“Clim8zone™ II is about half the size of its first-generation counterpart and remains the most energy efficient and cost-effective way to heat or cool the water of your spa,” said Josef Matosevic, President and Chief Executive Officer of Helios. “We are proud to partner with and support Master Spas with their products including their new line of Michael Phelps Chilly GOAT Cold Tubs. This includes a unique contrast therapy tub that is using the new Clim8zone™ II technology. It features two bodies of water and two sets of temperature controls, giving users the flexibility to switch between cold water immersion and warm water relaxation.”

The Clim8zone™ II’s revolutionary design answers the health and wellness industry’s need to reduce the cost of running a spa. Its auto smart mode uses artificial intelligence and sensors to automatically adjust the compressor speed up or down while offering world-class quiet accelerated heating or cooling of the spa water. The result is a drastic reduction of the cost of maintaining the hot tub’s desired water temperature while using significantly less energy.

Additional features and benefits of the Clim8zone™ II:

  • Unlike other spa heat pumps on the market, Clim8zone™ II functions at low ambient air temperatures (- 5°C/- 23ºF) in colder climates.
  • Variable speed compressor with smart algorithm.
  • Operates quietly at less than 45dBA.
  • Operates effortlessly from the SpaTouch3™ panel or remotely from smart phones.
  • Fully integrated with the BP Systems and uses the same spa heating pump as the spa’s traditional electric element heater.
  • Features a typical energy efficiency (COP) of 5 times a traditional spa heater and may reach up to 10 times in certain operating conditions, using less energy to keep the water hot, providing significant smart savings.
  • One heat pump efficiency mode setting: auto smart mode as default, which features high energy efficiency.
  • Allows the spa user to set the spa BP Control System to utilize the Clim8zone™ Heat Pump alone, the spa’s traditional electric element heater alone, or both simultaneously when necessary.
  • 19.6” (L) x 19.5” (W) x 19.1” (H).
