At Clark County Pool & Lawn, we love energy efficient pumps and want this blog post to help inform you of which one is the best and why you will want to install one today!
In many households, there has been a major shift in thinking over the last several years. This shift has been in the ways people are thinking about installing more energy efficient appliances in their homes. Energy rates continue to climb at extremely fast rates which leaves many homeowners looking for ways to cut back and save money! At Clark County Pool & Lawn, we can’t blame them and we have noticed a large increase in sales and installation over the last couple of years of energy efficiency pumps!
It is possible to save energy and maintain an enjoyable swimming pool by using a smaller, higher efficiency pump and by operating it less. Did you know, an energy efficient pump will use anywhere from 35-45% less energy than that of a standard pump? With those type of savings, the difference between a standard pump and an energy efficient pump can be quite substantial! These pumps now come in a variety of speeds so you have full control over how many turnovers you need depending on the time of year and cleanliness of your swimming pool. Depending on where you live and if you own a swimming pool, we definitely suggest looking into an energy efficient pump to help you save money on your house because the savings are immediate. You can also use the following residential pool pump savings calculator to see approximately what switching can save you.
At Clark County Pool & Lawn, we can install a variety of energy efficient pumps but our favorite is the Pentair IntelliFlo Energy Efficient Pumps. “The IntelliFlo VSF pump provides precise flow control, which means increased efficiency, savings, and performance. The pump’s innovative dual-technology design ensures the desired flow rate is maintained, no matter the conditions. Plus, the IntelliFlo VSF pump helps the rest of your equipment perform exactly as it’s meant to—from filters to waterfalls. The IntelliFlo VSF variable speed and flow pump are just another in a long line of innovative products from Pentair.” We feel that its longevity, name brand and the fact that it moves more water per horsepower makes it a smart buy. The following features are another reason why its the brand we recommend first….
- Uses 90% less energy than single speed pumps
- New rotatable keypad with optional wall mount kit (sold separately)
- Menus are easier to use
- Eight programmable speed settings
- Quieter operation
