Do the jets have to be on to heat the hot tub?
The jets do not have to be turned on to heat the hot tub, however, it is recommended if you want the best experience from your hot tub.

So, if the day is hot your hot tub will heat up fairly quickly, however, if it is a cold day and in winter temperatures then it will take longer to heat up.
Leaving the cover on your hot tub while heating it also will help it heat up quickly as it stops the air around the hot tub from interfering with the heat of the water too much.
Putting the jets on will also make an adverse effect, as it will help circulate the heated water around the hot tub, therefore, making it heat up quicker.
