How To Save Money With Energy Efficient Pumps
In the United States, 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. That goes for pools too! There’s no question that homeowners are definitely looking for ways to increase their dollar especially when energy rates continue to climb. At Clark County Pool & Lawn, we understand because our summers are long, our electric bills are high, which in turn has caused a large increase in sales and installation over the last couple of years of energy efficiency pumps.
First and foremost, it is possible to save energy and maintain an enjoyable swimming pool by using a smaller, higher efficiency pump and by operating it less. Typically, an energy efficient pump will use anywhere from 35-45% less energy than that of a standard pump. With savings like that, the difference between a standard pump and an energy efficient pump can be quite drastic. 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.
At Clark County Pool & Lawn we highly recommend and primarily install Pentair IntelliFlo energy efficient pool pumps. The IntelliFlo® VSF Pump is the first to adjust to changes in flow conditions to maintain its preprogrammed flow rate to run optimally throughout the entire filtration cycle. It’s like having cruise control for your pump. Since the IntelliFlo VSF pump is ultra energy efficient, you can experience increased energy savings, up to 90%, when compared to conventional single- or two-speed pumps.
