Where Can I Locate my Hot Tub, Indoors Or Outdoors?

Hot tub location

Hot tubs offer the ideal place to gather with family and friends. They provide a space to unwind, relax and relieve the day’s stress. However, when purchasing a hot tub, you need to decide where you want to place it. Do you prefer indoors in the privacy of your home or outside in your backyard? Consider the following when choosing between an indoor hot tub cove and an outdoor hot tub oasis:


The amount of space available in your house is the ultimate deciding factor. A full 4-seat hot tub will weigh over a 1000 kg and may take up a bit of space. Do you plan to build a new room for your indoor hot tub or place it in an existing area? The other factor to consider is whether your hot tub can fit through your front door.

Depending on your outdoor setup, you can place it on an open space or install it into the ground. You may need to place it on the patio or deck, or install it into the ground with a proper foundation to support it.


Hot tubs produce water vapor and condensation, therefore proper ventilation is something important to consider. A well-ventilated area can prevent the growth of mold and mildew. An indoor tub needs a ventilator to help circulate the hot, moist air, such as a bathroom ventilator system. However, if you are placing the hot tub outdoors, you don’t need to worry about ventilation.


An indoor hot tub allows you to relax without having to endure the frigid temperatures. Locating a hot tub indoors also protects it from weather conditions that can damage it.

An outdoor hot tub provides you with the luxury of soaking during a snowstorm and relaxing during summertime. However, exposing it to weather elements can accelerate wear and tear. It also requires frequent cleaning to clear debris, leaves and bugs.
