The going “green” movement has taken over the United States for quite some time now. In areas with hot summer temperatures, swimming pools and longer summer temperatures homeowners are always looking for ways to lower their electricity bills. Whether it’s making energy efficient upgrades to your house or going solar if it makes sense people will do it. In Las Vegas the summer temps seem to be lasting longer and if you have a swimming pool, educating yourself on energy efficient pumps and motors is something we highly recommend and we hope this blog post gives you insight on why installing one would be a wise choice.
Is it possible to not only save energy but also maintain an enjoyable swimming pool by using a smaller, higher efficient pump and operating it less? The simple answer to that question is YES! Depending on the brand you buy, energy efficient pumps will use anywhere from 35-45% less energy than a standard pool pump. With savings like that, the difference between a standard pump and an energy efficient pump can be quite substantial. These pumps do come in a variety of speeds so you have total control over how much turnover you need depending on the time of year and cleanliness of your swimming pool. If you’re looking to save money, we definitely suggest looking into an energy efficient pump today!
