Our Green Philosophy
Buttermilk Spa concentrates on a green philosophy utilizing products that are natural and plant based.
The spa itself utilizes the power of the sun and earth to heat the sauna, steam room and Endless Pool using both Solar and Geothermal Energy.
In winter, the electricity we generate from solar sources is used to extract heat from below the earth’s surface to heat the building and provide radiantly heated floors. The stunning glass enclosed pool area is wrapped in the latest in energy efficient windows.
In summer, heat is transferred from the interior of the building and into the ground. Cool air is then cycled back into the building. Ground temperatures remain at a constant 55 degrees, 10 feet below the Earth’s surface. Heat travels much more efficiently through the ground than the air. Our 14 geothermal wells are 175 feet below the ground.
