halogen lights for their floodlights, basking their backyards in a calming white glow.
You can create the same effect for your hot-tub.
Should I Choose Flush-Mounted or Surface-Mounted Lights?
The difference between flush-mounted and surface-mounted lights is mainly a matter of preference. Surface-mounted lights are, as their name suggests, mounted on the surface of your jacuzzi or hot-tub. Flush-mounted lights are mounted to be “flush” with the walls of your tub.
The placement of the lights will affect how your lights are displayed. Surface-mounted lights will remain brighter on the surface of your tub, while flush-mounted lights will illuminate the interior walls of the tub. Depending on the type of hot tub experience you want, surface-mounted or flush-mounted incandescent, LED, or halogen lights, will be the better option for you.
Choosing a light type and placement for your tub is a choice that you will need to consider. Once installed, changing the light type or location will require modifications to your tub, and could be expensive.
