How to Make Your Pool More Energy Efficient | Sunshine Fun
Learn how to save money on your energy bill and help protect the environment with these energy efficient pool upgrades.
Pool ownership can cause you to be concerned with how much your pool may be costing you energy-wise. In order to save money on your energy bill and help protect the environment, here are four ways to increase the energy efficiency of your pool.
Cover Your Pool
Pool covers have one sole purpose when it comes to energy efficiency: preventing evaporation. Though it may not seem like it, a lot of work goes into preparing water for a pool. Filters and heating systems have to be used in order to produce water that is safe to swim in. Once this water reaches the pool, it has already spent a great deal of energy.
By allowing the water in the pool to evaporate during the times that you are not using it, only more filtered water will have to replace it, which means spending more energy. A pool cover will be able to illuminate unnecessary evaporation, which could ultimately help you save on energy costs.
Stay Up to Date With Regular Pool Maintenance
Having maintenance performed on your pool regularly can help reduce energy costs as well. For instance, if your pool filter is clogged with a mess of leaves and other debris, it could cause your pool to do more work when it comes to filtering.
Hiring professionals to perform maintenance on and clean your pool can help flush out these potentially energy-sucking systems. Regular maintenance and cleaning can ensure that your pool is working properly and not exerting extra effort when it is not necessary.
Upgrade Your Pool Pump
Thanks to the latest innovation in technology, Haywardâ has developed the TriStarâ VS pool pump, which was designed specifically for high performance and energy efficiency. This variable speed pump can replace most high performance, oversized pumps due to its alternative pumping methods. And with a 24-hour programmable clock and custom timers, you would have full control of when your pool pump runs. By using an energy calculator, you would get to see just how much one of these systems could help you save on energy costs.
Invest in an Energy Saving System
Being able to keep your pool in tip-top shape and running efficiently without having to lift a finger sounds like a dream come true to pool owners. A&A Manufacturing offers low maintenance, high energy saving systems which can do just that. This energy-efficient, automated cleaning and circulation system can keep your pool looking and running like new, all while cutting back on energy costs. Not to mention, this system is attractive, too. You don’t have to stare at ugly hoses or attachments, as this particular system is invisible and silent while it cleans and circulates.
Do you want to save up to 90 percent in utility costs for your pool? If so, now is the time to act. Here at Sunshine Fun Pools, we are currently offering up to 75 percent off of certain pool packages including the Hayward’s TriStar Multispeed Pump and the A&A Energy Saving System.
