Top tips for saving energy for pools and hot tubs:
Upgrade your pool pump
In terms of swimming pools and hot tubs, pumps are the biggest energy consumers. When you upgrade to the latest pump technology, you can see a significant reduction in energy costs.
For example, if you are currently using a single speed pump for a barefoot spa or home pool, consider a variable speed pump. You can also use automatic retractable pool enclosure system to protect your pool and patio area in bad weather.
The variable speed pump offers better energy optimization as the pump speed is changed as needed. The variable speed pump also gives you better energy efficiency, especially if you have a complex water feature such as a fountain.
Wells and other water supply systems do not require as much energy as a normal circulating pool. So if you are using a variable speed pump you can change the speed of the pump.
A few small changes can significantly lower your overall energy consumption and lower your energy costs.
There are upfront costs associated with investing in a new filter or pool pump. The total savings you get from this are well worth the investment.
Use these smart tips and enjoy the pool or hot tub without worrying about expensive energy bills.
