When it comes to your hot tub, you may have put ample effort into choosing the perfect model, carefully selecting the size, features, and design to ensure it met your needs.
But when it came to your hot tub cover, did you do the same?
It’s not uncommon for your hot tub cover to have been an afterthought, assuming the traditional covers you usually see when researching spas are the industry standard.
Here’s the thing.
While traditional covers are both popular and effective, there’s another type of hot tub cover on the market that’s been redefining what it can offer…
Whether you’ve considered investing in one before, or this is your first introduction to these modern hot tub covers, you’ll find everything you need to know about them below.
In this article, you’ll discover what makes Covana Covers stand apart from their traditional predecessors, the six incredible benefits they offer, and learn about the three styles Paradise Valley Spas offers.
The Difference Between Traditional Hot Tub Covers and Covana Covers
Covana covers and traditional ones have various aspects that make them stand apart from one another, but there are three that are the most significant.
The main difference between traditional covers and Covana covers is their functionality.
Traditional covers are heavy, bulky, and often require a lifting system to make opening and closing your spa easier.
Covana covers, on the other hand, are completely automatic, lifting way to expose the crystal clear water of your spa with a simple turn of a key.
Another stark difference is their affordability, one of the few areas traditional covers come out on top.
Covana covers are an investment with a higher price tag, and with traditional covers costing anywhere from $500 to $1000, it’s easy to see why many people still gravitate toward them.
But Covana covers more than makeup for that cost over the years, especially when you consider how many traditional covers you’d need to buy over the 15-20 year lifespan of your spa.
Covana overs have a significantly longer lifespan that rivals that of your hot tub, saving you ample money on replacements over the years.
Traditional covers break down over the years, requiring you to replace them with a new one every four or five years.
Covana covers have overcome that obstacle.
6 Benefits of Covana Covers
Covana covers boast an impressive array of benefits that have left many hot tub owners raving after making the investment.
By making the choice to invest in one for your hot tub, you could experience these six benefits over the course of your spa’s lifetime.
As mentioned above, Covana covers are completely automatic.
The only thing you have to do is insert the key and turn it, and the cover will begin lifting away to have your spa ready to step into in as little as 30 seconds.
This makes it infinitely more convenient to enjoy a soothing spa session and ensures your relaxed muscles can stay completely released after you step out of the water.
No more worrying about lifting a heavy cover after you’ve just spent time recovering in the warm water.
All you have to do is put the key back in and turn it. No additional work is required!
This is another aspect thats highly appealing.
Unlike traditional covers that require additional cover locks to be put in place, Covana covers are unable to be opened without the key.
This means that as long as the key is in your possession or tucked away where only the adults in the house can reach it, no one can enter your spa.
You’ll no longer have to worry about unwelcome visitors while you’re away on vacation.
Better yet, if you have animals or young children, you won’t have to worry about them getting into the hot tub without you knowing.
3. Energy Efficiency
Covana covers are designed with thick insulation that tightly seals around the entire surface of your hot tub.
This makes it incredibly energy efficient by minimizing heat loss from cracks or poor insulation.
Not only does this ensure your heater doesn’t have to work as hard to maintain the temperature of your water throughout the day, but it keeps your energy bills lower through the minimal workload.
While we mentioned the lifespan of Covana covers above, their durability far exceeds just that.
These covers have been designed to withstand the extreme winter temperatures in Canada, making them incredibly durable.
By combining rigid ABS thermoplastic for the hardtop with a high-efficiency fiber-reinforced XPS thermal core, these covers were made to withstand even the harshest conditions without faltering.
5. Enhanced Privacy
All Covana covers include various retractable privacy screen options, some even boasting elegant, vibrant designs to enhance their visual impact.
This provides you with not only privacy from above but also ensures you can add privacy instantly whenever you need it, without requiring permanent privacy structures in your backyard.
These covers are one of the most effective options for protecting your spa from the elements both during and after use, maintaining the temperature of your water with the least amount of work, and making enjoying your spa as simple as possible.
With their various designs, it’s easy to find one that meets your needs and provides an elegant solution for your hot tub.
The Different Covana Covers For Your Hot Tub or Swim Spa
Covana covers come in three distinct styles, each with its own unique appeal.
While two have been designed for hot tubs, there is a third that was specifically designed to meet the needs of swim spa owners.
The Covana Evolution is a sleek hot tub cover that boasts an elegant flat top to give you unobstructed views whether it’s open or closed.
Compatible with various privacy screens, this Covana cover makes it easy to add some seclusion in the areas you need it most.
This cover is compatible with most hot tub sizes and shapes, making it one of the most versatile options offered by Covana.
The Covana Evolution comes in two distinct colors, either slate or mocha, ensuring it will seamlessly fit into any aesthetic.
This cover boasts a classic gazebo design when opened, with its subtly peaked roof and optional panoramic privacy screens.
The Covana Oasis is far more than the perfect combination of a hot tub cover and a gazebo. It’s also a therapeutic escape!
With stunning LED lighting in its ceiling, you can enhance your spa sessions with the powerful benefits of light therapy.
With its long, slender design and dense insulation, your swim spa will be impressively energy efficient and easier to use than ever before.
This cover won’t hinder your backyard atmosphere with an unsightly design that needs to be pushed back each time you want to enjoy a swim in your spa.
Instead, you can look past its smooth, seamless surface anytime you’re not in the water and enjoy the added privacy and protection from the elements it provides when you turn the key to open your spa.
Is a Covana Cover Worth It?
Covana covers come with a high price than traditional covers and are certainly an added expense when first buying your hot tub, but their benefits undeniably make up the cost in the long run.
From the enhanced privacy and the energy efficiency these covers provide, you’ll not only need to invest in fewer backyard essentials, but you’ll keep energy bills low.
Furthermore, you’ll get peace of mind knowing no one can access your spa without your express permission or knowledge.
Whether you’re in the process of buying your first hot tub or it’s time to buy a new cover for your existing spa, a Covana cover is easily one of the most effective, durable solutions that you’ll get years of enjoyment out of.
