A match made in heaven

The Clim8zone™ heat pump is perfectly compatible with Northern Lights latest systems
northern lights and the clim8zone heat pump

The Clim8zone™ heat pump is designed in such a way that it can be installed both hydraulically and electronically in conjuction with a Northern Lights spa system. For the USA this might not be the case in all states, though. The heat pump is powered directly by the Northern Lights spa system, no additional power line is therefore needed. The Northern Lights spa system’s software will then operate the heat pump fully automatically. Note that an updated Northern Lights control unit and a Spatouch3 control panel are required. The Clim8zone heat pump cannot be retrofitted if the existing spa system does not have the required updated control unit and a suitable Spatouch3 control panel. Contact us for more information if you wish to add the Clim8zone heat pump to your existing Northern Lights hot tub.

Dimensions and minimum clearances

Follow the minimum clearance requirements to allow free air flow


Mount the heat pump on a flat and horizontal surface like a concrete slab or tiled floor. It is recommended that the heat pump be installed no more than 2m from the spa system. Do not install the Clim8zone indoors. Drill mounting holes in the cement slab or tiled floor and secure the heat pump using expansion wedge anchores. Make sure to place a rubber foot pad under each foot of the heat pump first (included).

clim8zone distances


Follow the minimum clearance requirements shown above during installation and operation of the Clim8zone heat pump. These clearances insure proper air flow and easy access. All air vents must be unobstructed and free of leaves and debris. Air is sucked in through the rectangular air vent and blow out through the round air vent by the heat pump’s fan. Use suitable pvc pipes to connect the heat pump to the spa system.
