Visited a house with one yesterday. I find it interesting that there are no power specs printed in the manual, like they’re hiding something. And then, when you hunt up EE recs for tubs, they’re hard to find.
One common statement from mfrs is “don’t turn them off.” Is this true? Smells untrue. And “it takes more energy to heat it from the start than it does to keep it hot.” Like what we were told about starting up our PCs.
This one’s on 24/7/365. Does anybody have a handy resource or remember a research paper or something? I found a handy usage calculator, in Britain, so I just need to convert pence to cents. My quick calc says this one’s costing about $100/mo to operate ($0.37/kWh here in Hawaii).
