'Wood' you be better off with a Cotswold Eco Tub?

Updated: Dec 1, 2020

At Hot Tubs in France we understand that making the decision to buy a hot tub is an important one and one that involves considering purchase price, quality and running costs. You need to consider whether you want to step into an expensive electric one or into an affordable luxury Cotswold Eco Tub.

Allow us to give you some comparable information.

Let's talk money first

To purchase a 'Burford Deluxe' 5-6 person wood burning hot tub from Cotswold Eco Tubs, with an integrated stove, fibreglass interior, 6 LED lights, air bubble massage, fibreglass lid and a matching exterior and steps, will only cost 5187 € (incl TVA).

This is a highly competitive price, especially in France. For a market-leading electric hot tub, with the same seating capacity, you would have to spend at least 8000 €. No contest so far...

Delivery and Installation

Hot Tubs In France can deliver your wood-burning hot tub for FREE (within 1 hour from our base) or negotiate a small diesel cost for areas if you are further afield.

We will unpack, assemble and position your tub (as long as access allows) for FREE. Before we leave we will ensure you are happy with your tub and we also provide an excellent after care service if needed.

Electric hot tubs, on the other hand, require a crane or a team of 4-6 people to man-handle the hot tub into position, plus a qualified electrician to connect it - all extra costs. Think we are still ahead..


No maintenance or service costs required for your Cotswold Eco Tub, whereas you will have to pay at least 400 € to service your electric tub - on top of your hefty electric bill!

Financially, the wood-fired Cotswold Eco Tub beats the electric one on all counts.

What about style, design and location?

The wooden exterior comes in a range of different finishes so the Cotswold Eco Tub blends beautifully into any space. And as it does not need to be wired-up, it can be located in any part of your garden, field or woods.

However, the electric tub, due to its weight and need for a 16-32 amp electrical supply cannot be located just anywhere. Notch up another win for the wood-fired variety!

Caring for the Environment

Finally, what about the environment?

Eco-friendly is an important factor in today's world. A wood-burning tub uses a renewable and sustainable fuel source. When wood burns it releases no more CO2 than if it were left to rot, so it's carbon neutral. This really is a 'green', friendly way to relax. One that brings you close to nature and a big step away from the urban, electricity-powered versions.

You can judge a hot tub on how environmentally friendly it is by its energy consumption. The ones that lessen its energy consumption theoretically help its carbon footprint.

So yet again the wood burning hot tub is deemed to be far better for the world we live in than the electric model.

All things considered then, you know you 'wood' be much better off with a Cotswold Eco Tub, delivered and installed in your garden by our expert team at Hot Tubs in France.
